Is it OK to get braces if your wisdom teeth may come in soon?
I don't know if it's OK. I have braces myself and my wisdom teeth are coming in right now. Unfortunatly, I have to get them pulled, if anything that's what would happen. You should wait until the wisdom teeth come in, and then get them pulled, because the metal bands may not fit around the wisdom teeth, and most people have more comfort when their wisdom teeth are pulled. I have braces and my wisdom teeth came through and my otho hasn't done anything to them.

It usually takes a few days for the infection to be reduced and the pain to go away. . Note: If placed on Amoxicillin as a preventive measure due to wisdom teeth removal (dentists usually prescribe a short course of antibiotics for most patients in case of any infections after the procedure), the …general pain felt due to the surgery will also subside within 2 to 3 days, given no infection. Should there be an infection and no antibiotics given beforehand, you will most likely be prescribed Amoxicillin and it may take 3-5 days for the swelling and discomfort to completely go away. . From my experiences, If the infection seemed intolerable, I asked for the shot in addition to the course of pill treatment. Usually by that next day I felt better but take the whole course of treatment your doctor gives you. . Amoxicillin is an antibiotic, not a pain killer. It is likely that it was given to kill the infection that caused the problem to begin with. The pus will drain out and with it the swelling should also go away. The pain will go away with the puss, pressure and swelling. It is unlikely that, because of the infection, a pain medication would have done much anyway without the antibiotic. Zilactin or Num-zit can help to temporarily relieve pain, such as before bedtime, and is an over-the-counter medication. (MORE)
Can you get Invisalign braces when your wisdom teeth may have caused your front teeth to overcrowd and become slightly crooked?
Wisdom teeth do not cause crowding and I can prove it. When I was in Dental School we did a study. We took one group of people that had impacted wisdom teeth and graded their front tooth crowding. We then took a second set of people that had normal wisdom teeth in full bite and graded their crowding…. We took a third sample that had wisdom teeth removed at a young age (below 16 years) and graded their crowding. We took a forth sample of people congenitally missing all wisdom teeth and graded their crowding. Know what we found? Wisdom teeth had no bearing on crowding of teeth later in life. Those with no wisdom teeth at all had the same incidence of crowding as those with the most severely impacted wisdom teeth. We developed (or perhaps a better term is adopted) the mesial migration theory. The theory is that all human teeth that are not artificially locked into position will tend to move anteriorly (towards the front) throughout life. It is merely coincidence that teeth seem to get more crowded or begin to crowd around the same time as the eruption of wisdom teeth. Yes. Over the past 6 years since my wisdom teeth emerged, by front teeth, particularly on my top row, have overlapped. I have Invisalign now and the treatment duration is about 1 year, although the teeth will have the appearance of straightness in about 6 months. I have just started my Invisalign trays. My front teeth are somewhat crooked and I still have two wisdom teeth reamining. (upper right and lower right). I was convinced that my wisdom teeth would have to be removed before starting Invisalign, but that was not the case. From what I understand, Invisalign can handle a variety of cases and situations. It is definitely worth looking into as I thought I would have to have braces versus the Invisalign. I am 2 months into my Invisalign treatment and all 4 of my wisdom teeth are still impacted and have never caused me any trouble. My orthodontist did not see the need to have them taken out before my treatment. If they start to come through, I will have them out there and then, but not before. The extraction may be unnecessary and painful if they haven't been a concern. Wisdom teeth can stay dormant for may years and may never come through at all in some life times. My Mother had trouble for the first time at 57 years of age! It all depends on the crowding extent of the individual and how much movement there might be to aggravate the wisdom teeth. With the Invisalign treatment, selective teeth are slightly 'shaved' to create room to move, thus not pushing too many teeth back into the mouth. Yes, Invisalign braces will make your teeth straight, although they do not a perfect job under orthodontic rules compared to conventional braces. But your teeth will look much nicer and your crowding will be corrected. Your dentist will most likely recommend you to extract your wisdom teeth before using Invisalign if you are an adult. (MORE)
After you have your wisdom teeth out how soon is too soon for the stitches to come out on their own?
A few days but check with the dentist who did the extractions. They generally like the sutures to stay in for a whole week, but sometimes it doesn't hurt for them to be a couple of days early. Always call the dentist who did the extractions though if anything out of the ordinary takes place. Resorba…ble stiches come out after a few days. If they fall a day following the surgery, the gum healing can still be fine, but it's better to advise the dentist and check with him or her. (MORE)
If you are eleven and you are going to get braces is there any danger if your wisdom teeth are beginning to come in?
Your orthodontist should be able to answer this question. In some cases, there is enough room for your wisdom teeth to come in without overcrowding. There shouldn't be any real "danger" except that they may cause your teeth to become crooked which is why most people have them removed eventually.
