Although you are not yet quite out of the woods with regard to dry socket, the white coating is normal. It is simply the blood clot, which takes on that appearance after the saliva has leached out the red blood cells. The smell is the natural consequence of organic clot material fermenting in a warm, moist environment, which favors putrefaction. This is likewise normal, and will fade as healing proceeds.
^ THIS IS NOT TRUE.
I just got my wisdom teeth out a week ago exactly at one of the best hospitals in the country. I had a partial dry socket which is pretty much just a really deep empty hole where the tooth was, and it was full of white stuff that smelled and tasted unbelievably bad. It was food, not scabs.
The doctor said there should be NO SCABS. Gum tissue is different and heals with fibrous tissue instead of scabbing. Maybe there will be some barely visible white tissue but that is not what you're seeing, you're seeing food that got pushed down there from normal chewing.
You need to clean it out or it's going to prolong healing and could cause infection. He gave me just a syringe with no needle, think like a tiny turkey baster, and told me just to squirt water into the hole until the food flushes out. It's called irrigating it. I use warm salt water because it helps kill bacteria but you can just use plain water if you'd rather.
I second that.
A dry socket is bad. I also used Oral-B mouth rinse for cuts. I have also used a Flavor Injector (needle and syringe type) block one opening and use the other to direct the stream. Be sure to dull the tip (OUCH).
Yes. It is normal.
it is normal if its more then 8 teeth
I just had my wisdom teeth removed and the teeth next to the wound were very sore for about a week and a half.
People dont get their tooth before, 45, so they should avoid hard stuff.
Smoking after tooth extraction can cause this. Get it checked by a dentist.

No, if you are still bleeding 48 hrs after a tooth extraction, consult your dentist. If it is another type of extraction, your question should be more specific.
During this type of extraction, an oral surgeon will cut into the gum line to expose the tooth, from which point the extraction is performed much in the same way as a simple tooth extraction.
