Nose bleeds after wisdom teeth removal



Junior member

It's been one week since I had my wisdoms teeth removed and have experiencing some peculiar things. First, when I breath through my nose I can feel air coming out of the top left extraction site. Second, when I drink water or swish water around I can feel some enter my nose, it doesn't drip out but I can feel it in there. Third I have had 5 or 6 bloody noses since the surgery, some pretty severe. Fourth I've become pretty congested. Fifth I've had some pain in my left ear. These things have been pretty steady and don't seem to be getting any better. I would appreciate any advice you could give. Thanks.

go see an oral surgeon. Don't wait.
you did not mention it but probably your upper wisdom tooth was extracted and due to that the floor of the maxillary sinus is damaged (it is right next to the wisdom tooth roots). An oral surgeon is the righty specialist to treat it. A general practitioner is not.

all the best.
