Stitches can assist in the healing of gums. In complex dental extractions, such as removing wisdom teeth or impacted teeth, the bone and gums around the tooth may need to be moved or partially removed. To ensure that the gums heal cleanly around the jaws and do not create a food trap, stitches are used to approximate natural soft tissue contours. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Connect with: Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
