It's totally depend on case selection ... example :  complex dental extractions, such as removing impacted teeth, the bone and gums around the tooth may need to be moved or partially removed...To ensure that the gums heal cleanly around the jaws and do not create a food trap, sutures are used to approximate natural soft tissue contours. It is neither normal not abnormal. It just depends on which tooth it was, any major systemic disease of the patient , degree of difficulty in removal, was there more bleeding than expected, are you about to go away for the next week etc. There are lots of reasons to place a suture over the socket. Grossly Decide ... and cleverly proceed !!!

IN SOME CASES..WHERE BLEEDING NOT .. STOPED WITH GAUZE PADS.. AFTER EXTRACTION..

It is not nessary after every extraction case If you have bleeding or large socket make suturing

Based on extent of loss of tissue and also bleeding suturing needed not for every extraction.

No Do a suturing if you feel it is reqd

Suturing depends on socket condition and hemorrhage

Sutures have to be put to make healing by primary intention Closed method of extraction doesn’t need sutures while open method may need surures
