Question Wisdom Tooth Recovery

Hi everyone, I'm new here.. Got my wisdom teeth pulled two weeks ago... my stitches on the top left suture are of most concern to me mainly because there is a sizable section of my gum lining(sitting on my rear left molar closest to the suture site) where i believe the stitched area did not mend properly.. the dentist in the neighboring town charges for simple check ups and I am broke, poor, whatever... I don't want to try and brush the tooth where the gum tissue is sitting and possibly irritate it or cause infection, but I am almost certain that if it is left in its current state, an infection will ensue regardless..
also all of my back molars are covered in a coral reef of plaque and I am only using salt water rinses with a syringe provided by the surgeon... I can only brush so far, and am concerned that the upper left stitched area was done incorrectly, an is of most concern to me.. any info is greatly appreciated!! thanks,

QuaidSCameron

Re: Wisdom Tooth Recovery

You must have a follow up appointment with who ever removed your wisdom teeth? If not you should and he/she should check these issues out for you.

Re: Wisdom Tooth Recovery

Thanks, Im gonna need to make an appointment on Wednesday... i am working until then and probably wont have a ride until then... just hope that my gums don't heal in the awkward position they are in.. Cant wait to eat real food again... As far as the follow up appointment, I'll have to contact my dentist as the person who removed my wisdoms is a physician who works out of an office five cities away...
