You should do this forthe 24 hours following your surgery.
  6. Bleeding:There should be no outright bleeding after surgery, though a slight pinkish colour to your saliva is common. If bleeding occurs, place a moistened non herbal tea bag over the area and apply gentle pressure. Continue this for 20 minutes. If bleeding persists call the doctor.

If you have been prescribed mouthwash use it twice daily until the stiches are removed. Make sure there is no toothpaste in your mouth when rinsing.
