Hi, I had a deep cleaning on my teeth yesterday. Today after seeing some bleeding in one tooth couple of hours after flosing and brushing, I found a kinda big blog clot covering the top of the tooth in between the gums.
I'm kinda worried, I removed the first blog clot and rinsed my mouth with listerine and then another formed. Now I just rinsed again and put a gauze over the tooth with the blood clot.
Is it to be concerned? Would I need stitches or simple should I just leave the blood clot in there without removing it?
Thank u!

Leave it alone, it'll go away when it's ready.

You don't need stitches, there won't be anything to stitch :)

Just wanted to see how things are post deep cleaning! I'm having one (full mouth at one time) in a few weeks!
