I got my wisdom teeth removed about 19days ago. i'm still having pain in one of the areas, and the stitches haven't dissolved at the bottom yet,this is the area thats sore. Is this normal or should i go back to the dentist?
the top extractions and stitches have dissolved within 5 days, but the bottom ones haven't.
Should i go back to the dentist?
He did say they'd dissolve?
If the pain is not substantial, its likely not something to worry about. Depending on how difficult to tooth removal was, the gums in the area can be tender for weeks. Keep the area as clean as you can. If pain persists for much longer I would see your dentist asap to make sure the site is not infected. Hope that helps.
