    Blood clot after wisdom tooth extraction
    I just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday, and I was bleeding a lot for like 12 hours, and when I woke up it was stopped And I'm pretty sure there's blood clots there now, but I can't really tell. I still have a horrible taste in my mouth, and every time I swallow my spit it just tastes like blood, but I know it's not. Is that normal? And can I use the salt water wash yet or not? It's been about 18 hours since surgery.

    I would let the clots settle for a little bit before the salt water wash. It sucks, but this is going to for the next little bit.
