Do I have an oral infection? I had all four wisdom teeth removed. I now have a white and brown pus where one of my wisdom teeth were.

In brief: Sometimes

Sometimes material that looks brown can just be some blood and tissue.
If you have actual pus, i recommend that you contact you dentist, as you may have developed an infectionat that site.

In brief: Please

Please follow up with your dentist.
Sometimes a fragment of the root of the wisdom tooth may be left behind and infection can occur. Be safe and have it checked out. Best wishes.
