Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth keeps bleeding


Avatar n tn I have a co-worker with a wisdom tooth that is bleeding and I ALSO HAVE a wisdom tooth that is bleeding. Anyways she was telling me about how her wisdom tooth was bleeding and showed me the blood on her finger and she was eating some chips. (I am not sure if she wipe the blood on her shirt or not. But about 5 minutes later I asked her for some chips ( I forgot about the blood on her finger. ) and ate the small bag of chips. My questions is: 1.
Avatar n tn My top right side at the back of my teeth is what seems to be bleeding, and giving out pus. There is no pain. A little uncomfortable feeling under my right jaw line. I have 24 teeth total. There is no wisdom tooth showing or appearing to be coming in. I am almost 22 years old. I have never had a wisdom tooth come in. I'm worried what it may be because i don't see a tooth, i'm thinking the worst that there's a rotten tooth inside my gum. Please someone help.
Avatar m tn I have a wisdom tooth that is completely under the gum. It feels like it has either broken or maybe turned sideways. It has been bleeding a tiny bit but not a lot, can this lead to an infection......serious illness?
Avatar m tn The areas in front of the wisdom tooth should not be bleeding due to the extraction. The bleeding gums would indicate gingivitis or periodontal disease. Are you sure that it may not be just blood coming from the extraction socket? Perhaps flossing between where #17 and #18 meet can be the source of the problem. Its probably not an infection from the wisdom tooth but gingivitis or periodontal disease is essentially a low grade infection that should be treated with a cleaning.
Avatar n tn My wisdom tooth is the one in front of the white patch. My wisdom tooth is pulled to the front from my braces after losing a tooth from a previous accident. Thank you for your help. Btw I just went to the dentist for a clean literally two days ago and dentist said my teeth are fine. Swollen gums started today. http://tinypic.
Avatar f tn I had 2 teeth pulled (top right premolar and wisdom tooth) yesterday in the early evening. Not much pain or bleeding, but the clot from the premolar is quite large (and seems to keep extending!). Its covering about 80% of the tooth beside it and even extending back to the one beside that. I've been a bit scared to even brush those gently as I don't want to dislodge the clot. Is this something to worry about/see my dentist about?
Avatar f tn Also noted, lower left wisdom tooth bleeding excessive. Dentist showed me in mirror. Looked like the wisdom tooth had protruded more through my gum. Still having severe mouth and teeth pain on left side. It was hard for me to pinpoint the source. Dentist sent me to Endodontist for # 14 root canal. (jan 23, 2009) Back to dentist Jan 29, 2009, still pain. Dentist wanted to start over, back to before fillings. Drilled out all three # 15, # 14, #12.
Avatar f tn I had 2 wisdom tooth taken out with a simple extraction just numbing of the area and pulling it out. The top tooths blood clot is visible and looks like it's good the bottom tooth I can't see the blood clot on it all I can see is a yellowish film.
Avatar f tn He did not see anything wrong. But, on physical exam of the wisdom tooth, thought he found crack in tooth, below gumline. He said that's probably why infection keeps coming back, bacteria is constantly getting into gum. So, oral surg Rx'd more Amoxicillin, will Extract in a week. Went fine, with no drugs. He didn't tell me if tooth was in fact cracked, and I did not ask. Check Up- no dry socket, instructed how to rinse area with syringe with Rx rinse.

Avatar f tn I've got a cavity on my wisdom tooth, and I'm starting to feel sensitivity and even slight pain on it. at the moment ive got no health insurance, but will soon, and will also be getting all my wisdom teeth removed when i get insurance. whats strange is that i woke up this morning and felt slight pain in both of my jaws, near the back. one side i can clearly see a cavity, the other side i cant find one for the life of me (using mirrors/flashlights).
Avatar f tn Its safe to get wisdom tooth out when pregnant im ONly 6 week and My tooth is coming out so its very painful is ir safe to take out
Avatar f tn s palsy 20 years ago after a wisdom tooth extraction. Scared the crap out of my neighbor kid when I answered the door. LOL.
Avatar m tn Just had a tooth extraction, removed all of my wisdom teeth. All areas have healed more or less except my bottom right. That area still hasnt healed and gums are beginning to surround my molar (tooth 31)? Also the inner lining of my mouth near my jaw line is a blood red. Is this an infection? Should I seek a dentist out asap?
Avatar n tn also in my lower right part of my mouth. the gum line is slightly teared away from the toth before my wisdom tooth was pulled. it bleeds very lightly but has been bleeding for a week. I don't know what i should do.
Avatar n tn Its hard to say. Did you always have pain in that area? The crown could be producing a food impacting area where the gum tissue is getting irritated. Or the crown could be too "tall" and causing an early contact when you chew down, putting more pressure on the tooth and causing pain. I'm surprised they tried to save your wisdom tooth instead of just removing it.
Avatar m tn s request to pull out my last wisdom tooth, on the upper right side. It is a baby tooth, and was supposed to cause no problems at all. I had been nervous about doing it since it didn't cause problems, but he said I'm prone to cavities, it's hard to floss back there, and it should be a speedy recovery. The extraction was done under local anesthesia and very quickly. It came out whole and only had one root. The hole was tiny. Also, there was little to no swelling.
Avatar n tn The doctors say that I have a swollen tonsil which could be caused by my right wisdom tooth which is incredibly slow at coming out. However my dentists say that the wisdom tooth is fine and minor infection is normal. I have always slept on my stomach and I have always slept quite soon after eating. 6 months ago I read that those are the worst possible things to do so now I always enure that I sleep 3 hours after eating and that I sleep on my back only. However I am still getting the problem.
Avatar f tn This dentist ended up taking out my wisdom tooth because he said the infection was so bad it would be a poor choose to leave it in. So I spent that time terrified and in pain despite him trying his best to give me enough lidocaine. I get home and go back to bed, wake up with my SO, complain to him and get some cuddles. He had to go to work so he gave me $15 and told me to get some really good ice cream for myself while getting my prescription.
Avatar n tn if my x-ray shown i have a cyst forming near my upper left wisdom tooth, should i have it taken out as soon as possible or should i wait until it is fully grown?
Avatar f tn s called) and when I went back he told me I had a really bad infection under the tooth in front of my bottom right wisdom tooth and it would need root canal treatment as the infection is really close to the jaw bone... I had no pain in that tooth but I thought back to a few months prior when I was having painful aches in my jaw, it felt like I couldn't open my mouth and so it made sense... Ok I said do it... but then he went ahead and removed the wisdom tooth behind the infected tooth...
Avatar n tn this was an old wisdom tooth that grew in, in the place of a regular tooth that was previously pulled many years ago. This was on the bottom left. The sight itself does not hurt, but my jaw hurts ONLY when I open my mouth. There is some swelling on the cheek. What is the problem? There is NO PAIN except when I open my mouth....the jaw hurts, or the muscle in the jaw. Is this from the shots the dentist gave me before he extracted the tooth?
Avatar m tn I know that kissing with bleeding gums is not a risk, but was worried due to my unusual situation with biting my lip and the wisdom tooth and the fact that we kissed deeply and a lot. I can't sleep or stop worrying. Was this a risk for HIV or STDs? I also posted the HIV part of the question on the HIV community because I read the two communities prefer that the questions be focused.
