Re: What does a dry socket look like?
You don't have a dry socket. If you did have a dry socket, you would be in severe pain.
What most likely happened is, just the surface portion of the blood clot came off. There is still enough of the blood clot and any gum tissue that started to form left so that it is covering the bone tissue underneath.
It's been over a week since the extraction and a good portion of the tissue would already be healing over. You're at most risk of developing a dry socket within the first few days of an extraction.
Since you had a complicated extraction, the hole is probably pretty deep. Rinse the area with a water pic. Brush your teeth, but not too hard in that particular area. Because the hole is deep, it will take a little longer for the gum tissue to fill back in. This is normal. The area still may bleed slightly as it heals. The main thing to remember is not to stick anything in the hole, including your tongue. Rinse gently with a water pic to remove debris, but don't take a tooth pic and try and remove food.
