Post op bleeding: Bleeding should be substantially controlled within the first hour or two, and certainly by the next day. It's common to have some slight temporary bleeding when the wound site is irritated from tongue, food, brushing or flossing during the first week. Anything more than that should be discussed with the dentist who removed the tooth. ...Read more

It is not unusual: to notice small episodes of bleeding for several days after wisdom teeth surgery; simply bite on gauze again in the area of bleeding. Actually, some bleeding after extractions is beneficial and sign of a normal healing. If concerned, see your surgeon for post-op appointment. ...Read more

In these instances you may be down several days. Generally, when the bleeding has stopped and the pain under control without narcotics, you are ready to work. Older people will require more time than younger. ...Read more
