Blood Clot After Tooth Extraction
Slow leakage: These are formally known as an exophtic hematoma, aka "liver clot." they occur when inadequate hemostasis, such as biting on a sterile gauze, is not maintained long enough. The bleeding continues at a slow pace and then the blood coagulates outside of the socket.
Probably not: After a week, some healing has begun. You may have knocked out a piece but if there's no bleeding, pain, heat, swelling, discharge or foul taste or odor then you are OK.See 1 more doctor answer
See a dentist: If the clot is actually loose, there is no way to reattach it to the bone and most likely the clot will come out. If that happens and you start to get pain, call the dentist who extracted the tooth. If you have pain now with the loose clot, also call the doctor to be evaluated and he might be able to get a new clot to form.See 1 more doctor answer

Leave it alone!: For the first couple days after the ext, don't brush by it, don't rinse too vigourous, soft diet, don't smoke, don't drink through a straw. Give it a chance to settle in and then you should be good, but even if you do all that you are told you can still get a dry socket.See 1 more doctor answer
