Wisdom tooth: Call the dentist or oral surgeon that did your extraction ASAP. You should not be having bleeding at this point in the healing process. They will provide the appropriate treatment.

Return: Return to your Oral Surgeon immediately. Until you get there, bite on a tea bag which will help staunch the bleeding.
