Gum recession surgery
I just had gum recession surgery and I don`t go back to my doctor until the 15th of this month. He put a dressing on over the operated part. How long does it take for that to come off? And will it fall off on its own?
The dressing is for a couple of days. If it stays on a week, it is better. But if it does not, it will not hurt the wound.
