So I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed on April 9th. Everything is healing fine except for my bottom right tooth. I had a impacted wisdom tooth removed. That area has had an almost constant aching there, and there's a very foul taste in my mouth originating there. I bit on some gauze and some brown yellowish liquid what looks like dried blood came out and it smells really bad. I brush, rinse with salt and even clean the area with the syringe the Dentist gave me.. But the taste still comes back and more stinky brown stuff comes out. i've been taking antibiotics and tylenol#3. Is this normal? I would call my dentist office but they're closed all week. Help me please? Sad

Go back to the dentist as he probably has to open it up and clean it out...I have had this done and believe me, the hurt you feeling now will feel wonderful when it gets opened up and relieved....Until then, some salt water rinse is about the best I can say...

Good luck,
Caroline

stillwaterforever, I hope you finally made it to the dentist. They definitely need to come out. The yellow liquid should be abscess which is infected pulp within the tooth. Pulp is the liquid within the tooth. The teeth need to be removed, I hope you had it done and you are feeling better.

Hello there
stillwaterforever, it is an abscess to be frank. You need to go to your dentist and have him give it a look. He will prescribe you some antibiotics. Within a couple days, it will disappear like magic Smile Once it is gone, you must have your wisdom extracted asap. It does no good rinsing it with salt water/Listerine. GL
