Generally speaking, sutures remain in place for 7-10 days unless the treating dentist has placed resorbable sutures which fall out on their own
Hi there,

Suture removal depends on the material and extension of the procedure. The stitches should stay for a period of 7-10 days. Some stitches are resorbable and don't need to be removed. Generally, the dentist explains it to you after the procedure is completed.
Hope it answers your question.
Usually, stitches that are resorbable are used with most of the implants procedures, so the need to remove them is not necessary. Although your surgeon or dentist may decide to remove any stitches at any time based on his or her evaluation of your surgical area, and the benefits/risk for allowing the sutures to stay in. Usually, most stitches that need removal may be done within days to 2 weeks, again based on clinical evaluations.
Depends on the type of stitches. If they are not self absorbed, you might need to see your surgeon in 2-3 weeks to cut the stitches off; sometimes we recommend 4 weeks.
7-10 days. Some stitches are dissolvable.
Thank you for contacting us. The answer to your question is there are two types of sutures. Resorbable and nonresorbable sutures. The resorbable ones normally take 7-10 days and the nonresorbable can take one to two weeks.
Depends on what kind of sutures we’re used. Dissolvable sutures generally dissolve after a week. Silk or other sutures will get removed between 1 to 2 weeks.
Generally, if vicryl sutures were placed , they are usually removed after 14 days.
Depends on what kind were used. Contact your doctor to find out.
There are sutures( stitches) that dissolve and others that have to be removed. Most dissolving sutures fall out in about two weeks.
Stitches that don’t fall out require a follow up appointment with the Dentist that placed them. There can be exceptions, follow up with your Dentist.
You should be asking your dental practitioner who will be performing the implant surgery because there are numerous ways an implant is placed which determines if sutures are even necessary.
Stitches usually stay for 2 weeks.
