Is it normal for sutures to losen itself?

I know i keep asking questions about my wisdom teeth extraction, but just yesterday i noticed what looks like a loose thread. When i realized the sutures were coming loose, i notified my parents, and they both said to leave it like that because the incision is now closed and im almost recovered. Should i be concerned if sutures do began to fall by itself? Im not in any pain. I dont think i was scheduled to return to the dentist after a week. But shouldnt dentists tell their patients to come in a week after wisdom extraction, just to check on how the healing is going? Im wanting to go back just so one of them can check and see how im healing
