A few days but check with the dentist who did the extractions. They generally like the sutures to stay in for a whole week, but sometimes it doesn't hurt for them to be a couple of days early. Always call the dentist who did the extractions though if anything out of the ordinary takes place.

Resorbable stiches come out after a few days. If they fall a day following the surgery, the gum healing can still be fine, but it's better to advise the dentist and check with him or her.

If you accidently have them come out, but it has been a few days, then it is okay, but if its the day or two after you got them removed and you start to bleed or really hurt, then I would suggest that you go back to your dentist or surgeon as soon as possible so they don't get infected and then you could get really sick.

Is it OK to get braces if your wisdom teeth may come in soon?

I don't know if it's OK. I have braces myself and my wisdom teeth are coming in right now. Unfortunatly, I have to get them pulled, if anything that's what would happen. You should wait until the wisdom teeth come in, and then get them pulled, because the metal bands may not fit around the wisdom teeth, and most people have more comfort when their wisdom teeth are pulled. I have braces and my wisdom teeth came through and my otho hasn't done anything to them.
