Bleeding 6 days wisdom teeth post-op
Hi everyone, if anyone knows anything about tooth removal or has had their wisdom teeth removed please read!
I had 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed on Monday (today's Sunday), and haven't had any huge problems up until now. I've done everything I'm supposed to! There was some bleeding, but that stopped a few days ago. However, last night I was looking at my mouth and I noticed where one of my bottom teeth was removed, the blood clot was gone. I have stitches, so it wasn't the full socket, but there was still a portion where I think I might have been able to see down to the bone. I know from searching around the internet that that's not a good sign... the beginnings of dry socket possibly. I thought it might resolve itself, so I went to bed, and woke up early this morning with a LOT of blood coming from that tooth. It looks like the blood clot re-formed, which I think is a good thing (well, better than dry socket). Buuut it's still pretty unpleasant and this what I want to be happening...
Has this happened to anyone? If it has, did it resolve on its own?
Should I treat this particular wound like it's the first day, now that there's a new clot (no straws, spitting, etc...)?
I'd appreciate the help! It's 7:00 on a Sunday morning so I'm not sure I can get ahold of my dentist anytime soon.
