Use gauze: Use the guaze you were given and keep changing it . If bleeding will not stop, try wrapping one piece of gauze around a regular tea bag and place that over the bleeding site and bite down. Call your dentist office. If the bleeding is pouring out of your mouth you should be having someone drive to their office or the emergency room.

Lost blood clot: It sounds like you lost the blood clot that seals the socket after wisdom teeth are removed. Keep biting on gauze pads or tea bags with pressure for several hours at a time. If bleeding does not stop, see your dentist.
