If a dentist recommends that you remove your second molar tooth instead of your wisdom tooth is that a bad choice if the second molar is in very bad condition?
I'd follow the advice of the dentist, since the wisdom tooth can move forward after the second molar is removed.

If a second molar tooth has been pulled can it be possible that it will be filled with a new wisdom tooth that is slowly coming in and will it slowly fill the gap?
I had my molar pulled 10 - 15 years ago and my wisdom tooth did come down and fill in the space. It is slightly slanted but I have never had any problems with it. . Answer . It is possible for a wisdom tooth to eventually erupt into the space but they will generally come in at a slant and creat…e problems with the health of the gums. This slanting causes a large space that is very difficult to keep clean and we usually see advance bone loss happen in this are that can affect the existing 1st molor as well. In today's world the best alternative would be a dental implant to replace the extracted 2nd molar. ( Full Answer )
Is it possible to get braces on a wisdom tooth and a second molar only to close a space where a first molar was removed?
Answer . I'm a bit surprised at your question. I can't believe any orthodontist would put braces on a wisdom tooth. Unless you're asking because you want to have this done. \n. \nSecondly, closing the space that a lost tooth has caused is asking a lot. Having a tooth removed will most likely …throw off the alignment of all of your teeth. \n. \nI'm not a dentist but it sounds like you need a crown or a post where the missing tooth was (or will be).

Answer . \n. \nThere are a number of potential causes of dental infection. Sometimes an impacted wisdom tooth can compromise the back root of the second molar. This would typically only be diagnosed after the wisdom tooth was extracted.\n. \nThe infected molar may not be related to the extrac…tion. It may have had asymptomatic decay or periodontal disease before the impacted wisdom tooth was diagnosed and extracted. Usually, it is better to extract wisdom teeth prior to restoring or treating adjacent teeth because of the possiblility of damage or injury to the adjacent teeth during the extraction.\n. \nWhile most dentists are very conscienteous and want to avoid complications in their procedures, complications do sometimes arise in spite of the dentist's best efforts. It is best to allow your dentist to manage these complications or refer you to a qualified specialist for treatment.. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nYour question is best answered by a qualified orthodontist (dentist who specializes in straightening teeth). It would not be unreasonable to seek the opinions of several orthodontists. Moving a third molar into a second molar position has been done, but the only way to determine if …it is appropriate in a specific case is to ask several qualified experts. ( Full Answer )
Answer . antibiotics. Answer . The above is true. When you have decay in a tooth and you let it go too long it begins to affect the nerve and air also can get in through the cavity and that's what causes the pain. Depending on how bad the tooth is your dentist MAY put you on antibiotics, but …generally once the cavity is worked on by your dentist the problem is solved.. that may be true but when all but a little bit of your teeth is there take both percocet and a antibiotics these two combined will help ease the pain and get rid of any infection in or on the teeth ( Full Answer )
Your molar tooth has an abscess and it should be extracted because on that side your wisdom tooth is pushing beside the abscessed tooth Is an implant or bridge better?
Answer . You can only put a bridge on if there is a tooth on each side to support it. Therefore, a bridge cannot replace a wisdom tooth, because it's the last one on the dental arch.. If you keep your wisdom tooth and you need to extract the molar right before, then you can replace that molar wi…th a bridge.. In any other case, an implant would be a better treatment..

