I had oral surgery 7 days ago. The other day I woke up to ripped stitches and since then they have been poking me and the skin where they were are now exposed. Under that skin is white stuff inside a whole. I have been following all after care guidelines but I am still worried if it is just the creamy white granulation tissue that forms during healing or if it is dry socket?

Good day

Most oral surgeons use a form of resorbable sutures. They usually only last for about 7-10 days, and then start to dissolve with the water in your mouth. So don't stress too much about this.
The photo isn't the best quality, but I don't believe you have a dry socket. A dry socket usually appears after 3-4 days, and is extremely painful.
If you are not in pain, then it is my conclusion that everything is healing as it should.

Hope this helps.
