Tooth extraction stitches fell out shortly after surgery

I got my wisdoms extracted and on my way home, i kept spitting up little particles that i would guess were stitches. Anyways, now there's a big hole on my bottom right side...should I be worried? Or is that normal?

It is very unlikely that stitches have come out so shortly after getting the tooth extracted and that to by spitting. It is not possible but still if you feel that there is a big hole then you should consult your dentist immediately as it can disturb your clot formation and can cause the formation of dry socket which is a complication after extraction and is very painful condition. After extraction, especially after wisdom tooth, you should follow all the instructions given by your dentist like you should not spit, donot smoke and donot use any stray as it dislodges the clot formation and hence delays the healing and sometimes causes complications.
