A question about healing process from wisdom tooth.

Hey there, I've recently taken out my wisdom tooth, (this is day 2) and took a picture of it. It was white, and im wondering if thats what it is supposed to look like. Lastly, there is a pimple-like structure to where the doctor injected the local anesthesia, is that normal? (PS I've attached a photo of what my inside mouth looks like atm, sorry if it's graphic.)

From the picture, everything looks like it is healing well. If you are not already, start rinsing with warm salt water 2-3 times daily. This is very therapeutic to the tissues and will help keep the area free from debris. The structure you are speaking of near the injection site is more than likely a salivary glad or an irritation from the injection. If it does not resolve on its own within the next 3-5 days, it would be a good idea to have the treating dentist re-examine the area.
