As mentioned in a previous post, I recently had my wisdom teeth extracted. About a day and a half ago, I noticed a "bad" taste in my mouth. Today I actually looked at the holes, and they are oozing yellow pus. The holes do *not* hurt, they only ache slightly, which is to be expected. However, what if they are infected? My parents tell me just to wait to speak to the surgeon. What should I do?
On Monday morning call the surgeon's office and ask them if this oozing is anything to be concerned about. A nurse or assistant in that office should know this answer. I'm afraid I don't know if this is 'normal', but I don't particularly like the sound of it and a simple phone call should get you an answer.
