Wisdom Teeth Removal Blood Clot
Is it okay to eat after wisdom teeth removal with the blood clots still on? I can still see the blood clots in my mouth where the surgical extraction happened.
Yes: Maintaining an adequate nutrition following any surgery is important. If you are taking pain medication, it is important to have something in your stomach before taking the pain med to decrease the risk of nausea. Start with a soft diet, drink liquids, and advance your diet as tolerated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The clots do not: Need to be over-abundant & be protruding or visible on the top of the extraction socket. There are more than likely blood clots at the base of the sockets & everything is completely fine. Avoid straws, smoking, vigorous rinsing & forceful expectoration. Always inform your doctor if concerned and ask. A good treatment team will always be receptive to any questions to help put patiets at ease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and no: After your tooth is removed the clot will form in the socket. This will usually dissolve (lyse) over time sort of like how a scab comes off after you have a cut or abrasion of your skin. If the socket isn't open for the lysed clot to come out the body can resorb some of the clot, but usually as the clot breaks down it leaks out of the socket. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After wisdom teeth removal a week ago, i began bleeding and spat out a large-ish blood clot. I am soaking through gaze. Should i be worried?
Post op bleeding: Bleeding should be substantially controlled within the first hour or two, and certainly by the next day. It's common to have some slight temporary bleeding when the wound site is irritated from tongue, food, brushing or flossing during the first week. Anything more than that should be discussed with the dentist who removed the tooth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Strange yellow thing that appeared on top of blood clot after wisdom teeth removal. What could this be?
Foreign object?: One possibility is a piece of food such as a kernel of corn fragment has become embedded in the top of the clot. If the extraction was performed more than 3 or 4 days ago, it should be safe to carefully lift the fragment off with tweezers or go back to let the dentist look at it if you aren't comfortable with tweezers or if the extraction was more recent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I just had my wisdom teeth extracted, and one of the socket's blood clot is abnormally large; larger than the adjoining tooth in fact. Should i worry?
No: As long as you don't continue to get oozing of blood and the clot continues to grow in size. All questions should be directed to the dentist who actually extracted your wisdom teeth. Call and explain the situation and ask if you need to be seen for this as well as when he\she would like to see you next. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
