Hi yall, I had wisdom tooth #32 bottom right removed, it has been a little over 48 hours. It stopped bleeding for awhile, and just today started oozing blood again. I know the healing greyish/white tissues have started to cover it... It was sutured, so should it still be bleeding a bit? my swelling has already gone down some, and I am not having horrible pain, just pressure. Also, should it feel like i'm biting mu cheek? thanks.

Hi wisdomtootheek,

if you take a look around there should be some threads about how long a bleeding can last, trying to remember what I had read here it's very individual thing, 48 hours sound ok. Also a lot of the bleeding you see will just be saliva with a bit of blood so don't worry. As usually, if you wish to know it exactly, give your practice a call, they should be used to answer this type of questions on the phone.

All the best wishes
