Does this look right?

Hi so a week ago i had a wisdom tooth removed, it was impacted on the jaw bone and as such i have had bone removed also.

I have five stitches for one tooth.

I went back, had my tooth packed and was given a 3 day course of Metronidazole; 900mg per day (3 x 200mg doses)

The majority of the pain is gone, my face is tender and very sensitive.

When looking at the site despite my stitches still being in place there is a black hole?

Why is there a hole at all? And why is it black?

Sorry the picture doesn't show it very well. But it is like most of the other black holes in relation to wisdom teeth, though non of the others i have come across have so many stitches, if any at all, surely the stitches should prevent a hole?

The hol will disappear by time. Sometimes the healing wound can cause different complaints after the operation. It can be helpful moving the nearly muscles several times, it can boost the circulation of blood and helps the full recovery.

What the gum is like outside the extraction site really tells us nothing. The important thing is whether the blood clot is intact in the socket. This is what will gradually turn to bone as healing progresses. There is no one who can evaluate it except for a dentist, and photos like these tell us nothing. Return to your treating dentist if you have any doubts about healing.
