Hello, Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. I've never heard of a Captain's toe. It that a different name for the great toe? I will put that in my lexicon.
As for blood clots or bruises under toenails, that should not be a result of the tooth extraction or of the medication for pain. Neither the Tylenol and codeine nor the novocaine have any effect on blood clotting. You may have hit your toes without realizing it while under the influence of the pain medication. Easy bruising can be a result of regular use of aspirin or other medication that affects blood clotting, or it can come from low platelets. It is definitely something you should mention to your medical provider but isn't really anything to be greatly concerned about.

I know for a fact I did not stub my toes. I was laying down or in bed after my visit to the dentist.
I'm just concerned because I am not someone who bruises easily and to see BOTH my toes with clots is very bizarre.
I always hear of deep vein thrombosis and how dangerous clots in the leg are. Are there any symptons I should be worried about?
Symptoms of DVT are pain, hotness, redness, and swelling. The most common place is the leg between the knee and ankle. The toes really don't have deep veins.
