| | Sutures dissolving after wisdom teeth extraction...Help!
I had my wisdom teeth removed 8 days ago and am still in moderate pain. Taking vicodin every 3-4 hours, and one suture has come out from the top, but the ones on the bottom are hurting badly. they are on both sides of the extraction sites, and i can feel them just slightly under the gum, and OUCH. The one on my left side has come part way out, and when I talk, drink, or anything with my mouth, it kind of flaps and hurts so bad. I thought they would have dissolved by now, but no luck. Is there ANYTHING I can do to speed up the dissolving of these? They are the most painful parts of my mouth. Would using more mouthwash or anything help? Thanks in advance.
