A 24-year-old female asked:
Why would causevthe tooth extraction site to bleed after two weeks? haven't had any bleeding since the first 24 hours.

Trauma: Although it has been two weeks, the new tissue is quite fragile, and trauma from food may have injured the site. You should be fine. If it continues bleeding, see your surgeon.
