Maybe you should take him back. Is he putting pressure on it with gauze? If not that's what he needs to do. Is he smoking? If he is it could be a dry socket. I think the best bet would be to call the dentist that pulled it and see what they say. Take a teabag, soak it in some warm water for a few minutes, express the excess moisture, and place it on the extraction site. Gently bite on it for an hour or so. Avoid smoking, sucking anything through a straw, and aspirin type medications. If it is still bleeding after 24 hours, contact the dentist who extracted the tooth. ANSWER Depends on how much blood is being lost. You can have some "Spoting" from your gum for a couple of days. I feel like the dentist went to war in my mouth when he removed my wisdom tooth yesterday. My jaw is swollen and I feel like I have air trapped in my chin and that my jaw is broken, not to mention that I have a serious teeth grinding issue so my jaw wants to clench but it hurts too much to do that. So a little blood is ok for a few days. Just gargle with salt water try to eat soft foods and try avoiding hot liquids.
