Re: Apicoectomy- Stitches bothering me!
I had an apico done 7 months ago and mine completely healed, although at the time I had my doubts too. My stitches were not disolvable, I had to go back a week later to have them removed. They were bothersome and painful. If I laughed it felt like it pulled at the stiches.
Just don't go pulling your lip back trying to look at them. Follow the post-op instructions they gave you and call them if you have any questions. Also, do your best to keep the area clean. Warm salt swishes and using a mild antiseptic mouthwash should help.
