Advice for bleeding tooth extraction site



Junior member

At 2pm I had 2 teeth removed. They were my premolars. One at the top and one at the bottom. The top has stopped bleeding but the bottom is still bleeding. It's 6:30pm now.
I'm worried that if I bite down on some gauze it will distub the top blood clot, because the 2 teeth that were removed are in line with each other. I hope that makes sense.
You can bite on the gauze. It won't hurt the other extraction socket. Your other option is to hold the gauze in place with your fingers. If you do this, you'll need to apply some pretty good pressure. Pressure is what will help stop the bleeding.
