I may have loosened a stitch around my tooth implant.

It's been 12 days and things are fine after extraction, graft and implant. I'm hoping the loosened stitch is not a problem; any thoughts?

Oral wound stitches is generally removed a week later, not more than 2 weeks. Going back to your surgeon to have a post op exam is advised.
