Dentist 's  Response
you said patient does not have any family history,and no medical history.................
still bleeding did not stop since 30mins...........
but you did not tell that did you apply pressure,or topical application to stop bleeding..........
and what type of bleeding like,profuse bleeding or blood was coming out slowly......
before scaling what was the condition of gingiva,is there sever gingivitis?.....
if after application of pressure bleeding was there and it was a severe bleeding,you should consult with a physician............
do not get worried,be calm and handle your patient...........
everything will be good......
all the best...
take care

Dentist Dr. Vishal Jain's  Response


just tell me that it was profuse bleeding or blood was oosing out of gums.

have you given the pressure pack. use some topical anticoagulating agent for local application.
bleeding will stop if it is alight discharge.
if it is bleeding heavily from the gums then you may have to give the pressure pack for the long get the reason for the bleeding and for immediate remedy give tight suture to stop it. then go for the blood test to check bleeding disorders.
