  • It can be some food lodgement or if it is the pus do not irritate it or try to remove it.Just do warm saline rinses gently 2 to 3 times a day and follow all the instrctions given by your dentist.If you are given any meds you can take them also. You are going for the removal of your stitches tomorrow if it is infected the dentist will take care of it.You can use some good antimicrobial mouth wash also.
