extraction
what is the yellow coating over the hole of a tooth extraction...would that be an infection or puss pocket or what? my tooth was extracted yesterday and the yellow substance has been there since about 3 hours after extraction and the gum is burning and a knot has formed between my gum and chin bone. The tooth was broke in half and I was given 6 shots to numb but never totally numbed the area. Extraction overall took about an hour...could it be infected now.?



This discussion is related to molar extraction pain.

Do not disturb this as you might get dry socket, and that is painful.  

Instead, follow all the dentist (or oral surgeon's) instructions for cleansing the mouth and call and describe what's going on there.  If it's not right they will want to see you.
