Yesterday morning I got 2 of my wisdom teeth removed, now some of the undissolvable stitches are loose and falling but there's no pain or bleeding?

Yesterday morning I got 2 of my wisdom teeth removed, now some of the undissolvable stitches are loose and falling but there's no pain or bleeding?

No worries: After extracting thousands teeth, I have had patients who had loose and even missing sutures. The final outcome was the same, a healed extraction socket. Do not do anything that may cause suction, i.e. Use of a straw, smoking, etc. As this may cause the dislodging of the clot organizing inside the socket. Loss of this clot may cause a dry socket which is very painful. Call your dentist and ask. ...Read more

Pressure: In most cases, you will be asked to bite down on sterile cotton gauze for at least 30 minutes, or longer if you can.

Without knowing when you had extraction ;your medical history, it is hard to tell. Mostly, a few hours should be plenty. Call your dr to confirm. ...Read more
