There typically is a space indented between all of our teeth. Thicker bone around where the roots are, so while a very good question, it shouldn't be of any troubling concern. With regard to the loss of the suture, it may may not be of concern. If you feel that the tissue/gum is separating where the one suture came out, then it would be prudent to dash in today to see your Dentist or whomever placed the suture for a replacement (at no cost to you - other than your time of course). But, if there seems to be little to no displacement of the tissue, then I'd merely keep an eye on it and observe it day to day. Does that make sense?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
