Blood clot fell out after third day of tooth extraction?
Blood clot fell out after third day of tooth extraction? I had my teeth extracted thursday and when i went to sleep saturday night everything was ok
when i woke up today the clot was not on top of my bottom tooth anymore
it was still in my mouth though, as i found out when i went to the bathroom
I am really scared of dry socket, i really don't want to get that
is it normal after the 3rd day for it to come out? it looks just like the top tooth it's still reddish where the tooth used to be
am i gonna be okay like this? or do i have a risk of getting dry socket?
i should have fallen asleep, i move a lot during sleep, so maybe it is my fault :/
there's no pain or anything
and should i just throw the blot clot out? or try to put it back on top of my tooth socket?
Throw that away. If it had stayed in your mouth it would have tasted disgusting and made your breath stink. The blood clot is dead matter, rotting in your mouth.
First of all, don't panic. Second of all, call your dentist first thing Monday morning, unless they have a 24/7 phone line.
Clots come out at different times for different people. Just keep doing what the dentist instructed, and again, call them.
My 5 year old's clot disappeared yesterday and he had a tooth extracted Wednesday.
ADD: Don't keep the clot, it's just old blood, discard it
Just be sure not to get any food stuck in the socket, don't suck on anything, and keep your mouth clean.
First of all get rid of the clot, it won't help once it's fell out. Not everyone who has teeth extracted will develop dry socket, but you are very high risk due to the clot coming out.
If your not in pain right now, then no worries. If you start to experience pain try taking some ibuprofen 800mg, this will help with any inflammation. You can apply a few drops of clover oil. This is the same thing that the dentist will be packing the hole with.
If the pains just to much to handle (it can be horrible) you may need to visit your local ER or urgent care center. They will be able to give you prescription pain meds and possible pack the extraction hole. This will get you by until you call your dentist on Monday.
GOOD LUCK and I hope you stay pain free!!
I removed my wisdom tooth few time ago, and my dentist recommended to DO NOT remove the clot, because your gum and sockets will heal WITH the clot and under the clot. The typical dry socket produces a dull pain that doesn't appear until three or four days after the tooth has been extracted.
What MAYBE happened with you is that an external part of clot felt down - considering that you had no pain. Don't try touch or put anything at the site where you removed your tooth, let your body heal. If you try, great chances to get an infection and dry sockets. If you have any problems, better make a checkup at dentist before get something worse!
