I had 2 teeth pulled a week ago. All of my stitches have come out, but at one of the sites I can completely flip the skin of my gum up. Is that normal?

  • Complete healing takes around 3-6 weeks. If you donot have any pain or swelling then that means there is no infection. so this is normal but you have to maintain good oral hygiene as chances of infection are always there. There should not be any food impaction. Keep doing warm saline rinses and maintain good oral hygiene. Follow all instructions and meds given by your oral surgeon. for more info on post op care after tooth extraction, you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-tooth-extraction-27.aspx
