    Question Concern over healing after wisdom tooth extraction!

    I had my two lower wisdom teeth removed eight days ago now and have noticed that the opening of one of the extractions has not closed up properly and there is an obvious hole in my gum about 4mm in diameter where my wisdom tooth once was! Will this need to be re-stiched or will it heal by itself over time? I've also noticed a bad taste coming from that area, but that could just be down to the remaining stiches that have yet to disolve. There's no severe pain, just a 'dull' pain from time to time. At the moment I only rinse my mouth out with warm salty water after eating. Any advice about anything else I could do will be appreciated!

    just wanted to let you know it took nearly 2 months for mine to heal. just make sure you keep rinsing so nothing can get stuck in it.
