I have snake eyes pericing and it has a blood clot under the tongue what am I suppose to do?

Will likely resolve: Not sure how long ago you had the piercing done, but most likely the clot will resolve itself in a week or two. The tongue is a very vascular structure (has good blood supply) and can bleed quite a bit when injured. But also because of this good blood supply, injury to the tongue often heals quite well, and rather quickly. So, if after 2 wks and the clot is not any better, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

How long should a blood clot stay in your mouth after wisdom tooth surgery before falling out?

Forever: The blood clot should never fall out. This is true for any blood clot anywhere in the body. The blood clot will slowly change into the type of tissues needed for healing & repair; in the case of a tooth extraction, it will change into new bone & gum. If you lose the clot, healing with be impaired and delayed. So, don't disturb it, and allow it time to heal. Unfortunately, it is lost sometimes. ...Read more

Yes: 5 days after oral surgery is plenty of time for healing to occur enough to not have bleeding with simply swishing salt water around. Eating, even soft items like jello, is more traumatic that gently swishing water around. Any blood clot that is dislodged at this point is fine as long as active bleeding doesn't develop. Follow your oral surgeon's instructions and call the surgeon's office to check. ...Read more
