Wisdom teeth pulled a few hours ago...bleeding won't stop (please help)

I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled and it's been about four hours and it's still bleeding pretty badly. I'm biting on those cotton things but they're not really helping that much. Is this bleeding normal? When will it stop? How can I help make it stop?

This is making me really uncomfortable so I could really use some help from you guys right now.

Keep using the cotton things. Make sure you're putting pressure on them and for at least 30 minutes.

It took me a couple of days before the bleeding really stopped.

You have to pack the hole with the cotton and change it periodically. You'll be swallowing blood for days...nothing you can do about it.

To stop the blood, the cotton has to be right in the hole, and you bite down for the pressure. Bleah, bad memories....

Oh, man. I gotta get my wisdom teeth taken out July 19th..all four of them too.

I hate hearing about it...Every time I hear someone saying something bad about it, it makes me want to just not go. Then again, I know that if I don't go, it will cause bigger problems later in life.

urgh. I hate wisdom teeth...

Normal, now pop a couple of those pills they gave you and you wont worry about that any more.

I have to say one thing though getting put to sleep is more fun than I thought it would be. I didn't even realize when I fell asleep and when I woke up I felt pretty damn good and then the numbness went away...

If you're still bleeding now chances are it'll continue for at least a day. And I'd make sure you have an ample supply of powerful painkillers.

Atleast you're not waking up choking on something else.

And as long as you haven't ripped your stitches out, that's all you can do.

You guys got painkillers? All I received was Tylenol 1's. What a rip-off.

Luckily for me I my bleeding stopped very quickly and I was able to go out and do stuff the next night. I had all four taken out about 2 years ago too.

Don't stress about it.

Completely depends on the person and the way the teeth are in.

I had 3 impacted, and all four out on a Tuesday... Thursday night I was out drinking a beer and watching a playoff game, and by Saturday me and a buddy were BBQ'ing and drinking far too much beer.

Yeah, I've heard many things.

I actually can't wait to be put to sleep, I've never had it done.

They give you stitches, though...and I know you can get the ones that eventually dissolve. How does that work out, or can you not get the dissolving ones for this?

They might not stitch you up. I think it depends on how your paying Medicare or cash.

I ended up pulling my own stitches out on day 3, they were annoying me. I was really lucky to have the surgery/recovery run so smoothly. But I've always heard horror stories that need to get the holes packed and crap. ugh.

Oh, I'm really horrified about that dry socket crap.

Yeah possibly dry sockets, I'd give your dentist a call tomorrow maybe and ask him/her about it (or have someone else call for you)

hilliardsw55> This'll cheer ya up...when I got mine pulled all I got was some NO2 and some novacaine and as my dentist was pulling one of teeth out, the tooth shattered, it made this horrible sound of bones braking, I think my dentist almost burst into tears when he saw the expression on my face.

Trust me getting teeth pulled is nothing compared to having a tooth put BACK IN. Yes I'm talking about pushing a full tooth (root and all) back into place after it had been out for a few hours. Boy that was fun.

Mine bled pretty good for the first day/night, but then next morning it was pretty good. And my teeth were pretty big suckers too.

I don't remember having a bleeding problem. I went home and everything seemed to be normal. When I woke up the next morning, I looked like the Elephant Man. The left side of my mouth somehow got infected. I had to go on some heavy duty antibiotics and then because there was concern that my throat was going to swell shut, I had to go back to the doctor. They had to slit the inside of my left cheek and suck out all this fluid (it was only local, so even though I didn't feel any pain, I could hear it and see it). I ended up not be able to eat solid food for almost a month. That was over 20 years ago, but I still remember it like it was yesterday.
