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

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

Seeing Is Believing: The blood clot covers the extraction site and allows the area to heal. Eat soft food and be careful not to dislodge the blood clot when brushing near the area for 3-4 days. Avoid sucking through straws and stuff, spitting, rinsing your mouth (24h) and blowing your nose is strongly recommended. ...Read more

Wisdom tooth removed the other day and just spat out blood clot. Is this bad?

Depends: Just because you spat out a some clotted blood does not mean you will have complications. Most cases get progressively better after 72 hours. However, if you experience an increase in pain, and the area throbs and is not helped with pain medication, you probably have developed 'dry socket'. See your surgeon immediately so he/she can place some medication in the socket to relieve the pain. ...Read more
