Handling Of Gum Seams That Are Released After Impact Surgery?
Hello, yesterday I had an impact surgery and yesterday the connection to my gums came off and I saw a hole in the operation, what should I do?
Hello Riyan, Thank you for the question.
Are you referring to loose gum seams? Gum suturing performed after the impacted tooth removal surgery aims to heal the wound more quickly and optimally. If the gum stitches are released, then of course you will feel a hole in your gums. Actually, if left a hole in the gum will close by itself, but it will take longer than when sewing the wound. Another risk that can occur is that food scraps can enter the hole and if not cleaned thoroughly, can potentially cause infection. In these circumstances, your dentist will usually be advised not to chew food on the side of the tooth and always rinse with water after consuming food to prevent food buildup. However, the best step right now is to re-consult the dentist who is treating you so that the doctor can re-examine the gum so that the doctor can decide whether or not to have a suturing done in your case.
In the meantime, please avoid chewing on the teeth and always rinse with water immediately after eating.
I hope this helps.
