  • If the stitches which are put by your dentist are not resorbable then you have to get them removed after 7 days. If they have started coming out that means they are not resorbable and you have to visit your dentist to get them remved otherwise youcan nt be sure whether all the stirches have come out or not and if the stitches are left they can cause the infection. So schedule an appointment with your dentist and get the stitches removed.
