What can I do if my tooth extraction blood clot failed?

What can I do if my tooth extraction blood clot failed?

If you eat and rinse your mouth before a proper clot formation, you can start bleeding again, in this case reapply pressure with a gauze or best use a tea bag and bite on it for 15 minutes, it should help.

Just follow up with your dentist for a post op check about 7 days from the time of the extraction. ...Read more

I am on day 8 after my tooth extraction. I took my meds for a wk and haven't had pain so far. I worry about dislodging blood clot. Should i be worried?

No: Sounds like you have followed all of your post-surgical instructions and are healing well. The blood clot has done its duty and is allowing the extraction site to start to form the matrix then the bone will fill in the void. Do not worry about the blood clot. ...Read more
