you should stop bleeding within 24 hrs otherwise you might make a trip back to your dentist to be checked out.

I just had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled and 2 molars about a week ago. My bleeding lasted about 8 or so hours. So Im sure it varies by person and how much of a bleeder you are.

SURE YOU can eat anything after having a wisdom tooth pulled out. Naturally you may not want to chew with the side from which the tooth was pulled out. You can chew with the opposite side. Why restrict your diet to bread,? ON THE day of extraction it may be a good idea to avoid hot food and hot drinks It can precipitate bleeding

The stiches should dissolve over the next couple of days on their own - they are not removed.

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! although it is extremely rare, it has been known to happen.

Bite on a wet tea bag for a few minutes. It will allow a clot to form and will not stick to the clot. Oozing is normal for the first hour or so.

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.

If the pulled out tooth was intentional, then just keep swilling your mouth out and sucking the gum where the tooth just came from. You should not go to bed with your mouth bleeding seeing as its quite easy that way to drown on your own blood whilst asleep. Lovely isn't it? But if it was not intentional, then push your tooth back where it came from in the gum because then there is a chance that it will stay there and that it will grow back in to the gum

You really should try NOT to spit after an extraction of any tooth. You can get something called dry socket - ouch! painful. Just hold onto a tissue and let it drool out. Sounds horrible I know but, you will develop a blood clot where the tooth was pulled and spitting can dislodge the clot and it will start bleeding again.

yes if you want to feel the pain and receive infections to the mouth cavities

I had chinese food the day of my wisdom tooth pulled...but I only got one done. The top right one, and I lightly rinsed my mouth after i ate.

A sinus infection is normally located in the maxillary sinus cavity, which would, in the ordinary course of things, not be related to having a wisdom tooth pulled. You would have to consult your oral surgeon to see whether he or she would decide upon an extraction of your wisdom tooth. I doubt that it would be a problem. You (and your oral surgeon) would only be concerned about the parietal and/or maxillary nerves close to your wisdom tooth --- and your sinus cavity is not. Regards, Jim.
