Dear rhinoplasty patient,
I reviewed your posting. You had your rhinoplasty one month ago and you removed a dissolvable suture while cleaning your nose and now you feel sensitivity in your teeth and gums. This is due to irritation of a nasal nerve that shares sensation with upper gum and teeth. This should not be a temporary irritation without long term sequalae. If pain persist more than a day contact your rhinoplasty surgeon. Good luck and good healing
