I had my wisdom teeth removed and the dentist accidentally sewed my tongue to my gums. Is this a medical emergency? Do I need to go the er?

See dentist in AM. Call the dentist first thing in the morning and make sure they see you to address this concern. In 23 years of practice I have never heard of this happening. It is possible that it just feels like your tongue is sutured to the gums because things are probably swollen. Regardless you should have your dentist reevaluate you.
Perceptual illusion. Because of the proximity of the tongue and post surgery numbness and swelling some patients believe that the surgeon sewed their tongue or cheek to the extraction site. It is not an emergency, but visit to your dentist for post-op appointment to address your concerns is warranted. Take care.
What to do. Contact the dentist and have him\her evaluate what you feel and see. It may feel like your tongue is sewn to your gums but is unlikely. This is not a medical emergency but should be evaluated within the next 24 hours. ER's of hospitals do not generally have dentists present who are better trained to evaluate dental issues.
Call ur dentist. Sutures are not "accidentally" placed, but rather positioned to close a wound. You may feel awkward in that area due to the minor surgery, but i can assure you there was no accident, and there is no emergency. Even if you went to er, they are not going to undo the surgeon's sutures. Pain? Swelling? If nothing major, call the surgeon in the morning.
See your dentist . See your dentist asap. Should not be a problem but needs to be evaluated and addressed accordingly.

Wareham, . Wareham, it can happen, usually it is a boney spicule. A piece of bone that flakes off as the jaw remodels and works its way up through the gums till it is poking out and causing irritation and annoyance. Have your dentist/oral surgeon take a look, if correct it will take two minutes to remove usually with a little topical anesthetic. Hope this is helpful, michael i.

I . I concur with both of the previous two answers. This can be a typical by product of the removal of the wisdom teeth, that can be easily resolved with a follow up visit to the doctor that performed the extractions. Small fragments of bone and/or tooth can work there way out of the gums. This process may occur days to even years later. Read more...
What . What you call "bone coming thru" may be be a piece of bone or actually a fragment of the original tooth. If it is bone, the gum may eventually grow over it and it may heal properly. However, it is more likely that it will not heal properly or may cause further problems later on. This can probably be quickly and easily be remedied by a visit to your dentist. Please set up an appointment with your dentist to evaluate and remedy your problem. Read more...
It . It sounds to me as if you have a boney sequestrum. This is an area of bone that was beside your wisdom tooth which now has died. The body is trying to throw is of, but the process of isolating the bone which is hard takes a long time, and it is still attached to living bone deeper down. You should go back and see the surgeon who removed the tooth and ask him to evaluate it and take care of it for you. This is normal, but it does occur. You should be aware that is is not something hat was done incorrectly, it is just a complication that sometimes occurs. Dr neil mcleod dds dentistry that lasts - quality that counts. Read more...
