Wisdom teeth stitches.
Asked Aug 2, 2008, 10:50 PM
I just had my two bottom wisdom teeth removed on Thursday. Yesterday I noticed a white patch on top of the gum and stitches on the left side. The stitches are on top of my gums and then go up my cheek a little. Just a few minutes ago I ate and then went to rinse my mouth out with warm saltwater and I noticed that most of the white patch is gone and the stitches that were in the side of my cheek are also gone. Now there is a little hole exposed. It doesn't hurt and it's not bleeding, but there is a little bit of blood on it. The stitches are supposed to dissolve in two weeks and it's only been two days!
What should I do?
Is the hole going to heal as a hole or will it close up by it's self?
