It should only last a few hours after the surgery. If it lasts more than one day, you should call your dentist, as you may be suffering from temporary paresthesia.

Personal Experiences: I just had my four pulled. I was numb from the novacaine for a couple hours afterwards, but that also might be because he gave me another shot of it before I left so I could have time to recover some before I had to start taking my pain meds.

I had all four wisdom teeth out a week ago and the left side of my lip and chin are still numb. It's from whatever drugs I was given, and I've been told it can last a few weeks to a few months; anything longer than 6 months I should go see the oral surgeon, as it could be a damaged nerve and would require more surgery. I was told this by the dentist and surgeon, along with some research.

Normally, the wisdom teeth--if present--will be pulled. One hopes to retain the molars for life.

No, having migraines for 5 days in a row is not normal at allafter having your wisdom teeth pulled. You should contact thedentist right away(or doctor)

No, some can be pulled normally like all the other teeth. Not everyone has to have their wisdom teeth removed. They only have to be pulled or surgically cut out if there isn't room for them to grow in, or if there is some other problem with them. But most people keep their wisdom teeth with no problems. I still have all my wisdom teeth, but I had several other molars pulled before the wisdom teeth appeared due to decay and abscesses. That made plenty of room for them.

Wisdom teeth do not always require removal. Many people have wisdom teeth that have erupted normally and have not caused any problems. In some cases, however, wisdom teeth may be impacted. This means that there is not enough space in the jaw for the teeth to come in normally or to come in at all. Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected or interfere with other teeth. To prevent such problems impacted wisdom teeth are often removed.

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, you can continue taking your birth control pills after you have had your wisdom teeth pulled. These do not interfere with the procedure or other medications you might end up taking for pain.

User Avatar

yes you can. because it does not have any effect on your wisdom teeth.

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

We don't know the details of your extraction. Ask your dentist.

Your wisdom teeth do not necessarily have to be pulled out. Usually, the situation is that the gums are not large enough to accommodate all of your teeth, including the wisdom ones, hence they have to be removed to prevent crowding, which can be very painful in some cases. There are a few people whose mouths are large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, so they don't have to be pulled out.

An adult that had they're wisdom teeth pulled or not come through then you have 32 teeth. But if you still have your wisdom teeth you have 36.

Wisdom teeth really should be pulled as soon as they come in.The human mouth does not have the capacity [room] for them.Usually your dentist will explain this to you when you visit.

Immediately, if you like. Just don't run the shower water into your mouth.

You're going to want to wait for the incisions to heal. Trust me on this one.

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.
