Having suffered dental phobia for many years, and ultimately avoiding the dentist because of it this left my oral health very very poor... I recently managed to finally confront this and arranged for the dental work to be done under sedation (unfortunately this is going to take multiple trips to the dentist and i have just had the second treastment today...)

Today i had the lower right side tooth (the on right before wisdom tooth? not sure of the number or name sorry)

Following this i am not seeing any clotting at all in the extraction site (10 hours from the extraction) Should i be worried or is this normal? The last procedure i had was an upper wisdom removal so i could not notice this to be paranoid about it if this is the case.

Also - I am noticing a substantial pain in the wisdom tooth nearest the extraction site its a very dull pain however if i clench my wisdom teeth on that side it becomes alot more severe, is this normal too?

Thanks for all your help.

If you are concerned talk to your dentist.
What I would do is wait a little bit and see if the pain goes away in 2 days or gets worst . More then 4to 5days I would call its just my suggestion only a dentist knows the scope of it

Going along with what everyone else said, even though you don't like going to the dentist you will probably have to see them to see how it's healing up. I would suggest calling first and explaining the whole thing over the phone and seeing what the dentist has to say.