If the wisdom tooth is really bad and the dentists recommending extracting it do you have to go along with this?
Answer . No you don't but you will want to. Some individuals do not have to have theirs removed but most do as they become impacted, decayed etc. If he is recommending it be done and you don't do it it can cause more than just a sore mouth problems for you - a bad tooth that disperses toxins or p…oisons such as they are get into your system and can make you very ill in other ways. It would be in your best interest to have it done - feel lucky I personally had all four removed at once and they had to remove bone to get them out as they were not nearly even ready to come in but causing me problems - now older I am so glad I had them done then. Good Luck - its not that bad. ( Full Answer )
Wisdom teeth are not necessarily bad. They do, however, frequently cause crowding in the mouth, forcing the molars forward resulting in crooked teeth. They can also become impacted or fail to fully erupt (emerge through the gums), causing discomfort and potential for decay or gum disease. Dentists o…ften recommend removal of wisdom teeth in younger people if problems are foreseen; if you make it through your twenties with no troubles, you'll most likely be fine. If you have any issues with any of your wisdom teeth, most dentists will recommend removal of all four, as asymmetry in the mouth can result in other problems. By all accounts, extraction of the wisdom teeth kind of sucks. ( Full Answer )
If the tooth is an upper molar, more than likely it is a sinus infection, not a bad tooth. The roots of the upper teeth often sit right in the floor of the sinus, and when the sinus becomes congested, it can exert pressure on the nerve that goes into the tooth. This can feel like a toothache. See… your dentist to be sure. ( Full Answer )
Wisdom teeth usually begin to surface during young adulthood,between ages 18 and 22. Oftentimes, dentists will tell patientswith surfacing wisdom teeth that they need to be removed, sincewisdom teeth can crowd existing teeth by forcing them to scrunchtogether.
Normally, there is not enough room in your mouth for the wisdom teeth to come in. If you've lost some back teeth for one reason or another, the wisdon tooth can come in with no problem.
The first molars that children get are called "pre-molars" and they come through at around 24 months of age. They are baby teeth and will eventually fall out to be replaced by adult teeth. The first 'adult' molars come through at around 6years of age, the next lot at about 12yrs & the last lot (if t…hey make it past the gum line) are the wisdom teeth which come between the ages of 17 - 21 generally.

Ideally, they live on as your rear-most molars. Sometimes they are loosened in the process and end up needing to be removed ... but not often.
You should wait at least 4 or 5 days after a molar tooth extractionbefore you go swimming. This activity can get your blood pumpingfast and dislodge the clot giving you dry socket.

Sorry. Pain is going to be felt. You may be able to dull the pain some. Use the over the counter ora-jel. It may help with the pain of pulling the tooth out so the new one may grow.
IF you really want to know what is under your gums, easiest way is to get an xray. However if it is not painful and bothersome leave it aloneeven if it is a wisdom tooth. Remember that wisdom tooth may erupt perfectly normally even without you yourself knowing it. So , if it ain't troubling yo…u, do not trouble it or trouble with it.! ( Full Answer )
A full dental hygiene routine - brushing your teeth, flossing, rinsing with mouthwash - at least a couple times per day. A bad odor from a tooth may be an indication of some sort of infection, in which an anti-biotic is necessary for both the infection and the resulting bad odor to clear away.
keep wiggling it and itll come out. Itll probably hurt a little bit, but the more you play the less itll hurt
no you will have to go to a dentist because it will really pain you if you pull it out and it cant come out by itself its so unlikely i had to go to the dentist for mine too
I don't think so, but ask your dentist. My dentist insisted on pulling one of my molars, because he said , correctly, that he could move it with his finger and it would only cause me trouble, if left in.
It crushes and grinds food to smaller pieces so the surface area of the food increases therefore enzymes work better to digest the food.
The front molar teeth fall out but the very back ones keep growing and if you loose the very back ones then you will never get them back. You will need False Teeth.
Well my bottom 4 front teeth are cramming together because my wisdom teeth are coming in. They were fine before then but also I have heard it that they will mess your jaw up. probably after the pressure of your other teeth forcing it to stay back by the jaw bone. I'm really not sure though. Sounds l…ike whoever asked this question is as scared of the dentist as I am. ( Full Answer )
Grinds up food so it is soft and small enough to go down the oesophagus
A wisdom tooth is one of the three molars. A molar is defined as a tooth with four cusps or points, and the wisdom tooth is simply the last molar to erupt and farthest back in the jaw.
Yes! The orthodontist I saw growing up would pull 12 year molars, leaving room for wisdom teeth to grow. I had my 12 yr molars pulled when I was a tween and my wisdom teeth came in around my early 20s. I have never had a problem with them. Not sure why all dentists don't practice this - my only thou…ght is that it dentists make more $$ for the surgery. ( Full Answer )
There should not be any problems at all, if you have some discomfort, rinse well with some salt water, and take a couple of Tylenol you will be fine in a couple of days, if you still experience pain, call your dentist and tell him about it.
No, this is not true. The cause of bad breath is an unclean mouth. One should always clean his teeth after taking food. The bits of food that remain hidden between teeth are the major cause of bad breath. Tooth cavities are a also a reason for bad breath. So , remember to brush your teeth twice a d…ay, esp before going to bed. and have those cavities filled up. use a dental floss, it surely helps. carry some cinnamon in your pocket :) Ashfaq Khan ( Full Answer )

