Platelet Count Spontaneous Bleeding
Thrombocytopenia: The platelet (plt) count is normally 150-400 (thousand). Major surgery is possible if the PLT count is over 100. Minor procedures are usually possible if the PLT count is greater than 50. You see increased bruising and mild spontaneous bleeding when plts are around 30.

In the interim, be sure you are brushing twice daily and flossing daily--this should stop bleeding--if not, consult dentist for exam and advice. ...Read more
