Its been 12 hours since I have had my wisdom teeth removed...?

Should i still be bleeding this much??? I have one side of my mouth that has completely stopped bleeding, and the other side, one or two of them are still bleeding a pretty good amount. I don't want to call my dentists emergency number if I don't need to, but I'm still spitting up good amounts of bright red blood. I've been putting gauze on there and adding pressure to help it stop, but even after a few hours of constant pressure, the instant I remove the gauze, I start bleeding again. How long should I wait to call my dentist if it keeps bleeding?

    Stop removing the gauze. Every time you pull it out, you are dislodging the clot and starting the bleeding/clotting process anew.
