It’s been a weird week to say the least... I had my wisdom teeth removed 7 days ago, and I was just starting to return to some more solid food. 2 days ago, I was eating a quesadilla when an onion well weird on my back molar gums, and it popped the gun right off of the molar. This gum was located on the molar right next to where my wisdom teeth were and was still a little swollen at the time. Now 2 days later, the gum is still not adhered to the tooth, and I’m starting to get concerned. The gum will sit where it used to, but can still be peeled off. Is this normal/not uncommon after wisdom tooth removal or should I be concerned? I have a relatively clean dental history and nothing but one cavity on my record.

The strange thing is that those on the internet who actually know the answer are the ones who are subjected to liability. This is an easy one. There are dentists here who know the answer but lawyers prohibit them from answering. But there is nothing to keep the quacks here from telling you to swish grease.

Have you asked your dentist? They should be able to help. Most dentists I know are very helpful.

Go back to see the oral surgeon who removed the wisdom tooth. They may not charge you, since it is a follow-up to the surgery. Regardless, it needs to be looked-at. Might be perfectly OK, but a dental professional, preferably the oral surgeon, needs to see it and decide.

I wonder if any one can advise. My dad, in his early 70s is to have his wisdom tooth extr, as it is too far gone t fix via a filling. I appreciate that a wisdom tooth extraction is essentially a younger person’s op, & as with any op, even a kinda routine one like wisdom tooth, ‘age’ carries greater risks, specially in the recovery process, when complications can happen, ore so when the patient is young
Anyone here had experience a sregards this process as regards an older person?
Thanks

I improved my gum health by taking 12 grams a day of C-complex, the gums are firmer, and my last checkup, the hygienist made good remarks, and hardly had to scrape the barnacles off my teeth like he used to. I got the idea, to do so, after I read an article on DR. Linus Pauling, who reportedly took 19 grams of C per day, but never explained why.


I now have a holistic dentist, and all the bad teeth I had [root canals and leaking amalgams ] and such
were removed by my new dentist. You must be eating pretty well to still have your wisdom teeth.
