I got my wisdom teeth pulled on the third. They've been healing fine and I've been eating normal foods and feeling no pain ever since the 12th. In the last couple of days a bunch of white stuff has been getting dislodged (from the googling I've done, it's just dead tissue on top of the healing site and is normal). Well, today a huge white thing got loose in the site and I dislodged it with my tongue semi-accidentally (it got loose and I thought it was food stuck). And then I checked in the mirror and there's a small hole in the gum. This is worrying me a lot. I really don't want to go to the dentist to get a dry socket filled, but I don't think it is one. There's been no pain since I've opened the hole (though I am only writing 15 minutes after) and I didn't feel pain or discomfort in that area before either. I drank a little water to see if that would give me a shock of pain and it didn't. Is it a dry socket? Do I need to go to the dentist to get it filled? Is it normal? If I don't go there will it eventually close on it's own? Thank you so much!!!!
