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

No. The braces will hold the teeth in place.

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.

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.

AnswerIn 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.AnswerAfter having had braces, 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.

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.

Dentists will usually tell you you'll need to get your wisdom teeth out before that happens.

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. Very often, if wisdom teeth have no room to erupt, it is recommended to extract them following an orthodontic treatment.

Yes, I am 11, I originally got braces when I was 9.

Having braces placed on your teeth does not hurt. As they braces are adjusted periodically, your mouth can be uncomfortable, but tolerable.

I had my wisdom teeth out first and then had my brace fitted once everything had healed, wisdom teeth can leave a rather big hole!

For me, they put my braces on, not putting brackets on the ones being pulled, they few months later they pulled out the 4 wisdom teeth.

I don't see why you cant drive after having you wisdom teeth cut out.

User Avatar

Your teeth will always move. that's why after people have braces there supposed to wear their retainers to keep their teeth in line.

User Avatar

Yes, that's the ultimate goal for braces and when you get them off

User Avatar

They might a little, if the wisdom tooth or teeth were really crowding them, but it won't be a huge amount.

User Avatar

Yes, I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed 2 weeks ago while wearing braces.

User Avatar

I have never heard of that happening. As far as I know, eyesight has nothing to do with you having or not having your wisdom teeth.

User Avatar

yes if u losted your frount 4 teeth

User Avatar

They will be out by then, there is no point moving no permanent teeth

User Avatar

Yes they will help straighten your teeth without having braces on the bottom. I have had braces before and I didnt have them on my bottom and my teeth straightend out quickly.

You can eat after having your wisdom teeth removed, but you should eat food that aren't crunchy, such as mashed potatoes, pudding, and milkshakes.
