How long should the blood clot remain in the hole left after extraction? It's been a week now and there's still blood in there. Plus the stitches are still there. I don't want to mess with it as there isn't any pain. Do I leave it alone or siphon it out?
Hi Tracey, Definitely leave it alone. It is likely healing just fine since there is no pain but you should have a follow up visit with your dentist to have it checked and get some answers to your questions.
