A bubble where my tooth used to be.....

User Level:

Posted by: Dancing_saphires  (9 years ago)
I had a molar pulled about a month or so ago...it took 3 hours and lots of stuff to deaden the tooth so it could be pulled. The Dr. said that there wasn't any sign of infection and couldn't understand why my tooth wouldn't deaden. The space around my molar became torn up during extraction and the tooth next to it was loosened. Now there is a bubble that seems to be full of blood. It doesn't look like a blister really....just a large bubble and it's right behind the tooth they loosened ( no longer lose). It's really bothering me. What should I do?

Please see a dentist about this problem, before more problems or infections can set in. If you are hesitant to go back to your previous dentist (that 3 hours worth of "deadening" the tooth, as well as your torn up gums sound disturbing), then maybe you can first get a free professional advice using the Ask a Dentist option on the thisisdentistry.co.uk website. The online dentists there will be able to answer your specific question, and guide you to the right direction on what to do next.

Best of luck!

I have practiced 35 years, and cannot imagine taking 3 hours to extract any tooth.

The adjacent molar may have been injured. A post-op x-ray should be taken.
