Bleeding 2 days after wisdom tooth extraction

Hi everyone...newbie here.

My fiance had all 4 of his wisdom teeth extracted on Tuesday afternoon. They were erupted, so no cutting, just pulling.

This morning he woke up with some blood on his face. Is it normal for him to still be bleeding? I don't think it's much blood, but it's definitely more than just a drop or two.

Maybe I'm just super paranoid, but I do worry about him. After all, he is my fiance

Any advice/reassurance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Bleeding 2 days after wisdom tooth extraction

yep its normal I used to work for a dentist and got that question all the time. Should stop soon though if he still has alot of pain he might have a dry socket, I got mine out and it took about 3 days for the bleeding to completly stop make sure he is not still putting the gause up there because he can pull out the blood clot that formed.
Good Luck!!
