See dentist: I recommend you go back to the dentist who extracted the tooth and have the extraction site examined. The gingiva (gums) are in an active healing stage at this point and can be readily disturbed and easily bleed just by eating some hard, crusty type foods and even by brushing your teeth and gums.
