Ok so it is erm 2 weeks and 3 days since I had it taken out and thank god it no longer hurts apart from the odd twinge here and there.
Now according to the dentist the tooth was huge, alot bigger than a wisdom tooth normally is, and also it was sort of coming out of the side and the bottom of my gum, if that makes sense.
So, the bit of the hole on my tongue side has started to heal, but what I am worried about is that the rest of the hole thats on the side seems to not be closing up and the gum surrounding it is very soft. It isn't sore, unless i poke it alot
I don't have some weird gum eating disease do I ?? (only half joking).
By "not closing up" do you mean it is still raw, or that there's a pit? I had quite a big pit left after one tooth was removed, but by 2 weeks in, I would expect it not to still be a raw wound IYSWIM? The pit did gradually get shallower...
Mine was certainly slow - though I'd had an infection in the tooth which I think made it worse (I had 3 out, but the others didn't seem to leave as big a gap). I think as long as it seems to be improving over time, and you don't think there's any infection, then I'd probably not worry about it. Not tasting blood is certainly a good sign!
