What happens with the sutures? How long until they dissolve?

How long does it take for the skin sutures to dissolve?

White skin sutures are dissolvable, blue or black ones have to be removed after about 6 – 8 days. The white skin sutures dissolve in 1 or 2 weeks. If they would still be in the skin after 2 weeks they will easily break when you pull with your fingers.

How long does it take for the sutures in the mouth to dissolve?

That normally takes 5 – 7 weeks. If they would still be in your mouth after 7 weeks you can easily remove them just by pulling as they will immediately break.
