I recently got a a deep cleaning completed on Wednesday. However my gums have been oozing blood clots in 2 areas. Sometimes they will fallout, however they always reappear. One more extreme than the other. How long should this last and is this normal? This is beginning to freak me out.

Hi,

Are you taking any anticoagulants (blood-thinners)? That might explain it.