Large bump in my gum between the second last molar and the tooth before it. It is painful when I push on it. I have had my wisdom teeth pulled out. Does anyone know what it is?
Depending on the circumstances for the wisdom teeth (reason for removal, location of the teeth prior to extraction, age of the patient when removed) could mean different things for the concern you are having. Recent extraction could sometimes have "bone spurs" working their way out almost causing a …sliver in your finger effect. If the wisdom tooth was impacted and deteriated the bone behind the second molar, the bone "defect" could be present causing an area to possibly abscess around the back side or distal of the second molar. Sometimes the most logical explanation is that a popcorn hull or something foreign gets in the gum tissue behind the second molar causing an inflammatory response in the tissue. Recommend keeping the area clean, if a problem persists and it get more painful, see your dentist for a x-ray and evaluation. ( Full Answer )
It all depends on the judgment of the dentist. Sometimes sutures are indicated, sometimes they are not. Placing sutures when they are not indicated can lead to potential complications.
If you have the right anesthetic it shouldn't but the area where the tooth used to be will hurt slightly for a few days after it is pulled out
You wait awhile, and you get another one in its place usually. At one time you would also get a quarter under your pillow if youput the tooth there and didn't try to wake up in the night to catchthe tooth fairy.

I had my wisdom teath removed to help with the pain in my ears .(not that it helped) the aria around my mouth was a little swolen and my mouth felt dead but the next day it was better. All you have to do is eat alot of ice cream!! :-)\n
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 ha…ve never had any trouble with my wisdom teeth. ( Full Answer )
Depends on the person... I know people who had to take painkillers for days afterwards, and their face swelled up like a chipmunk. Then some other people are feeling back to normal as soon as the freezing wears off! The amount of damage that needs to be done to the gums has a lot to do with how much… pain you will be in afterwards, which is why every case is very different. ( Full Answer )
i would think yes because all your teeth have a milk and a big tooth so yes
tie a knot around the base of the molar at the gums where the tooth is a little smaller... then tie the floss around the knob of a door, hold your mouth open an lean your head back a Little. gotta make a clean exit area. then slam the door shut...
If it is an adult molar (not a baby tooth), no - once it's gone, it is gone forever.
You should not lose the one in the back of it. The one in front of it is just like losing a tooth. The moler hurts when getting it out. You can't lose wisdom teeth!
Incisors are located at the front of the face, touching the lips, and are flat sharper teeth. Molars are located towards the back of the jaw touching the buccinator--muscle of the cheek, and have a large, bulky surface.
well it is the wisdom tooth but some people call it the 2nd molar tooth. And hope that answers your question.
The second day after a wisdom tooth extraction, the wounds are still healing. Drinking alcohol is not recommended until the mouth has completely healed from the wisdom teeth extractions.
Unfortunately, there is no way to "make" your wisdom teeth grow instraight. If your other teeth are straight, then they may grow instraight. If you have a tendency towards crooked teeth, they theymay grow crooked too. The good news is that not everyone has tohave them removed if they grow in crooked…. If there is sufficientroom and they will not cause problems with the other teeth, theymay not have to be removed. With no 2nd molar, there might beenough room that they do not have to be removed. The best person tomake this determination is your dentist. ( Full Answer )
In cases where it is decayed beyond scope of saving then inteenagers who have 3rd molar still erupting this kind of method isemployed.
I have been suggested to undergo wisdom tooth removal. I am sorry but I am scared of dentists. Can someone just recommend some medications?
You would choose an oral surgeon who would administer anesthesiaduring the tooth removal. You will be sleepy afterwards with noreal memory of the process. If you avoid the surgery, you may findyourself in pain and then still need to have the tooth removedbecause of infection. Some things in life you… just have to endureand not avoid. ( Full Answer )
