Hole visible an hour after wisdom teeth extraction

Hey guys, I've been looking everywhere for help on this, but no one seems to know much.

My girlfriend just got home from having her wisdom teeth pulled (4) and she was looking at the area in a mirror, and noticed that there is seemingly a hole and a big flap of skin that opens up.

Is this a normal occurrence, and we are reading too deeply into something that isn't a problem, or perhaps is this a sign of shoddy dentistry or just bad luck that one of the holes opened up?

It's my understanding that the teeth should be sutured closed, and seeing this hole has really put me on edge.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Re: Hole visible an hour after wisdom teeth extraction

my suggestion is dont open your mouth if you just had an extraction even if she has stitches!!! I had mine pulled out and with stitches and everything got a dry socket, hurted as you can't imagine, so tell her to follow the dentist intrs and be patience.

That's great advise, but my problem, is that there is a hole in her mouth an hour after getting them removed. Do you know if this is normal, and we should just continue NOT messing around with it? Or is this something unheard of, and we should make our way to a dentist?

If you feel concern then the best choice for you is to see a dentist, they will probably stitch it again, better for you not to risk.
