I have 14 days time ago been up and have removed my visdomstand in undermunden. Here said my tandlaege that the stitches would disappear by itself. I have least in other places, that it is normal to have them removed within a week, since traaden else can get to grow together with the meat.
Now I'm starting to become a bit concerned, since my stitches have not yet disappeared and there is formed white splotches on. It is completely normal, should I have them removed as soon as possible, or should I just wait for the stitches to disappear?
You need to consult the dentist. There are otherwise several kind of thread you use to sew with, some of them can indeed disappear by themselves, where others require that the dentist remove them.
Hope you can use my answer.
With kind regards
