I have throbbing and the taste of blood in my mouth two days after my wisdom tooth extraction. The site is not oozing blood, however. Is this normal?

It is normal: Bleeding will occur after surgery, and it is not uncommon to ooze blood for 24-72 hours after wisdom teeth removal. A lot of the time it looks like there is more blood than there actually is due to the saliva mixing with the blood. Avoid the vigorous mouth rinsing or touching the wound area. ...Read more

I had a tooth pulled today. I now have a large blood bubble where it was pulled it is pressing against my gum and has enclosed the tooth beside it.

I had a tooth pulled today. I now have a large blood bubble where it was pulled it is pressing against my gum and has enclosed the tooth beside it.

Bleeding after tooth: Extraction. A certain amount of bleeding is to be expected following surgery. Slight bleeding, oozing, or redness in the saliva is not uncommon. Excessive bleeding may be controlled by first rinsing or wiping any old clots from your mouth, then placing a gauze pad over the area and biting firmly for 30 minutes. This will stop the bleeding and remove the blood bubble. If concerned call the surgeon. ...Read more

How long does it take for a blood clot to form after getting a tooth pulled?

Minutes: A healthy adult should form a clot within minutes after a tooth has been extracted. If the patient is on medication such as Aspirin or other blood thinners, the clot may take longer to form. The patient should contact their dentist if bleeding doesn't stop and no clot is formed. ...Read more

I had a tooth pulled and they cut an artery I got hospitalized and wanted to know after affect of loosing alot of blood?

I'm sorry: To hear of your trouble. Fortunately your body is making new blood all the time and will soon replace what you lost.
I don't know the details, but I imagine the tooth was giving you trouble - pain or infection or both - so there was no choice but to get it out.
I hope you have a swift and pleasant recovery. ...Read more

Had wisdom tooth pulled on Monday and today is Wednesday and it’s still bleeding/oozing. Obviously not like the first day. Is this normal?

See the dentist.: It is atypical that you would be bleeding/ oozing after 48 hours. Certainly, there are actions that could bring this about like smoking, drinking through a straw, or drinking hot liquids as well as vigorous exercise. If none of these have taken place, I would recommend seeing the dentist/ surgeon that removed the tooth to evaluate the area. ...Read more

I had a tooth pulled 6 days ago and the blood clot fell out yesterday. It doesn't hurt it is just feels like a an awkward hole but it kinda has a odor?

I had a tooth pulled 6 days ago and the blood clot fell out yesterday. It doesn't hurt it is just feels like a an awkward hole but it kinda has a odor?

Sounds normal: If there is no pain, everything is probably fine. The odor is normal because the blood clot has a smell, and food debris tends to get stuck in there. The hole will go away slowly over several weeks to months. Sounds like the normal healing process is occurring. If you have any questions, see your dentist. ...Read more

I went to the dentist to pull out a wisdom tooth and fainted afterwards. My dentist is worried I might have low blood sugar. How can I find out?

I went to the dentist to pull out a wisdom tooth and fainted afterwards. My dentist is worried I might have low blood sugar. How can I find out?

May be other things: Fainting at the dentist's office is the time honored way of telling him how much you respect the power of the drill! Checking your blood sugar is as simple as going to your doctor's office and asking for the test though I'll betcha it's been done. If your sugar were low & if that were the ONLY cause of the faint I'd say maybe you didn't eat a proper breakfast or lunch? Good luck- Tap! Tap! ...Read more

I had a tooth pulled 3 days ago and the blood clot is about to fall out what do I need to do? Its friday evening so I can't see a dentist until monday

Perhaps still OK: My office is open on saturdays as are many offices. You might want to see another dentist just to be sure. Without seeing a dentist there is not much that you can do on your own. Just because you think or see the clot about ready to fall out, does not mean that it will or that there is not some clotting still present underneath. You may be just fine. ...Read more

The day after I had my wisdom teeth pulled a huge dark blood clot formed from the one wisdom tooth covering my teeth to the front?

Acute Bleeding: Or brb (bright red blood) is a sign of fresh and continuous bleeding. Darker blood is "older blood" and clotted blood. Blood can have a variety of shades, darker blood is de-oxygenated and "older blood". Utilize gauze with biting pressure for an hour and change as needed.

Why when I get any surgery teeth pulled or blood taken out I get peal and I get dizziness and I feel like im going to faint.

It's a reflex: This response is known as vasovagal syncope and is an autonomic reflex. It occurs because, in the presence of extreme fear, your brain exerts so much energy that it needs more blood, and your heart can't meet those demands, so your blood pressure drops and the brain gets less oxygen, which makes you feel faint. When this starts to happen, take slow deep breaths. ...Read more

Blood pressure at times has been around 96/60. I'm scheduled to have 5 teeth pulled. Should I delay that because of my blood pressure being low?

Can I still pull the blood clot out 5 days after wisdom teeth extraction? What will a healthy extraction look like at this point?

Can I still pull the blood clot out 5 days after wisdom teeth extraction? What will a healthy extraction look like at this point?

Be careful: Even though you may have no more pain or bleeding it does not mean you will not have any other complications. Normally you should be fine, it will take a couple of month until the tissue re-epethelialize and fill the socket completely to look normal again. If in doubt talk back to your dentist. ...Read more

I had my two upper wisdom teeth pulled 2 days ago and I just felt like a pop on the one. Does that mean I lost the blood clot and will have dry socket?

I had my two upper wisdom teeth pulled 2 days ago and I just felt like a pop on the one. Does that mean I lost the blood clot and will have dry socket?

Dry socket: A common sign of a dry socket is when you breath in with your mouth open you feel the cold air and a deep pain in the extraction site. Could it have been your jaw that popped? The TMJ joint often makes a popping or clicking sound when you open real wide, especialy after having your mouth cranked open for a long surgery such as extractions. If any pain or concern see the dr. Who did the extract. ...Read more
