Eventually. The gums will heal in about a week. The bone takes longer, up to three months. If there are holes in your gums, it takes longer for them to become normal because of the healing process of the bone.

Does wisdom teeth extraction require sedation?

Wisdom teeth extraction can, but does not always, require sedation. In some cases, local anesthetic in the gums can be used instead of general anesthesia. Full sedation is typically only required if one's wisdom teeth become impacted and need to be surgically removed.

Should you get your wisdom teeth extraction with a cold?

No. I'm not a dentist, so I couldn't tell you that a cold will directly interfere with the surgery. However, the recovery may be more difficult with a cold. With a stuffy nose, you may be forced to breathe through your mouth. After wisdom teeth extraction, you will have stitches in your mouth and spaces where your wisdom teeth were. It is a good idea not to allow air to reach these areas because they could create a "dry socket", where nerve endings and possibly bone would be exposed and would be extremely painful. Infection is also more likely with a cold. My advice? Try to get your wisdom teeth extraction scheduled after you are over the cold and at full strength.

How long is full recovery from teeth extraction?

Is it true that some people have two sets of wisdom teeth?

It is certain that humans get two full sets of teeth: "milk teeth" as toddlers and "adult teeth" in their late childhood. Most of the time 'wisdom teeth' are replaced by their adult counterparts - but because some wisdom teeth never break the gumline (referred to as impacted) it may appear as a second set when the milk set is pushed clear by the adult set.

Are you supposed to lose your back teeth?

The back teeth on top and bottom are generally called 'wisdom teeth'. Wisdom teeth are part of your full set of teeth but in many cases they have problems: -They grow deeply into bone -They may come in at unusual angles -They may put excessive pressure on the other molars -They sometimes screw up existing dental repairs or orthodontic work. -And last, the wisdom teeth are the hardest to care for and have a reputation for cavities and gum disease. Many dentists, orthodontists, and oral surgeons simply suggest that you have the wisdom teeth removed, sometimes even before they emerge from the gums. Wisdom teeth have a purpose -- when people expected to lose most of their teeth in middle age, the wisdom teeth would emerge and allow a few more years of chewing. This writer's grandfather had his teeth pulled due to gum disease in his late 60s, and the wisdom teeth came in at that time.

After you have your wisdom teeth pulled is it normal for something white to be in the hole?

AnswerIt could either be some food stuck in the hole, or it can be the blood cloth that is forming. If it was infected, you would see white pus coming out of it.Full recovery should take three months and you would feel the holes for a few weeks.Answer1 week after my extraction I noticed that the hole turned a little bit whitish in the center. This is part of the healing process, think of it as a scab.

Does everyone have wisdom teeth?

Not necessarily. Some hypodontic individuals do not have a full set of 32 permanent tooth buds. But the average human will have 4 third molars (wisdom teeth), even though they may not develop or erupt. About 3 out of 4 people have wisdom teeth grow in. Some people have small mouths, so there is no room, and this can damage the gums unless they are removed. The removal of wisdom teeth is often complex due to their position and a tendency to form curved roots.

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.

What is the cost of wisdom teeth extraction with anesthesia?

The cost of removing wisdom teeth can vary greatly, depending on a number of factors:1. How many teeth are being removed? Sometimes not all wisdom teeth require removal.2. How impacted are the wisdom teeth? Full boney impactions are usually the most costly because they are often the most complicated procedures. This can usually be determined by the dentist or oral surgeon by viewing the teeth on an x-ray.3. Are there any conditions, such as underlying medical conditions that will complicate the procedure and contribute to the cost?4. The type of anesthesia used can also affect the cost. Will it be local anesthesia only? IV sedation? Or full general anesthesia? Discuss your options with the surgeon beforehand.5. Is the surgeon a contracted provider on your insurance plan? If so, he may be obliged to take a lower fee than he might otherwise.A simple surgical extraction of a single wisdom tooth with local anesthesia can cost just a couple of hundred dollars, while multiple full boney impacted extractions with general anesthesia can cost a few thousand dollars. In any case, you are entitled to know what the upper end of your cost will be before the procedure is done. Talk to your surgeon and get firm answers before you agree to the surgery.One last piece of advice: Beware of bargains in parachutes and oral surgery.
