I have had lower impacted wisdom tooth removal days back. My wound is oozing from last 2 days. My oral surgeon did the dressing and gave me a tablet to stop bleeding. In next 24 hrs if the bleeding /oozing doesn't stop, she is going to reopen the sutures and fill bone wax and stich again. I am dead scared please recommend.

  • oozing of the blood from the extraction socket for 2 to 3 days is normal if you do not have any bleeding disorder or hypertension. If the bleeding does not stop then you dentist has to open the socket again and after cleaning it and doing the needful it has to be resutured. There is nothing to be scared as the procedure is done under local anesthesia and it is not painful. for more info on complications after tooth extraction you can read this article in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-complications-after-tooth-extraction-881.aspx