It is recommended by a dentist to smoke AFTER TWO FULL DAYS, meaning at least 48 hours after the removal of wisdom teeth. Also keep in mind that the dentist said this time is an estimate as peoples healing processes differ. He said some should wait at least 4 or 5 days. He said for any smoker, they …should wait 3 full days either way to prevent DRY SOCKET from occuring. To learn more about dry socket, please visit http://www.calweb.com/~goldman/dry_sockets.html. I hope this info helps!. Answer 2 . It is best to wait at least 48 hours before smoking after you have had any tooth extracted. (MORE)
Answer: Dentists tell you not to drink hot liquids or smoke because doing either may affect the tissue from healing as quickly. Answer: No Wait at least 48 hours. Answer: NO - SMOKE AT YOUR OWN RISK Smoking within the first 48 hours will hinder the formation of a blood clot in the socke…t which will lead to a dry socket, the most pain you will ever experience in your life. Technically, I smoked the day of surgery and every day since, but I smoked very little, only a few small drags, and covered the area with wet gauze and rinsed lightly afterward. I got all 4 wisdoms removed; although all my teeth were erupted, he had to cut out the bottom two due to age (26) since the lower jaw bone is no longer spongy and the teeth can't be pulled. I'm on my sixth day and except for the first two days where I smoked a little more (I'm stupid, like a couple drags two or three times a day), I only have a couple drags in the morning (still with the gauze and rinse afterward - warm saltwater). I am a diehard smoker and I know I will go back to smoking once I am better healed (I see the dr. tomorrow for my check-up). While a part of me sees this as a perfect opportunity to quit and I even feel like I could, I just like smoking too much and I know that I'll start up again. We'll see. I have relied heavily on the patch and rather than focusing on how I'd like to smoke, I've just been picturing how bad it is in terms of healing to be smoking. So far, I have not had any dry sockets, but I also heard that dry socket can occur for up to 14 days after surgery (though highly unlikely). I think I'm in the clear but at this point I just want it to heal well - even when I do step outside to smoke, it just seems not worth it since I really can't enjoy it. If i can't smoke all I want and how I want, then it's really not worth it, especially with the threat of dry socket. I agree with everything the other person posted - smoke as little as possible and when you do, cover the holes with wet gauze (not dry or it will stick to the surgery site!!) and do not suck, place the cig in front of your mouth and just breath it in from the end without using your lips to grasp it. Drink water afterwards during the first 24 (if you stupidly decide to smoke like me), and rinse with saline solution after the first 24. Always rinse gently and be sure to follow all of your doctor's instructions for aftercare. I recommend getting a patch and smoking as little and as gently as possible (I would really recommend not at all, especially for the first 48, but I'm trying to be realistic). Just put on a patch (I found that it worked amazingly well) and keep your mind off of it as much as you can. I know it's hard, but it's only something you have to do for a little while and I was actually surprised at myself for being able to smoke next to nothing for the past six days. My doctor's instructions were not to smoke for at least 48 hours, others say 72 hours, and others say at least 4 days. Dry socket typically occurs within 3 to 5 days after surgery, so I would try to smoke as little and as carefully as possible for those 5 days. They say that a week without smoking is optimal as it allows for the best healing. Dry socket typically occurs after getting the lower wisdom teeth removed because there is poor blood circulation to that part of the mouth - smoking exacerbates this, which is why it increases your chances of dry socket, along with the toxic chemicals and smoke that can dissolve the clot and the suction from smoking. Get the patch and try not to think about smoking - the more you think about it, the more you'll want to smoke. Good luck!! . Drawing on the cigarette creates a partial vacuum in your mouth which makes excessive bleeding much more likely.. (MORE)
You should give it at least a day before have a cigarette and use salted warm water to gargle with and spit out. The salt helps to heal. If you are bleeding DON'T sip out of a straw when drinking. Have soups, dip bread in the soup, yogurt, jelly, etc., that are all soft foods for approx. 3 days. Aft…er that you should be able to continue on as usual. Ceprocol is another good mouthwash (ask your pharmacist if you can't find it on the shelf) to keep bacteria down in your mouth and also keep your breath fresh. Blood in the mouth can smell.. Answer 2 . At least 48 hours, or you might get a dry socket. (MORE)
\nI would try using Tylenol 650mg instead, to prevent extended bleeding that can occur with \nMotrin or Advil. An opiate like Lortab/Vicodin would also be a good alternative for a few days.
