How long are you suppose to keep the gauze in after 4 wisdom teeth are pulled?
The gauze is there to soak up the excess blood. Basically you only have to keep the gauze in until the bleeding stops - however, you may find it will stop bleeding than may start back up this is normal. If you find excessive bleeding you must have it checked.
You can remove the cotton gauze when the bleeding slows down a lot.
It would be better if you took them out before you eat because then the food particles could get caught in the gauze and that could cause an infection because they aren't clean.
You can pack the site with moist gauze, bite down and then inhale...this will keep the clot in the tooth. You must use moist gauze for each smoke for 3 days, or 8 days for a wisdom tooth. How do I know? I am a smoker and have had two teeth pulled this month alone on separate occasions. If you keep the hole covered with the moist gauze, your clot will stay where it needs… Read More
No it's not ok to smoke with gauze in your mouth. You should not smoke after a tooth extraction because you can have a higher chance of getting a dry socket which is very painful.
Normally, the wisdom teeth--if present--will be pulled. One hopes to retain the molars for life.
u got your wisdom teeth pulled out dummy
No, some can be pulled normally like all the other teeth. Not everyone has to have their wisdom teeth removed. They only have to be pulled or surgically cut out if there isn't room for them to grow in, or if there is some other problem with them. But most people keep their wisdom teeth with no problems. I still have all my wisdom teeth, but I had several other molars pulled before the wisdom… Read More
Your wisdom teeth do not necessarily have to be pulled out. Usually, the situation is that the gums are not large enough to accommodate all of your teeth, including the wisdom ones, hence they have to be removed to prevent crowding, which can be very painful in some cases. There are a few people whose mouths are large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, so they don't have to be pulled out.
I don't know if it's OK. I have braces myself and my wisdom teeth are coming in right now. Unfortunatly, I have to get them pulled, if anything that's what would happen. You should wait until the wisdom teeth come in, and then get them pulled, because the metal bands may not fit around the wisdom teeth, and most people have more comfort when their wisdom teeth are pulled. I have braces and my wisdom… Read More

What is worse having a bone marrow transplant from your hip to your mouth or having all four wisdom teeth pulled out?
They should only need to be pulled if they are causing a problem. If there is no problem then they are perfectly good teeth to keep.
You should keep changing it until you stop bleeding heavy(the gauze will turn a much lighter shade of pink) or until your dentist tells you to. Everyone is different though. For my top wisdom teeth I bled for 2-3 hours after they were extracted. If the bleeding doesn't stop in a timely manner I would get in touch with or dentist or a doctor right away.
they had their wisdom teeth pulled.
After the bleeding stop usually after an hour or more depending on your mouth....
if they are bleeding, yes. if they aren't then, no.
It is not normal to have bone sticking out after wisdom teeth are pulled. It is normal to have stitches and skin that cover the bone, so it is a good idea to check with your dentist if you can see bone.
I'm not sure if this will help, but when I got my wisdom teeth pulled out several years ago, I returned back to work after 3 days.
No. I had my wisdom teeth out today, and one of the doctor's instructions was to not blow my nose for at least two weeks.
No, having migraines for 5 days in a row is not normal at all after having your wisdom teeth pulled. You should contact the dentist right away.
You do not necessarily have to have your wisdom teeth pulled if your mouth is big enough to fit them. In some cases, the teeth will be fine but in other cases they will grow in a manner that causes damage to your bite or causes the bite to become misaligned.
No. Once they are pulled, they are gone for good.
yes you do...if you dont it will only cause pain

Now that would not be wise. Your not supposed to smoke anything for at least a week after getting your wisdom teeth pulled out.
Wisdom teeth do not always require removal. Many people have wisdom teeth that have erupted normally and have not caused any problems. In some cases, however, wisdom teeth may be impacted. This means that there is not enough space in the jaw for the teeth to come in normally or to come in at all. Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected or interfere with other teeth. To prevent such problems impacted wisdom teeth are often… Read More
Way back when, wisdom teeth were used for chewing harder materials that today we cannot digest (aka bark). An appendix was used for digesting bark. Wisdom teeth were very helpful when we were cavemen, but not now. We have evolved to not need wisdom teeth anymore, therefore they are pulled out. Many people don't even have wisdom teeth. I had three.
go to the dentist then get your teeth cleaned then go back the next day and get them pulled out
Yes, you can continue taking your birth control pills after you have had your wisdom teeth pulled. These do not interfere with the procedure or other medications you might end up taking for pain.
Wisdom teeth can hurt for up to a week, believe me. I've had them pulled myself. If the problem consists for more than 7-10 days contact your dentist,
yes! although it is extremely rare, it has been known to happen.
yup just had them pulled and am drinking some now
If there's a valid reason. For example, sometimes wisdom teeth don't have room and will cause damage to the teeth in front of them if allowed to grow in.
Yes you could. You shouldn't though. After you have had your wisdon teeth pulled you need rest. it is possible but you wouldn't benadviced to.
No, you can't get a second set of wisdom teeth. Once a permanent tooth is removed, humans do not regrow them. However, I have seen patients who naturally have extra wisdom teeth, or extra permanent teeth elsewhere in the mouth.
yes .... lot's of people dead
Sure! I was a teenager when I had my wisdom teeth pulled, and that's a surgery.
