I just had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed on the 14th. Overall I would say things went quite well. Most things have cleared up by now except for some slight numbness on my left side of the cheek and tongue and my stitches.
I was told that they would dissolve in about a week...so far most of them are still there. The problem is that I am feeling tightness from them, especially on one side. I've been hoping that it's going to go away the past few days but it hasn't.
I was told that most dental stitches come out in 5-7 days. But if not out within 10 that the dentist will take them out for you. don't worry they will be fine. I have even cut one stitch out myself in the past. Good luck
