Lip Blister After Dental Surgery
I'm wondering how long do sutures last in your mouth after having dental surgery and how long are you supposed to be in pain?
Depends on type..: There are different suture material used for different surgical procedures, but generally the sutures are either self resorbing, or non-resorbable ones. The resorbable ones, like gut or vicryl, normally start breaking down between 2-4 weeks. The non-resorbable ones, like silk or nylon materials should be removed normally @ 7-14 days...; generally, after 10 days you should normally be pain free. ...Read more

It is important that your surgeon submit the tissues to an oral pathologist for microscopic eval. ...Read more

Maybe / unrelated: It is certainly possible that you may have scar tissue which remained following the removal of some abscessed teeth. However, it is not likely the reason you are having trouble 'opening' your mouth. The likely reason is that during the procedure you had to open wide and you probably just strained your ligaments. Using warm compresses and slowly massaging the joints should help. Good luck. ...Read more

The surgery is less risky than the spread of the infection. If recommended, have it done. ...Read more
