Hi, My son had 3 wisdom teeth extracted 5 days ago. He was complaining was impossible to eat because his gums are stiched to the inside of his cheeks on the bottom 2 . Is this normal? Thank you for helping Helen

  • After wisdom teeth extraction where sutures have to be given this, problem is normal. This will be solved when the sutures are resorbed if they are resorbable type or dentist removes them which is minimum after a week. Till then the chewing will be difficult . He can have semisolid food or the liquids like shakes and soups.
