hello i've had my premolar e tracted 15 hrs ago.. i've slept with a gauze for 8hrs after 7 hrs of tooth extraction. my problem now is when i removed the gauze this morning i saw a white thing covering the socket.. i don't have any idea what is it... is it possible that i have accidentally removed the blood clot when i took out the gauze... please advise... thanks.

  • No, the white thing on the gauge can not be the clot as clot is reddish brown in colour . The white thing can be the biofilm which starts forming on the teeth. Try to maintain good oral hygeine and follow all the instructions given by your dentist. for more info on tooth extraction you can visit the following lnk....http://www.identalhub.com/dental-complications-after-tooth-extraction-881.aspx
