| | Stitches in Mouth
I had a salivary gland removed from my mouth this past Friday. It has been 4 full days that I have had stitches in my mouth. The oral suergon said that as long as the stitches remained for 3 days that wound would be able to heal. The cut is on the inside of my lower lip, and from what I can tell any cut that was previously there has healed by now. What are some painless ways to remove or help ease the stitches out of my mouth, such as chewing gum to work the lip, talking, etc. The stitches are irritating and I just wish they would come out already! Thanks!
