    Introduction: Evaluation of blood loss during major surgical procedures is given utmost importance to provide supplements to compensate the same. Extraction is one of the most common procedures carried out by a dentist in their practice. During dental extractions, as the amount of blood lost is assumed to be minimal, least importance is given to quantify the same. In this study, gravimetric method of estimation of blood loss will be employed to approximate the extent of blood lost by an individual during minor surgical procedure involving extraction. Aim: The aim of this study is to estimate the average amount of blood lost during closed extraction procedure. Methodology: This clinical study was conducted using standardized size of gauze which was pre-weighed and sterilized. These pre-weighed gauze will be used score 50 closed extraction procedures which excluded the extraction of mobile teeth and patients with bleeding and clotting disorders and other systemic illness. The gauze thus used was weighed post-extraction to determine the magnitude of blood loss. Result: The mean blood loss in study participants was 3.06 ± 3.0036 ml. Paired sample t-test showed statistically significant blood loss before and after dental extraction (t = 19.75, P < 0.001). There was no statistical difference with respect to age and gender post-extraction (F = 0.644 P = 0.595, F = 0.465 P = 0.709). Conclusion: Although negligible amount of blood is lost during a closed extraction procedure, it is the duty of the dentist to grade the same so that underestimation of blood loss is neglected and necessary dietary supplements are incorporated when required.
