Hi, I just got all four wisdom teeth extracted a week and 1 day ago. I went for a check up yesterday and everything looked fine and normal including the flappy gum but last night while I was sleeping, I coughed and felt the slit rip down towards where my wisdom tooth used to be. There is no bleeding but its bothering me because I feel it and I dont want it ripping where the wisdom tooth was and I dont like looking at it because that kind of stuff freaks me out especially when im cleaning it.

  • If there is no pain and swelling and there is no bleeding then you do not have to worry. Maintain good oral hygiene and keep doing warm saline rinses. It takes around 3 weeks for the complete healing.
