    Default Tooth extraction - black lump size of tooth?

    Had rear tooth pulled yesterday - today only had the stomach to look in my mouth, and there's a black / white lump literally the size of a tooth.... Not sure if it's swelling or gauge pad??? Sure the dentist rolled them up in to sausage and asked me to bite... And when I pulled it out an hour later it appeared to come out complete

    prob just me being a girl lol - and gooorrrr my breath stinks lol - been rinsing with salt water yuk

    Sure it's not just your jaw?

    Don't use salt water, buy some mouthwash like a normal person, and don't rinse it out after or it's pretty much just a waste.

    As in jaw/gum swollen?
    could be the swelling and the clot?

    for the weekend the dentist said just salt water as mouthwash will be a bit to strong in the first 72 hours!

    It'll be fine mate, I had a couple of teeth out and it does make you worry I know. Just give it a little while to settle down.

    Had the exact same thing. They (in my case) leave a bit of gauze/padding I assume to stop the bleeding. I phoned them up cos I was worried but they said it is normal and dental nurse must have forgot to tell me.
    Mine was just as you describe, pulled it out all was well. I too wondered what the fook it was lol

    Thanks to piggzy

    Will phone up on Monday and see if I can run in and let them see don't want to poke or touch it just incase it's not and could rupture the clot....

    don't want to ignore as if it is a bit of padding it needs to be took out or infection will start :-/

    minging - really hate the dentist just a big pansy lol

    Yep salt water all the way for me too when I had my wisdom teeth out.

    I had a small white thing that was pointy and hard, I knew it shouldn't have been there but was scared to move it incase the clot broke and I started bleeding again. Anyway long story short, after it had healed a bit I got brave and started moving it with my tongue, gradually it moved more and more until eventually a long shard of tooth came out and I spat it out - about half a cm wide and 1cm long.

    Told the dentist and he said it must have been a remnant of tooth from when he was using the pliers on it and it shattered. Cunt.

    The black is normal (clotted blood) and the white bit could be a tooth fragment working it's way out from the extraction.
    Be careful you don't lose the clot, dry socket can be really painful.

    clotted blood and tooth fragments also sometime small deposts of calcium, ur body will push them all iut in a few weeks, just keep an eye on the smell if it gets worse the see the dentist as u may have infected it (i got a peanut stuck in one of mine a few years ago and it was rotten)

    Another vote for seeing the dentist again to get some antibiotics. Foul smell from a wound is a sure sign of infection. Had 4 extractions in the past. The mushy lump at the would is normal, the smell is something I've never encountered. Steer clear of listerine and stick with the saline wash.