Before I had braces on, it was suggested that I have my wisdom teeth removed, so I did. It could however depend on the individuals teeth, mine were quite crowded or as they call it impacted. You'll be glad you got braces, good for you.. Answer . Very often, if wisdom teeth have no room to erupt,… it is recommended to extract them following an orthodontic treatment. (MORE)
Answer In most cases, there should be no problem in having your wisdom teeth extracted while you are still wearing braces. This is usually done when there is an infection on the wisdom tooth, or when the extraction is indicated to help with the orthodontic treatment. Answer . After having had br…aces, for four years, the orthodontist told me which teeth had to be extracted PRIOR to the braces being put on. The extraction sites had to then heal, before the braces could be applied. Working around braces is so difficult, that normal dental cleanings and flossing can NOT be done. (MORE)
No... Answer No, because accumulated food might cause infections. You can try to rinse with water and salt to remove the remaining food. If that doesn't work, you might purchase a plastic syringe from the pharmacy that make it easier to clean the extraction holes. _________________________ An ea…sier method is to purchase a "Water Pik" there are stand alone units that cost a fair amount. The cheapest type of water pik to get is a Quick Breeze Oral Irrigator . You attach it to your faucet and you can control the pressure. It can also be used as a water flosser. ------------- Using a watter jet or water pik is a perfect way of removing food and plaque that is still soft, and it has to be used as a regular addition to your daily teeth care, along with brushing and flossing. Here's a video with great info about oral water jet - http://www.checkdent.com/en/videos/oral-water-jet-123.html (MORE)
To prevent serious complications, such as a dry socket, it is bestto wait at least 48 hours to smoke after any dental surgery. Your dentist may tell you it's better to wait 2 days until smoking,OR sucking drinks through a straw. The reason for this is, whenputting pressure on your mouth like such, …it can cause the bloodclots to be pulled from the gum. It doesn't matter how much yourgums hurt, you should always take the advice of your oral surgeon,despite your urges to smoke. The reason dry socket can occur through smoking, rather than justsucking on a straw, is because if the blood clots happen to beloosened, or removed from the gum, it is very possible for thetobacco smoke to seep into the gum and infect it. Before you get your wisdom teeth removed, ask your oral surgeon howlikely it is that you may get dry socket. Your oral surgeon will behonest with you. (MORE)
Yes, but it is hard to do in the first day of recovery! The best foods to eat are oatmeal, ice cream and anything else that is soft and easy to swallow without much chewing!
Having you widsom teeth pulled would not affect getting braces. Normally braces are used to straighten the front teeth. Besides, your widsom teeth are in the very back of your mouth, you probably would not have even had the braces go that far back.
Yes, it's ok for your wisdom teeth to erupt while you are pregnant. But make sure they don't cause infection by rinsing your mouth with water and salt every day!
You can drink fluids as soon as you have enough feeling to swallow safely unless your dentist tells you otherwise. However, after any extraction, do not use a straw for a few days. The suction can dislodge the blood clot too soon and cause a very painful condition called dry socket.
Wisdom teeth begin to come in between the ages of 17 into the midtwenties. Many people must get their wisdom teeth removed due tolack of room in their mouth.
You shouldn't do anything strenuous (getting blood flowing fast) for 24 -48 hours, including heavy lifting. It's important for clotting to occur at the extraction sites, so also no spitting or smoking or using straws for 2 - 3 days.
If you accidently have them come out, but it has been a few days, then it is okay, but if its the day or two after you got them removed and you start to bleed or really hurt, then I would suggest that you go back to your dentist or surgeon as soon as possible so they don't get infected and then you …could get really sick. (MORE)
For the first week after recovering, eat popcicles and soft foods if you can eat at all! Don't eat hard things or things you can't chew with your front teeth.
No, it is not necessary unless they are badly impacted which means growing in the wrong direction.
You should not eat or drink anything hot until the local anesthetic has worn off. While you are numb, you risk severely burning your mouth.
no, your wisdom teeth wont stop you from getting your braces, the only teeth removed before getting braces are baby teeth. although getting wisdom teeth removed when theyre coming in is necessary, and if not then straightened teeth can be moved and pushed by incoming teeth, and crowding the mouth.
Yes you can get braces having wisdom teeth, and the wisdom teeth will not get brackets put on them but it is best to get the wisdom teeth removed with in at least the first year of having your braces to avoid your teeth not being able to shift correctly
The idea is to avoid taking anything that may cause bleeding. Its not the cigarette or the smoke that is the problem here. Its the high temparature that can cause profuse bleeding. It would be a good idea to avoid anything hot in your mouth for at least one full day. And while you are at it, try… making that two days and then three. AND presto! before you know it, you may have kicked the smoking habit good bye! good luck! (MORE)
ask your dentist and see what they say, but mine told me 24 hours then i could cause it will cause you to get a dry socket
it depends on how severe your mouth is messed up if ts bad it could be anywhere from 2 to 3 years but if not probably only about ! 1 to 2
Dental braces with a porcelain jacket in the front teeth isperfectly acceptable and very common. The only disadvantage is howeasily the porcelain can be broken.
