I got my wisdom teeth pulled Friday, something in my mouth got irritated and i had to go to the dentist today. He did something to my mouth, and now when i look at the hole, it looks black. Is this a blood clot or what? It looks really gross...the whole area is just black.

I got dry socket pain it was awful extremely painful. I had all my wisdom teeth taken out but, also other teeth and got the same pain. It can last about a month. It is such a relief when the pain has gone. You may have got something in the whole or he might have put a antiseptic in your teeth which helps the pain. If you are worried go back to your dentist and find out. I feel for you because I remember the pain it was awful. Strong pain killers help and warm salt washes.
