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,
