Hello!

I just got two wisdom teeth removed, but noticed there are something white "sharp" sticking out from the hole itself, they put in stiches, seems weird that they might have left out some tooth, should i be worried?

also my dentist said that the stitches need to sit in for 1 month, that seems like an awful long time doesnt it? :eek:

Thanks for help in advance :)!

Maybe your dentist meant 1 week? The stitches should be either resolvable or nonresolvable meaning you need to return for removal. The "sharp" debris usually are "bone spurs" or bony sequestrum that usually exfoliates naturally. As long as your are not experiencing swelling and or pain, you should be fine.
