I will check out the picture in about 6 years.
It may take me that long to get my DDS.

In the meantime.....contact your professional and have them check it out.

I can't contact my dentist cause I did this in an emergency room, I'm on a vacation:/
Just wanna check if my socket is normal cause it's my first tooth extraction.
It doesn't hurt me or swollen at all..
I just don't know what this blackish thing in my socket is.
But it's starting to go away and start getting light red like the guy say in the first comment.

This.

This is a subtle way of saying that you should ask your doctor rather than a bunch of random people on the internet. The internet is dangerous and you risk getting bad advice. You usually end up with things like "my brother's dad's dog's veterinarian's uncle said he put motor oil on it and it fixed it." One of the reasons I like City Data is that it is unfortunately amusing and full of this stuff.

If it was done in an ER, then you should have some type of follow-up information on your discharge paperwork including a way to contact someone in case of problems. Do you remember the doctor that did the extraction? Google his/her name and call the office. This is one of several reasons I don't pull teeth in the ER.

Lastly, is this simply Surgicel packed into the socket to control bleeding? Surgicel looks really strange for about a 2 weeks before it dissolves.
