Hello, I want to ask, so a month ago I had wisdom tooth surgery, after that, because there were many competitions from school, I forgot to control and took off the stitches, now what if it’s been a month that I have not removed the stitches whether the stitches have combined with the flesh if so, can the stitches be opened for me afraid

1 Answer:

Hi Attala, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Suture threads can generally be divided into 2, absorbable threads and non-absorbable threads. If you are suturing non-absorbable sutures, they will need to be removed when the wound begins to close. The non-absorbable thread will not bond with the meat, but not pulling out the suture for too long can cause the thread to stick tightly to the flesh, which can make it harder to pull out and more painful to pull out.


Even though the string may have stuck to the meat, it should still be removed. Not pulling out non-absorbable threads can lead to infection and abscesses (pus-filled pockets) in the suture area. You should immediately go to the control to remove the suture threads.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
