I was pregnant for 2 years in a row and it really destroyed my teeth, during my last pregnancy a bottom tooth on the left side right before the molar broke off, my insurance discontinued after i had the baby and due to my income status at the time i was not eligible for insurance. Tonight the pulp became exposed and my tooth or whats left of it has been bleeding most of the night. I plan on calling a dentist in the morning but how to i get the bleeding to stop so i can sleep

  • To stop the bleeding you can put some pressure pack and bite on that for half an hour. it will help in stopping the bleeding or you can use iced tea bag to stop the bleeding. if you sip some thing cold and the bleeding is not profuse then that will also take care of the bleeding. Do not take any thing hot as it will increase the bleeding. Best is to use the pressure pack. If you want to know more about how to stop the bleeding you can browse this link for do's and don'ts after tooth extraction. http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-tooth-extraction-27.aspx
