    Causing minimal pain as long as I keep taking ibuprofen but still concerned because of the way it looks and feels in the mouth, I am taking antibiotics day 2 of them, but it worries me from the dark area and then the yellow, excuse the saliva bubbles, it also make the rest of my teeth from tooth numbers 24-31 feel tingly and it kinda causes pain near/in my ear to where I feel like anytime I lay on that side of my face it begins to start the pain again or if I bend down low enough I begin to feel it . Is it a Dry socket or just irritated?? also forgot to mention it was Fully erupted.

    It is not a dry socket. The light yellow is the developing epithelium. The extraction site appears healing WNL. If you have worsening pain and or swelling, get it checked out. Otherwise, allow it to heal and minimize disturbing the area.
