My Mood: 3 weeks after a tooth extraction -is it ok if the socket is still kind a red inside ?


Thank you for the kind words. I really appreciate it

I am a worrier too and always have a boat load of questions. So I understand where your concerns are coming from

Hopefully you will see improvement in that red area in just a few days time.

No pain, just a " tugging " puffy, tender feeling. I still rinse with a warm salt water 3-4 times a day, I don't eat on that side yet and I don't brush the extraction site yet, just around it.
Is this normal healing ? Or I should go back to the OS ? I didn't have a post op appointment , he doesn't do that if there are no problems .
Hey nyuszisue, I came across your post because I have exactly the same symptoms as you did back when you posted this, and on the very same tooth. Could you kindly tell me if your symptoms were resolved without additional intervention and how long did that take, if you remember? I'd greatly appreciate any update!
