| | Problems with stitches after Wisdom teeth removal
I recently had all four of my wisdom teeth removed. and all was fine. the pain receded and the swelling was going down. but then the swelling flared up again in my lower right area (where a wisdom tooth was removed) and I used a flashlight and a mirror to see what was up, and the stich used to close the gum is loose. there are just two ends sticking out of the gum. it isn't tied together anymore. besides the swelling there is some pain that's come back. I've been rinsing with salt water, but I wonder how serious this is. should I be concerned? and what else can I do to help this situation? Thank you.
