Re: Removing stitches
I have had stitches in my mouth four times....
once for a rather difficult extraction and the other three times for
On NONE of the occasions did I have the stitches that dissolve so
(of course) I was required to go back so the dentist could remove them.
Each time, I went in 7 days after the procedure, and never was it the least
bit uncomfortable or painful. Really, I either felt nothing, or it was a small, very slight
*tickling* feeling as the stitch was removed.
As the other poster said, it does take a while for the holes to fill in.
