If you got sticthes after wisdom teeth surgery, can you still see the blood clots ?

Sometimes: If the stitches can pull the gums on either side of the extraction site completely together, so that the "hole" is completely covered, then you will not be able to see anything underneath the gums.

What does an extraction blood clot and a dry socket look like? I see white in my socket with a slight pain. Should I be worried?

If not the same day as the extraction, lightly rinse with salt water. if after the rinse there is something mushy in the site, whether red or white, it is likely healing. If there is a deep hole with nothing inside, you might have a dry socket. The white down deep may be the bone. A dull ache is common in healing, but dry socket is usually more intense. ...Read more
