  • It is not normal for adajacent tooth to bleed. May be the bleed is seeping from there of extraction socket. Sometimes oozing of blood from extraction socket is there upto 72 hours after tooth extraction. If it continues then it is better you schedule an appointment with your dentist. Till then try to area clean and donot irritate and donot eat from that side. Follow all do's and don'ts given by your dentist. for more info on tooth extraction you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-bleeding-after-tooth-extraction-877.aspx
