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.

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.

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.

Big blood clot


1. Do not rinse 2. remove the clot with a dry sterile gauze pad. 3. moisten a tea bag and apply gentle pressure by biting down for 45 minutes. 4. Repeat as necessary. 5. Keep your head elevated 6. Limit physical activity. If that doesn't work you will have to call your dentist or oral surgeon.

Depends


Minor oozing of blood for a few hours after wisdom tooth removal is expected. If the coagulum builds up outside of the socket it is not uncommon to experience this. There is concern for the development of a dry socket if the clot is removed from your extraction site. You will likely have a significant increase in pain a couple days after and should see your DR for follow up. The sooner the better.

Dry socket


Most common time for onset of dry socket is 3 to 7 days following surgery. If antibiotics were not prescribed it is also possible to have an infection of the site. Fever might accompany the infection. In either case contact the office you were seen at or your dentist if by a specialist. Either can prescribe antibiotics or place a dressing.

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.

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.

Blood clot


If you are having no pain, keep the area clean and free of debris, as per the post-op instructions from your oral surgeon. If you are having increased or prolonged pain, or if you are concerned about a dry socket ( which causes severe pain), contact your oral surgeon for advice and/or an examination.
