Yes and that is ideal to have no bleeding after the first half hour after an extraction. You might just have some great clotting factors that help prevent bleeding.

Bleeding can and will occur following the removal of teeth. The more important question is how much bleeding will you or should you experience and for how long. Some patients will have minimal bleeding after the removal of a tooth while others may experience significant bleeding for several hours. Your dentist or surgeon can provide you with more information.

The local anesthetic will cause vasoconstriction and decrease bleeding, taking Aspirin within a week prior will increase bleeding.
