This is my 14today after removal of my wisdom tooth on right side lower. I had pain and little bit of swelling for 3 days and subsided after that. My question: I can see the hole .and I am scared of it going into a dry socket. How long will the hole heal and disappear.

If you do not have pain. No problem. It will heal in 3 months completely. Maintenance is mandatory. Keep good oral hygiene. Tnx.
