How long do I need to worry about a clot becoming dislodged after tooth being pulled?

How long do I need to worry about a clot becoming dislodged after tooth being pulled?

24 hours: I normally tell my pt. The first 24 hrs are critical to keep clot in socket. No rinsing, spitting, swishing, sucking thru straw, smoking, and drinking hot liquids for 24 hrs. Avoid using that side. This gives time for the healing to start. You need to be careful but can function close to normal. Gums and bone take some time to heal and close. ...Read more

How to know if I have sinus perforation or are my wisdom tooth clots dissolving?

See your dentist: It is possible for a sinus to be exposed while removing an upper wisdom tooth due to the position of the roots that protrude into the sinus cavity. If that had happened, you will feel more pain than usual and will notice air and fluids entering the sinus when you suck in through your nose. This can be very dangerous. Contact the surgeon/dentist that did the extractions immediately. ...Read more

Hi. I had my UPPER #13 tooth extracted 3 days ago. I can not see a clot. Is it way up in the hole? Terrified of dry socket!!! Thank you.

Dry socket?: I can't see your extraction site either. As long as the post-surgical pain is abating, and there's no bad smell or taste, you should be OK. If you're still worried, call your surgeon for a post-surgical reevaluation. You already paid him/her for your treatment, go back to make sure everything's healing well. ...Read more

Tooth extracted 3 days ago. Seems like my clot is sinking in. Is this normal? I'm still in pain, but I don't think it's dry socket, which is my worry.

Tooth extracted 3 days ago. Seems like my clot is sinking in. Is this normal? I'm still in pain, but I don't think it's dry socket, which is my worry.

Retraction: Is a common finding but pain after 3 days typically isn't unless it was a complex surgical extraction. Go back to the treating dentist for an evaluation but also make sure there is no food impacted in the extraction socket. Gentle rinsing with warm salt water should be ok after 3 days. If the pain persists, it may be a dry socket. ...Read more
