Re: Bad Breath After Wisdom Teeth Removal
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.
