    Bleeding Gums after Dental Work?

    Hey All,

    Two days ago I had a cavity filled for the first time in my adult life. Still having some blood coming from the area. Not like a lot, but enough to see it when I brush my teet or touch the gum with a cotton swab.

    Is this normal or should I go back to the DDS?

    Hi...did the dentist use a dental dam? The clamps of that could cause bleeding. If no... It's possible it was from the dentist flossing after the filling was done.

    I suggest rinsing that area a few times a day with salt warm water. If you have pain or increasing pain, then definitely call the dentist.

    Let us know the outcome.

    It's all a matter of perspective!
