Hi Doctor, Over a year ago, when my wisdom tooth was growing, I saw that one of my teeth was darkening. Now, a year passed, I still have that tooth black on one side. Although, the tooth doesn't hurt, my dents are bleeding almost everyday. Even a slight touch to my dents can cause bleeding. Today I was checking my tooth after brush and noticed that my dark tooth was bleeding more than others. I have not visited any dentist for 2-3 years. After reading some of your posts online, I've found out that I might have a serious tooth problem. Doctor, do you think that I can save my tooth (the dark one)? Or, should I see a dentist asap? Please give me some advice. I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

  • You have not mentioned whether you have removed the pressure gauge or not. If the bleeding is there after removal of pressure gauge then take a sterlised gause piece and give pressure pack. You can also use iced tea bag. They help in stopping the bleeding. Bleeding after extraction of 3 teeth is normal. You can sip something cold but donot use straw and donot rinse the mouth vigoursly. Sometimes hypertensive patients bleed more.

  • It is better you see the dentist as the black tooth can be because of decay and that can be restored if it is not paining but only dentist can do it. more so ever you are having bleeding gums that means you need cleaning of teeth . So if yo really want to take care of the teeth and want to save them then you should visit the dentist.
