I had my upper wisdom tooth extraction. I did it with numb shots. Didn't go for sleep sedation. The procedure was very quick and I felt some pressure while pulling out. Then he immediately said it's done. I was shocked. It literally took 2 to 3 minutes. I immediately asked him (thank God. I was awake and know what's happening). I asked why no stitches? He said no stitches required for upper wisdom tooth and only lower ones will have stitches. Is that so? Anyone had stitches for your upper wisdom tooth removal? How will the hole wound get better and sealed?? And , I am bleeding for 6 hours and keep changing my gauzes. How long will the bleeding continue? Is it normal? How to stop bleeding? I am feeling so sleepy and I couldn't sleep because I keep checking on gauzes and changing it every 30 to 45 minutes. How long bleeding is considered normal? my instructions page says that bleeding for 24 hrs is normal. If very severe, call the after hours. I don't know how much is very severe. I am changing gauze every 45 minutes and it's full. Before I put on another one, I see blood flowing on other teeth. How much bleeding is normal? How many hrs did you bleed and how did you stop it?
