Unhappy Bleeding after tooth extraction

Hi ya'll,
I was wondering how much bleeding after a tooth extraction is too much.My daughter ( who has been real sick) unexpectedly had a tooth pulled today about 3:00.It's now 12:45 and it's still bleeding.Not gushing, but a fair amount.We are applying pressure with some gause and I thought I'd try a tea bag if that doesn't help it. (something about tannic acid in the tea bag) But how much is too much bleeding? And does anyone have any other ideas to atleast slow it down more?

I probably wouldn't worry so much if she hadn't been SO sick recently.

Thanks for your help!

Tea bag should work.. You could try a small bit of salt. Its going to burn but it helped me when I got a tooth pulled. Also beer. But im sure she is to young for that. Keep up with the tea bag. Thats what my mom always told me.

Good luck.

My dentist told me about the tea bags and they do work.

Keep pressure on the site --don't keep moving the gauze or teabag to "check it"! Keep it on there long enough for the socket to clot!

She bled until about 5 am. She still can't open her mouth too wide or try to eat much of anything or starts up again. But I think she's good now. Thanks everyone for the suggestions! And Merry Christmas!

With the holiday, I think I'd call the dentist today to see if he needs to stitch it.
I had a tooth extracted not long ago, didn't bleed like she did.

Is it a top tooth?
If it's a top tooth, let's see if I can explain it, you have the molars, then going towards the front, the next tooth or the one after, between the eye teeth are right over the sinus. The day after mine was pulled, I had a piece of sinus infection come out of it. I won't go into detail, but would question stitching it.

As a dentist I would tell you to call the dentist that did the extraction and tell him or her about the bleeding and get their advice. Oozzing is very common after extractions. There are two types of bleeding. If it's bleeding and it's red, especially a few hours after an extraction, that could be a problem. If it's bleeding and it's brown then that's normal, but I would still call your dentist.

I had a tooth extracted 4 days ago, it started to bleed at night on the same day, actually after clotting, It bled for the whole night as no dentist works a night, the next morning the dentist put some special sponge on it to absorb the blood and pressure on it, then it stopped bleeding, but after 2 days, when after I ate some peach, it bled again!!! luckily not at night, so i ran to the dentist, this time he made 3 stitches on it just yesterday, Hope it will get healed again. It happened to me twice extractions. I still have no clue what is wrong.

I don't understand why they don't put a stitch in it to begin with.
I always ask & tell them I always get dry socket.
If they did not plan to stitch they usually do after that.
