blood clot?

is it possible to get a blood clot if the blood is thin


for example if while going to the dentist gums bleed alot would that mean blood is thin?

if it is thin then most likely cannot get a blood clot is it so?

Re: blood clot?

Bleeding gums during dental procedures are usually indicative of gum disease or lack of flossing properly. As for whether thin blood can clot, it certainly can. As an example, people who take blood thinners, while having to be careful with cuts, will clot or scab over (which is basically a clot). What is your specific concern?

Re: blood clot?

It could be but it could also be 100 other things as well. If it's that much of a bother, have your doctor check it out.
