Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.
By a bridge I assume that you mean to say some sort of a cotton dressing was packed over the extraction site.
Yes, bleeding 24 horus after the extraction is not completely normal. The methods adopted to arrest the bleeding were probably inadequate.
I suggest you see the dentist
who did the extraction without any further delay. He will put in the sutures that should stop the bleeding.
Till then, you can do the following :Do not gargle your mouth.
Do not eat anything hot, spicy or hard. If you are a smoker, avoid smoking for some time.
Take a tea bag consisting of black tea and not the green or herbal variety. Black tea has tannins as its ingredient that help in arresting the bleeding. Put it it in water just so that it becomes damp. This is important, to prevent the bag sticking to the clot that will form eventually. Fold it in half and put it on the socket which is bleeding and bite on it for half an hour with firm pressure. If this does not work,repeat the entire procedure with a fresh tea bag.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.
I wish you a speedy recovery !!!
