Rinse your mouth with a mild salt-water solution.
Use a moistened piece or gauze or a teabag to apply pressure to the site. Hold in place for 15-20 minutes.
To both control bleeding and relieve pain, hold a compress to the outside of the mouth or cheek in the affected area for 5-10 minutes.
If the bleeding doesn’t stop, see your dentist right away or go to a hospital emergency room. Continue to apply pressure on the bleeding site with the gauze until you can be treated.
