blood taste is definitely normal, as is the painkiller use not sure baout the piece of tooth...i think i would prob contact the dentist and see if they want to do x-rays or anything to make sure it's all out
i'd have thought so. the sockets take ages and ages to heal, so even if there is something there i'd guess that they'll be able to deal with it on monday. and hopefully it was just a little bit that got left, or perhaps fell back in as the dentist removed it or soemthing?
Blood taste is completely normal. Tiny piece that came out will not be tooth, but a fragment of bone. Completely normal and I always warn my patients in advance to expect small sharp bits that look like tooth (but are actually bone) to work their way out of the extraction socket.
Needing to take normal painkillers is pretty par for the course.
I had a big molar out, and it took a lot of physical force from the dentist to get it out - my whole jaw was aching pretty badly for several days. So, I'd say if it doesn't feel like an infection (hot, itchy, etc) then I'd give it a bit longer. Hopefully you'll be feeling a lot of improvement by Wednesday, but deffo go back and talk to the dentist if not.
When I had my wisdom tooth out a couple of years ago I was told to take paracetamol/co-codamol and ibuprofen alternatly every 4 hours, and to expect to be on them for a week. In my case I didn't need to, but I think this was because I was in so much pain pre-extraction, any pain post extraction didn't feel painful IYGWIM. The ache almost definately is just from the force it took to get it out, but if you are at all worried/unsure, call your dentist. They should be able to reassure you over the phone if it is nothing, or may get you in for a quick check if they are unsure (but I can almost guarentee it will be the former).
Have lots to drink! I had all 4 wisdom teeth out in one go, terrible agony, infection in one socket etc - after about a week of feeling sorry for myself had a night on the G&Ts with some friends - cleared the whole sorry mouth mess right up!!
I had all 4 wisdom teeth out in hospital several years ago. Bloody taste & tiny bits of bone coming out are normal. I went to see my dentist as I was worried about the sharp bits of bone. He said it was nothing to worry about, and was called 'exfoliation'if I remember right. I found it helpful to gargle with half a mug of hot water with a teaspoon of salt in several times a day. The heat was quite soothing. Oraldene mouthrise was also helpful to get rid of the horrible taste. I was on pain killers for quite a few days afterwards. Also ended up with an infection, and the stitches on 1 socket burst while I was in bed - green goo all over the pillowcase <BOAK>. If you get a hot, throbbing pain in your jaw area, go to see your dentist or GP as soon as you can!
