I recently had a tooth extraction on #31. I developed a blood clot that is currently whitish in color. I am concerned about dry socket so I keep track of the clot. I have only been eating very soft foods but it seems each time I eat, I lose some of the clot. My dentist said this is normal, once the bleeding stops & healing begins, the clot has served its purpose. Do you agree with this? At what day is the blood clot expected to slowly come off? Is it considered normal to lose a part of the clot upon eating, 3rd to 4th day after extraction?
