Excessive Bleeding

Bleeding should stop within the first hour, but you can expect oozing of blood for the first day or two. If bleeding persists, apply pressure with a moist gauze or tea bag for one hour. If these measures are unsuccessful, return to the dental office. If you develop a fever, have excess swelling (some swelling is normal) or a bad taste in your mouth after 24-48 hours, you may have an infection, please call or return to the office for an evaluation.
