Question: not if there is stitching you have to brush over the stitching and when the stitching is removed then it is safe to brush, but gently because the area is still very sensitive. so be careful.

I wouldn't brush over those areas until after you go for your recheck - you don't want to accidentally pull out a suture.
your allowed to brush after 24 hrs. but their is no need to brush the stitches at all. use the water squirter they give to wash away food but dont brush the area with a tooth brush you will hurt urself
i got all four of mine out on wednesday and i can barely open my mouth wide enough to fit my toothbrush in...if you can, i say go for it but stop right away if it hurts.
Hey There Don't brush there I had my wisdom teeth out in September and brushed my stiched areas the day after and it hurt
A very light brushing with mouthwashes is necessary to keep it clean of bacteria. Use a brush with 'ULTRA SOFT' bristles, Sensodyne is a good brand. Brush gentl and make sure there is no blood on the toothbrush after brushing.
I had dental surgery for implants and this was the dentists recommendation
It would be easier if you used a chlorhexidine mouthwash, e.g. Savacol, Peridex. This will keep the sutures and the rest of your mouth very clean, without the need for brushing. DON"T use Listerine-type products.
I scrub all my patients' mouths with this prior to multiple or difficult extractions where suturing will be necessary, and give them a bottle to take home and use, and they come back squeaky clean. Absolutely no plaque on the sutures at all.
