Its been 77 hours since the surgery. all went well. wasnt impacted. i think i clotted just fine. not sure though. no blood except pink blood first thing in the a.m. I awoke to find one of the stitches came loose in my mouth. the top one near the back thats on the soft spot where my jaw connects. is this normal? also when can i have a well deserved drink?

  • Now a days absorbable silk sutures are places that gets knocked out of the mouth gradually as the healing process goes on but it usually takes a week time for normal healing and it your case it has not even completed 4 days. So, I would recommend you to inform this to your dentist. Getting your healing site exposed can be an open invitation for bacterial to grow. Also maintain a good oral hygiene by doing warm saline gargles everytime you have meals. For more info visit the link...'s-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
