Can you get a blood clot in the mouth?


Answer by  JIJO21 (5)

I recently woke up with a blood clot on the inside of my mouth. It seemed to have formed over night because it wasn't there the night before. you must get rid of it, rub the inside of your cheek with a tooth brush, it might break the skin and release the blood. Be sure to gargle with mouthwash afterwards.

Yes, blood clots can form in the mouth, and usually tend to form faster than at other parts of the body due to their proximity to the heart. They are also much more easily broken, due to the constant contraction and expanding of areas of the mouth when eating, talking and doing other oral activities.

It could be from many causes and needs to be checked by a physician for testing to see if it is a bleeding disorder, tumor, effects of an anticlotting medicine etc.

I think you can get a blood clot anywhere on your body. Your blood flow isn't working well so you can clot anywhere the blood flows. Hope this helps you out.
