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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Not at all! Braces help your teeth look a lot better and will remove the gap between your teeth.

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

It is not always necessary to remove wisdom teeth. They are often removed because there may not be enough room in your jaw for the teeth to grow in properly, and they can put pressure on the other teeth. However, some people do have jaws that are large enough to include wisdom teeth. I personally have never had any trouble with my wisdom teeth.

To remove fixed braces they simply use a tool which cracks off the braces from your teeth, this is not harmful or painful for your teeth. Then you will have your teeth cleaned and polished to get rid of any excess glue. Then you will more than likely have some pictures taken and impressions to give a mould of how much your teeth have improved and your fittings for your retainer

I think the youngest age to have braces is around 11/12 as all of your milk teeth have to be out and all of your adult teeth must be fully grown. However, if your teeth are really bad and desperetely need braces then they will remove your milk teeth.

You have to brush your teeth so no mark comes when u remove the braces

Yes. If your mouth is big enough, like mine is, there is no need to remove the wisdom teeth. I know many people who have all of their wisdom teeth, or only had 1 or 2 removed.

No. If you have a chipped tooth or a tooth that isn't the way it's supposed to, the dentist will have to remove it before you can have braces.

No, it is not necessary unless they are badly impacted which means growing in the wrong direction.
