I had my #4 tooth removed just this past Thursday (5/19) and to this day I haven't had any pain or discomfort post op. When I checked the site the following day after, I could see the clot but it was underneath this white stuff to me which looked like white blood cells or something like that. The next day(yesterday) it seemed to be getting smaller. And today it's even smaller. I just don't want it to be infection. I've been rinsing with salt water. Like I said I have no pain either. I went to my dentist the day after and she said this was normal but my biggest fear is a dry socket. Any advice is appreciated!
