Smile stitches after tooth extraction

I had a molar pulled a few days ago and had disolvable stitches. I notice that I have a serics of white bumps where the tooth was. Could that be the stitches or an infection? I am on antibiotics so if it is an infection would the antibiotics take care of it?

It could be the stitches or pieces of tissue or even left over root from the tooth. Give it some time it will most likely go away. If not go back to the Dentist.
