, I am 23 years old, just last week pulled out the molars on the right side. No.2 behind, after this week, I was sick. But why does the right lower jaw have red bruises? The redness is more maroon. It seems like there is a blood clot. And the former pulls out now as if it were going down like that. I suddenly felt pain.

Hello Ika Sulastri,

Tooth extraction is the act of lifting a tooth from the socket (alveolar dentis) on the alveolar bone. After the tooth extraction bleeding normally occurs. Blood seeped out from the part of the tooth extraction. Therefore, doctors usually give a gauze that the patient needs to press or bite to stop the bleeding. Patients are also advised not to rinse their mouth strongly, brush their teeth, and eat solid food in the first 24 hours after tooth extraction. Blood clots need to form in the tooth extraction area to protect the socket and alveolar bone until wound healing occurs and the wound closes. If the blood clot is loose or not formed, the tooth socket will appear (like a hole in the gum) with a whitish base (bone) and will run the risk of having a dry socket.

Generally the risk of bleeding will decrease dramatically after> 24 hours. Heavy bleeding can cause bruising / hematoma in the tissue around the socket. Normally it can fade within 7-14 days. Increasing bleeding - widening, causing large swelling to the cheeks, neck, under the eyes, severe pain, you should immediately consult a doctor.

If the tooth extraction is left toothless, then there are a number of normal things that happen:

 The surrounding tooth shifts in a toothless direction. Alveolar bone resorption Gum recession (gum down) Various dental restorations can be performed to restore chewing and aesthetic functions, for example by the installation of dentures, installation of dental bridges, or dental implants. This can be further consulted with your dentist. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
