How can I help my gums to heal while there is suture on the gums? Or foods to eat?

Healing after dental surgery
antibacterial mouth wash and antibiotics are usually prescribed after surgeries to prevent infection
It is better to avoid chewing and direct pressure on the surgical site. So very soft diet is usually recommended
Hopefully without disturbing the site, you can help the gum in the area heal.
At your next follow up appointment your dentist will let you know if the healing is ok or the need for further treatments....

What we do with our patients is prescribe chlorhexidine and in many cases suggest to use Perio Science products which is a natural antioxidant. These products could assist in the soft tissue healing. Most importantly, please have your surgeon identify the true cause of what sounds like delayed healing.