Give it a few days, maybe even a week or two at the least. I smoked the day after my teeth were pulled and it breaks up the clots in the holes, which led to dry socket (which is a lot worse than it sounds, imagine not being able to open your mouth wider than a centimeter for about three weeks) and i…nfection in multiple sockets. Definitely not worth it, just cold water extract your vicodin out of the pain pills they give you and relax. (MORE)
Well, I know from experience. I clench and grinde my teeth and my back brackets on my molars always fall off. Does that answer your question? the braces on my bottom teeth get in the way when my top teeth bite down on them like when i eat the top teeth touches the bottom braces
You have pain in your gums and and it is sometimes pushes up against the other teeth
Molars come first. Wisdom teeth are the last natural teeth to appear in the mouth. Wikipedia explains: "They are generally thought to be called wisdom teeth because they appear so late-much later than the other teeth, at an age where people are presumably 'wiser' than as a child, when the other teet…h erupt." (MORE)
after the socket has completely healed:( but I took a dip the next morning. just be careful to keep it controlled and don't spit, let it drool out
I wouldn't recommend anything that requires much chewing. Often your entire jaw can be sore and the area of the recent surgery can be aggravated by such foods.
Yes, they can. Wisdom teeth usually start coming out when you are between 15 - 22 years old.
It can be a few days or a few weeks, depending on how quickly your gums heal.
Probably a month cause it takes 2weeks to heal then the rest just to make sure it doesn't hurt as much any more.
Dentists will usually tell you you'll need to get your wisdom teethout before that happens.
Most o the time.............YES, bcuz if u don then......I'm not sure wat will happen but most of the time u do & usually always. But don take me advice go ask ur doc. ; )
At least three days. Drinking through a straw can dislodge the blood clot which is necessary to heal properly.
Wisdom teeth should be extracted when they push and damage the 7th tooth while they grow, also when they develop a cyst or cause an infection, and wisdom teeth are removed if they're causing problems with prosthesis. Here's an interesting video about wisdom tooth extraction.
You can't until the tooth is fully healed/closed-up as alcohol can speed up circulation/blood flow and cause you to bleed more not to mention it can freshen up the wound. We all have varying time-spans for healing but make sure that before you drnk it has been a day since the wound has already close…d-up/healed. (MORE)
I wouldn't suggest swimming 48 hours after surgery but when i had mine out i was swimming a week after surgery. (mainly because i had a swollen face and i was letting low until i went out in public again!) i would suggest lots of rest and when you are ready you can give swimming a go! just be carefu…l not to push yourself and/or swim straight after surgery as risk of blood clots being shifted. hope this helped! (MORE)
not everyones wisdom teeth come in at age thirteen just like how some peoples teeth fall out before others
One should not smoke weed unless prescribed. However, if one does smoke weed, you shouldn't smoke weed until your gums are fully healed from the surgery. Smoking may increase a chance of an infection, so if able to, you should refrain from smoking until the gums are fully healed.
Wisdom teeth should be something you should get out as soon as you can, otherwise it can lead to problems with your other teeth or mouth, unless your mouth is big enough to keep them in. Your dentist can tell you if you'll need them out.
Wisdom teeth also called 3rd molars usually start to erupt anywhere from 17-21 years old with excepts since everyone is different and may vary. Some people never have them come in while others may have been born without 1 or even all 4 of them. When they erupt, the teeth have to cut through bone and… tissue just like all the rest of your teeth. The "extreme" pain some may feel is from not having enough jaw space for the new teeth to come in. So instead of a smooth eruption, the teeth come or try to come in slanted (called impacted molars) pushing on the 2nd molars in the mouth because there isn't enough room to turn straight and pop through. The impacted wisdom teeth can cause extreme pain, jaw ache, and infections from the whole process. Please see a dentist if you start to have such pain to avoid complications and advanced discomfort. It will not get better if erupting wisdom teeth are not extracted. (MORE)
Some people get them in their teens while others don't get them until they are well into their twenties. It depends on the person. Some lucky people never get them at all!.
You know they are coming in properly when the whole tooth is coming in at once. Not just one side at a time. When you can feel both sides of the tooth (when its growing in) you know that they are coming in properly and faster then an abnormal wisdom tooth would grow in. Sometimes if you can't feel b…oth sides right away its alright too! It will just take a little longer for both sides to grow in. You also know that its growing in properly if you are receiving a decreasing amount of pain. When it first starts to come in you feel a lot of pain but as it grows in more you feel less and less pain. However, if you feel an increasing amount of pain I recommend treating it with ice. If the pain gets worse the best thing to do is visit the dentist. (MORE)
One the primary signs of incoming wisdom teeth is pain ordiscomfort in the jaw below the ears.
