Hi, I had an extraction today and I've some blood in my mouth. I'm worried about using the gauze as I've had 2 dry sockets in the past and I'm worried about dislodging the blood clot. What should I do?
If it’s oozing I’d leave it. But for actual bleeding you need to roll up a clean hanky and bite down for a good half an hour - sit still and rest for the rest of today I would also call the dentist for advice and reassurance
