Bleeding of the Gums / Teeth

Q: Concerning the blood which remains succeeding a tooth extraction, assuming (a) (gently) pressing a piece of tissue against the related area causes the tissue to become contaminated with blood and (b) that one’s saliva doesn’t become reddened by the blood, what is one’s duty? Can we eat something? Does the plate from which we eat become najis?

A: Consuming food is not problematic in the above scenario; furthermore, one’s utensils and vessels will be regarded pure as long as they don’t become contaminated by the blood.
