Other info: I don't smoke and haven't drank anything alcoholic months before getting my molar pulled out. There isn't any pain at all, whether I drink cold drinks, hot drinks, or eat food. Yesterday, the white stuff was there and I heard it was a good sign, but today it's gone and it's just a bit with some stuff visible at the bottom. Haven't taken any pain medication either, only supplements prescribed to me for gum healing by my dentist. I was also told I could eat normally by now but not chew on that side yet and I haven't so, what could it be? Am I still in the clear?
