I recently (4 days ago) had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled they were impacted. Now 4 days later, I have a bad taste in my mouth and my tongue is yellow/white. I've been using salt water and brushing my tongue. Also I think my gum is going over my stitches (they are not desolviable) is this normal?

  • If you donot have any pain and swelling then these symptoms are normal. These are normal healing processes. The bad taste is due to food impacted which gets fermented and for this you have to maintain good oral hygiene. Along with warm saline rinses you can use some anti bacterial mouthwash also which will keep the mouth fresh. for more info on do's and don'ts after tooth extraction you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/article_do's-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
