I would recommend you make a follow up appointment to have those sutures removed. If you live near one of our offices, they can schedule you also to have them removed. We would charge a minimal exam fee that would be covered by dental insurance if you have benefits remaining. I hope this is useful.
Happy Thanksgiving and a fun Black Friday!
If non-absorbable stitches were placed, they might stretch a bit and become loose. If they are hanging, you will need to see the surgeon to evaluate, and remove if necessary....
The risk of these stitches becoming loose is that the tissue graft might move around and not take properly....
