    Pulled large blood clot

    Hello, I had my tooth extracted yesterday and this morning when I woke up there was this large jelly like string hanging in my mouth. I got scared and pulled it out. Rinsed my mouth out with the warm salt water and now my extraction area is bleeding, along with a small amount of pain, but the same pain from when it was pulled, nothing new about the pain. I packed it with gauge but worries that I missed something up. It's also a Saturday and dentist office is closed. Any advice please.

    You're fine. The clot had stemmed the bleeding.Removing it started the bleeding again. Rinsing your mouth and using the gauze were the right things to do.
