Remove The Stitches After The Oral Cavity Surgery?
Good evening, I want to ask one week ago I had surgery in the oral cavity due to an accident. Lip, tongue and gum surgery. Then after one week I took off the stitches on the lips. Does the tongue and gums need to be removed? While earlier it was very painful when released
Suture is a common procedure used to help close wounds to reduce the risk of infection and support a better healing process (scars are minimal). The material used in the sewing procedure can vary between individuals and conditions but in general sewing threads are divided into 2, namely absorbable sewing threads and non-absorbable sewing threads.
If the sewing thread used by your doctor is absorbed sewing thread, there is no need to remove the stitches because the thread will be absorbed by the body itself. However, if the thread used is not absorbed by the body, it is necessary to remove the stitches.
Regardless of the type of yarn your doctor uses, you should still exercise medical control to make sure your scars and sutures are in good condition. You should also consult with your doctor directly about the stitches that are done so that you get information that suits your condition.
