Blood clot with wisdom tooth

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. My dr did stitch the bottom one with two stitches is this something to worry abut i

It may still be trauma from the tooth extraction or you may have an infection and may need an antibiotic.

Telephone your dentist who took the tooth to make an urgent appointment to see him.

I'm in soooo much pain. I had my completed packed wisdom tooth removed on Sept. 24 and I'm still experiencing major swelling and neck pain. I can't even open my mouth to put anything in. I'm missing days at work and I'm worried about losing my job, but I'm in pain. I can't do anything. Neck swollen, ear aching, and each time I turn my head, it hurts. Is this normal?

When do you get the stitches taken out?

I can't remember how my bottom wisdom teeth holes (they too were stitched) looked when they were healing.  But I do remember getting rice grains stuck in them when the stitches were taken out.

But I would say as long as there is no continued bleeding, and there is no pulsating pain, you should be fine.  The yellowish film may be a scab.

If you do feel more pain and sensations of throbbing, then do see the dentist straight away as this could be an infection.

Gargle with salty water.
