Hi, so I got my tooth removed on may 25 and it is now may 31 and I looked in my mouth to see that one of my wisdom tooth wholes looks completely different from the other I have some very very mild pain in the tooth next to the extraction site that’s more open but other than that I do not feel much discomfort. I wanted to show a picture and see if the site looks ok or if I should be worried of dry socket or infections?

Good day

Usually a dry socket is accompanied by severe pain in the first 3 to 5 days after the extraction. If the pain is only mild, most likely it is only post-op surgical pain, which is normal. Follow the instructions gave to you by your dentist/oral surgeon and healing should progress normally.
