I got osteem dental implant done but one of the stitches got loose and broke in three days. Is it alright to let it stay in there without doing anything for further 5-6 days? Or new stitches should be done? Breaking of these stitches is alright or not? I am not having any new pain, as such, due to the stitches issue. Only the irritation is more, maybe due to unattended/uncut thread lying in mouth. What should be done in this case?

Get loose stitch removed and it's okay that u wait for some days and ur suture line will heal. But maintain good oral hygiene. No resuturing as it will give you bad results. Rest your dentist is best person to decide have faith in him.
