Is there a shot to stop the bleeding after a tooth extraction.

Question for you. When was the tooth extracted? Under normal conditions a blood clot forms soon after an extraction and bleeding should stop. If you are still bleeding you need to get right back to your surgeon and have him look at the extraction site. He will make recommendations when you see him.
Easier way. Applying pressure by biting down on a moist tea bag usually helps. If not, call your dr. A gauze packing in the socket, and perhaps a vaso constrictive agent, will stop the bleeding!

Bleeding. Generally biting on gauze with firm pressure for an hour will do the job. If the socket continues to 'drip' like a faucet then biting on a moistened tea bag for 30 min will do it. The tannin in the tea will clot the drippy area. If the bleeding is heavy see your dentist asap. Read more...

Depends . If you just had the tooth extracted, you should only bite on gauze for about an hour. If you keep gauze in your mouth longer, you may pull out your blood clot. You can also bite on a wet tea bag for ten minutes. The tannic acid will help clot the blood. Do not suck on anything, smoke or spit for 24 hours. If you continue to bleed, contact your dentist.

Several things. The first thing to try is to bite on some slightly wet gauze for 30 mins, and repeat this for another 30 mins.
