My husband went to the dentist yesterday for 3 simple extractions after the dentist pulled the first two he said he notice where the third tooth was there was swelling and said it was an abcess he still pulled the tooth gave him antibiotics this was 11 am Saturday morning and from that area where the abcess is it will not stop bleeding not just a little but a lot for example I covered his pillow with a thick bath towel he still got blood on the pillows bleeding through the towel and pillow case and this is with gauze in his mouth I seen on a thread to try a tea bag did that still bleeding heavy and pain. I called the dentist to see if they have after hours or a on call dentist but they have neither, I asked him did he wanna go to a pt first but he doesn't MY QUESTION IS HOW CAN I HELP WITH THE BLEEDING UNTIL MONDAY feeling like a helpless wife any ideas

Keep putting pressure on the area with gauze these bleed more and bleed longer when infection or abcess and make sure he does not spit and does not rinse the mouth out this will make bleeding worse watch out for nausea from blood going down throat don't take out the gauze too often is he taking any blood thinners like aspirin the tea bag can help make sure it is a regular tea bag not herbal tea those don't have tannic acid and more expensive then you should call the dentist if still problems I hope this makes sense.
