Unhappy Bleeding wisdom tooth?

One of my wisdom teeth just started emerging recently (bottom right next to last molar) and tonight I felt it with my tongue and it started bleeding a bit. It just looks like my gum is raised right exactly next to my last molar, I can't actually make out a tooth. Is the bleeding normal? Should I see a dentist? I do not wish to have any of my wisdom teeth pulled unless it is absolutely necessary.

Thanx.

Re: Bleeding wisdom tooth?

Well, a lot of us live in the US and don't read the board while sleeping.

A raised spot on the gum is a normal sign of a wisdom tooth about to erupt. A little bit of bleeding and some pain is also normal. Stick an ice cube up there to numb it if you want to. If you find yourself in a LOT of pain, go to the dentist.

If the tooth tries to come in, maybe a little bit breaks out of the gum, and then it stops, that usually means it's stuck and there isn't enough room for it to come in properly. That's called impacted, and if it's impacted, it'll probably need to be removed sooner or later, but there's usually no hurry.

I had all mine removed, because they were all impacted. It wasn't a big deal. They'd been hurting on and off since they first came in, and it was a relief to be rid of them.

janewhite1:

That crossed my mind, but I noticed it had had 111 views but 0 replies.

But anyway, I appreciate your response, and am relieved to hear that a little bit of bleeding is normal. Quite frankly, I was a little freaked out by it. I've never had any dental problems before. Hopefully none of mine will be impacted, but they probably will be, because I really don't have the room for any more teeth.

Regards, Lora
