Overcoming Blood That Never Stops After Tooth Extraction?
Hello, I want to ask, I have pulled out Graham’s teeth, right? Because I told him to take the cotton off after an hour, but it still continues to bleed even though there isn’t much, but it still bleeds … How do you stop the blood? Thank you
Hello Ndy'nadira Dwi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Bleeding after tooth extraction is a normal thing to happen, but in general the bleeding will stop as soon as a blood clot has formed which blocks the source of bleeding. The time needed by a person's body to make a blood clot varies, on average ranging from 5-30 minutes in normal people, so in general you will be asked to cover and bite the cotton that is stored in the former tooth extraction for approximately 30 minutes. If after 30 minutes there is still a lot of bleeding, you can replace the cotton and bite it again. After that, re-evaluate whether there is bleeding or not. In general, bleeding will stop, if there is still a lot of bleeding, it is advisable to try to go back to the dentist because this can be caused by several things such as interruption of bleeding time and blood clots, high blood pressure, impaired shape of blood vessels in the jaw , and others.
Generally, if there is only a small amount of bleeding left, this is not dangerous because it can be caused by several causes such as scraping at the extraction site, suctioning at the site where the teeth were removed, gargling the mouth too coarsely, etc. causing a blood clot that has already formed lost again and cause rebleeding.
To help stop or cause rebleeding:
Put the cotton that has been put on you in the former location of the extraction, do the cutting, make sure that there is not too hard pressure at the bleeding site alcohol Brush your teeth gently, avoiding the former site of extraction Avoid activities that could increase blood pressure in the first 24 hours If the things above have been done but bleeding is still happening or becoming more numerous, immediately contact your dentist again.
I hope this helps.
