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.

Resorbable 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.

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.

Do your other teeth hurt when you get wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth can definitely crowd your mouth and push on your other teeth, which may cause discomfort or even pain inside your mouth A few years ago I was told by a dentist that my wisdom teeth were not a problem and would not need to be pulled, but then a couple months ago I got a terrible toothache and thought it was a cavity. But my new dentist told me that it was just my wisdom teeth crowding my mouth and causing me pain. The pain in my mouth became increasingly worse by the week until I could get into my oral surgeon this past week to get my teeth out. If you're experiencing pain and your dentist recommends you get your wisdom teeth pulled, do it as soon as possible!!

Brushing your teeth after your wisdom teeth have been pulled?

DON'T BRUSH YOUR TEETH THE FIRST DAY!!! I know it will be kind of gross, but you can't brush your teeth the first day because you may loosen the stitches. And if the stitches come out, then you will have a disgusting, bloody mess and would have to go back to the dentist to get the stitches re-sewn. That would not be fun! :(24 hours after surgery you can start brushing your teeth. Brush VERY GENTLY and go VERY SLOWLY when brushing near the wounds.*I would recommend using toothpaste with baking soda as soon as you can start brushing because in a few days after surgery, you will start getting a disgusting taste in your mouth which is basically your wound oozing out bacteria. (I know it sounds gross... it is. But it's true!) The baking soda will help give you a sweeter, fresher taste in your mouth, and will hopefully stop the oozing within 1 or 2 days instead of a week!Hope this information helped! Good luck with your surgery. :D
