Open Suture Thread After Wisdom Teeth Surgery In A Different Place
can you open stitches after wisdom teeth surgery in a different clinic / puskesmas
Thank you for the question.
After the wisdom tooth is removed, so that the wound closes quickly and there is no prolonged bleeding, the dentist will suture. This suture thread, if the type used is non-absorbable (cannot be absorbed by the body), then it needs to be removed some time later. For this, the dentist will let you know the next control schedule for removing these stitches.
Responding to the current conditions, where the COVID-19 outbreak is sweeping our country, some health facilities can indeed limit their services for certain reasons. If for this reason or other reasons you cannot undergo removal of the wisdom teeth extraction stitches at the same health facility, then no problem. You can go to your dentist at another health facility at the doctor's recommended schedule. Most importantly, explain well to your doctor your previous medical history, when and what details of the surgery you went through before, as well as what kind of condition of your wisdom teeth that eventually operated on. Armed with this information and checking the condition of your tooth extracts directly, of course the doctor can give you the best treatment.
Hope this helps ...
