Tooth Extraction / Bone Graft

I just had a tooth extracted.  THey put the bone graft material in it and sewed it up with stitches.  My question is where the stitiches are in the back part looks like something is hanging down and it is squisihy.  Could it be some sort or covering they put over the bone graft that is falling out? or is this normal?

Hmm, perhaps. Mine was the bottom second molar. Good luck!! I think it's normal. In any case, see if you can do a follow up appointment to make sure all is okay . :)

I had the same procedure two days ago; same here. I think it's normal.

Btw, do you have a lisp when you speak? I do and I'm afraid it'll now become part of my speec.
