hi,
thanks for posting your question on Just Answer

The best thing to to do for a bleeding socket is to put guaze and bite on it

yes you can put anebesol, or orajel
www.orajel.com
20 percent benzocaine will help

if you have a tea bag you need to put a tea bag on the site it will help the bleeding to stop

if the bleeding does not stop in 2 hours after trying the above please visit the dentist and get stitiches
to close the socket

please feel free to ask a follow up question
