Bloody gum in extraction site

by Tracey
(Richmond, va)

I had my tooth pulled almost 2 weeks ago & now, I have pieces of bloody gum coming out of it??? I went to the dentist earlier this week because it was still hurting & he said it was fine....this bloody gum thing just happened this morning????

Hi Tracey, I would have it checked again especially if it is still hurting. A dry socket normally occurs sooner than 2 weeks but a follow up visit is a good idea.

I hope it feels better soon.
