Yes, but


Yes, but only for a number of days. You might be accidentally rubbing your tongue against the site. Prop your head up on some pillows when you go to sleep. Consult with you own dentist who is most knowledgeable about your medical history and specific dental situation.

After wisdom teeth removal a week ago, I began bleeding and spat out a large-ish blood clot. I am soaking through gaze. Should I be worried?

Minor oozing of blood for a few hours after wisdom tooth removal is expected. If the coagulum builds up outside of the socket it is not uncommon to experience this. There is concern for the development of a dry socket if the clot is removed from your extraction site. You will likely have a significant increase in pain a couple days after and should see your DR for follow up. The sooner the better.

Call dentist


A little bit of oozing can happen, but bleeding is not normal. Call the oral surgeon or dentist that did the extractions today to report this problem. The dentist knows your mouth and situation and can best help you. Many times they can help you over the phone even if the office is closed.

It generally clots


pretty quickly. Keep biting on the gauze pack. If the bleeding still persists, then bite on a Tea Bag and call your dentist / surgeon. I'm talking about active bleeding, not blood tinged saliva.

How do I know when will the bleeding stop after you get your wisdom teeth pulled out?

Answered by:
Dr. Kenneth Rotskoff

Usually in 24 hour


Most patients will have some oozing of several hours after a widom tooth extraction. Remember a little blood ad alot of saliva looks like a lot of blood. Post-operative bleeding is controlled by biting on gauze for several hours after the extraction.

If you are in normal health without any blood abnormalities and the surgery was straight forward then usually it should stop within 1 hour. However, in some people spotting occurs for 24-48 hours. If concerned please call your doctor ASAP.

Does ice help stop bleeding from wisdom teeth surgery? I pulled out the bottom 2, but the right one is bleeding more than the other.

No


Ice helps keep swelling down but does not slow bleeding. Apply pressure to stop bleeding. Also wet a black pekoe tea bag and apply to the bleeding site. The tannins in the tea help to stop bleeding.
