Hi, it is possible that there was some tissue torn or irritated during the cleaning visit which could easily cause some bleeding. However, after this length of time after the visit the cause is most likely not the cleaning. As long as the bleeding is not continuous or reoccuring then you should be ok going forward! Bleeding can easly occur if the area is traumatized by eating or just by your home care and if it is self limiting then you should be ok.

Are you still bleeding? Is the molar the last tooth in your arch? Any other symptoms? Thanks.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
