Wisdom teeth extraction hole. Is it normal?

On the 6th day after extraction, I decided to get solid food. It kinda hurt but afterwards I noticed that the structures were gone and there’s a hole where the wisdom teeth was removed from the lower left molar. 

I think food got in. I’m not sure but there’s a hole. Is it normal?

(I had the two bottom teeth sewed up but now it’s gone so there’s a hole).

    NORMAL.  What did you expect would happen............remove a tooth and a hole is left.

    Of course it's a hole you had a tooth removed. Rinse after each meal, it can take a few weeks to close over.

    Of course there is a hole. Teeth go way down into the gums.If you get food stuck in the hole, just use a qtip to encourage it out and rinse with mouth wash.If you put too much pressure on it, it may bleed.
