Why the blister formed on the place of the wisdom teeth?

I got my wisdom teeth removed 3 weeks ago and I thought I was almost completely healed. My bottom left tooth had completely closed and then today I noticed this large blister covering where the hole was and on my gum. I irrigated the area with the syringe and the blister popped and released a lot of liquid. The area is still tender and the skin seems loose. It also seems like I reopened the hole in order to pop it. Do I need to contact my oral surgeon or should I wait it out a few days?

Hello:)Welcome to HCM.

You seem to have removed a blood clot over the area.Do not syringe the area with saline,instead you can gargle with saline.
Area of extraction can be slightly tender, this is not uncommon.
Give time for the site to heal.
I suggest you not to poke with your finger,syringe or tongue.

You can see your dentist if you have painor bleeding.

thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. the blister could be a mucocele secondary to trauma like bitting or any hot things. nothing to worry if it has ruptured then you can take topical anesthetic and analgesic like anabel gel. consult a oral physician to rule out any other pathologies like abscess secondary to tooth or gum infection. i hope my answer will help you. take care
