    Had a tooth out last Wednesday and 5 days after i am still getting some pain where the socket is.

    so i asked my wife to take a photo of it and can see some yellow/white on it as in the photo i have added to this post.

    so does it look ok or do i need to go back to my dentist?

    Hi i went back to see my dentist and it was dry socket so he put some meds into the socket and it cleared up after a couple of days.

    so i would get back to your dentist and tell him or her that you think its dry socket and they will sort it out for you.

    Let us know how you get on.

    dont forget to wash your month out with Warm salt water a few times a day and after food as that will help as well.
