    Question with regards to wisdom tooth extraction .

    I got my left bottom wisdom tooth removed approx 3 weeks ago . 3 days after it got infected , went back and put me on antibiotics , but got worse I then went on IV antibiotics - after that it was not getting better I went to different dentist , and he said I had dry socket so I got it re opened and formed the blood clot - it’s now been 8 days since the re form of blood clot and it’s still sore so another antibiotics .

    But one concerning part where they must have opened my gum up ( not tooth hole ) it’s not been stitched up both dentist didn’t see an issue . But food gets stuck in there . Should this be stitched up ? Also as mentioned by other posters feels like gum stitched to mouth - but when I pull back it looks like a lumpy sore , ulcer type thing .

    And there is still a little bit of swelling running on my left side jaw line . Just wondering why would they leave a hole unstitched - would I over time fill up with food down that hole .
