Dissolvable Stitches for Oral Surgery?

Answer

Dissolvable stitches are often used for oral surgery, especially for wisdom teeth extractions. They are used so the patient can recover at home and will not have to go back to the oral surgeon to get the stitches removed. While recovering from oral surgery, the patient should be rising their mouth with warm saline water around five times a day. This will help reduce inflammation which causes discomfort and help the stitches dissolve in time.
