I got 2 roots out today that werethe from broken teeth.
This evening very sore..but coping with pain killers so far.

I have noticed what feels like a hard lump/spot in the back, it's feels flat and small, but I presume this wouldn't be of any concern, after all the roots have come away?

Also attached is the photo of what I hope is a good blood clot in the socket, is it?

Hey there Angie xo,
Very difficult to tell from the photo but looks OK. It would be normal for it to be feeling sore at this stage.
As long as it does not deteriorate after about 48 hours you should be fine.

Thanks Drhirst, I'll keep you posted on this thread.
Hopefully some good sleep will help me feel better tomorrow.. I suppose the best way to look at it is the worst is over!

Woke up from sleep and tasted blood.

Looks like the clots were bleeding.
Is this still normal looking?

I didn't use gauze cause when I went to check it seemed to be more salvia blood then actual blood at that point.

Scared to sleep now in case I do more damage or something 😩
Should I have still used gauze..

So this is my first teeth extraction since i was young , so I have no idea of what the healing and allI would be like..

Is this a normal looking extraction sites?
And also I still feel numb or that kind of sensation around my chin , would be this be common...I'm putting it down to the swelling and also the depth of the roots that were there.

The First picture shows normal clotting, saliva tends to wash the top of the clot away and you get that sort of runny blood appearance.
Second photo, everything looks good. The slight numbness is probably associated with the pushing and shoving to get the roots out.

Thanks Gordon
I'm alternating with advil and solpadine today , as I'm very very sore. Also doing salt rinse after meals. But pains probably to be expected the roots were so stubborn, thank god the worst is over.

Is the tooth next to the attraction normal to hurt, my upper teeth sometimes clash with it and it gives me an ouch! I presume is it part of the course of extraction and healing?

grey tissue is granulation tissue, covered on here about a million times. It's a good thing.
