Should You Worry About Bleeding After Wisdom Tooth Removal?
A slight amount of bleeding is normal after a dentist has removed your wisdom teeth. However, are there any situations that should be concerning? Let’s take a look at some interesting professional advice.
– Your dentist will be able to handle any bleeding during the procedure.
– Applying pressure with a gauze pad will normally stop this bleeding.
– As blood will mix with saliva, it may appear worse than it actually is.
“Should you have any concerns about your amount of bleeding, don’t hesitate to reach out to your dentist.”
