Unhappy OOZING FROM WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION SITE

I just wanted to know if anyone had the same problem I'm having. I had all four wisdom teeth removed almost 3 weeks ago & I seem to be almost healed from it, but last night I noticed white stuff comming out of a little tiny hole right next to the extraction site just on my bottom two. It's not a lot, but enough to make you start to panic. I'm not having any pain except on my other teeth around the area, they are just sore feeling. Does anyone know what this could be?

Occassionally if there is any oozing from the extractions site, a substance called bone wax is applied.

It is a white, waxy substance.

You may want to check with your dentist just to be sure.
