well i had all 4 wisdom teeth taken out a week ago. i go to get my stitches out today. weird thing is..i know you can get bad breath because of the inicisons made and everything..but mine just started today..if i am getting my stitches out then my incisions should be all healed over etc..why is my bad breath starting now?
You dont have to be 100% healed for the stitches to be removed. When the stitches was pulled out you will notice a bad odor. I believe that is because the stitches are coated with bacteria plaque and when it was pulled out you will smell a bad odor. It should go away in a few days with good home care of brushing and flossing. You can't have a dry socket if the stitches are removed.
I think you are fortunate not to have had bad breath for the first week. you probably missed the worst of it. I am suprised you could not smell mine from whereever you are it was so bad. Once you are healed it should go away.
