Why is my gum sensitive even after 20 days of tooth extraction? How long should i wait for it to heal completely?

If i floss with water the empty gum is badly sensitive especially to cold water. 20 days have passed i have extracted the tooth from dentist. I checked it in the mirror there doesnt seem to be a dry socket. It looks healed but there is a thread like thing tangling from the gum. I long should i wait for healing? Bcoz i dont want to waste my time and money simply visiting a dentist soon. I want to go only at the right time

    Did you have stitches ? that could be the thread thing, if so gently pull it out. Rinse with a medicated mouthwash diluted in warm water, that will help it heal.
