Bleeding gums

Hi,

I just got my deep gum cleaning yesterday and the bleeding just wont stop.  I went back to the dentist today, and she gave me a couple of injections to help coagulate the blood.  But, it is still bleeding.  What do I do? Any help would be appreciated.

I'm a 26 yr old male.  I've tried keeping gauze pads, and also tea bags a couple of times.

Thanks much!

Is it a constant bleeding like a fresh cut?  Or is it more like a little oozing where you can see some blood diluted in your saliva?

Oh, this bleeding is from next to/behind the wisdom teeth.  Thanks!

I'd say constant.  I've had to change a few gauze pads cuz they were getting somewhat soaked.

Thanks much.
