In brief: Bleeding gums

Some oozing of blood may occur the first day after wisdom tooth extraction and is very common.
Don't rinse your mouth, place a gauze on your bleeding gum and bite on it for around 10-15 minutes. It should stop the bleeding. Repeat as needed.

In brief: Blood clot

The blood clot may have become dislodged.
Bite on sterile gauze for 15 minutes and avoid rinsing or disturbing the new clot. See your surgeon if it continues.
