If you have straight but gapped teeth and your wisdom teeth have not come out yet will the wisdom teeth help close the gaps when they erupt?

It might help a little, but if your father or mother have gapped teeth, you probably will too.

AnswerWhen your wisdom teeth will come out, if you have space, they might close some gaps between your back teeth. It is less likely that they will help closing the gaps between your anterior teeth.

To do so, it is better to do an orthodontic treatment.

I had gaps between my anterior teeth, like my grandfather did. It was corrected by braces in middle school within only a year. My wisdom teeth came in and still have plenty of room. I found that my teeth tend to move outward, so I still wear braces overnight at least once a week, fifteen years later.

AnswerAlthough my teeth are straight, I have gaps in them due to their shape (normal teeth are triangular, mine are square) or so my dentist says. Because the teeth are already straight (not needing braces^), my dentist said the solution to my gaps is porcelain veneers. He also said that braces would only force my teeth together, and that they would constantly be moving back to their original place because they were already in the correct position. I had my wisdom teeth removed while they were still impacted. My mother also only had gaps in her upper front teeth, and when her wisdom teeth erupted they pushed her upper and bottom front teeth together, eliminating the gaps, but also causing her bottom teeth to become crooked. Waiting for you wisdom teeth to erupt is not the best solution to the gapped teeth, seeing as how they could cause other complications.

No, it is a common belief that they will close gaps but trust me it does not work that way. Wisdom teeth are generally removed when they start to erupt especially considering they have no function and the high possibility of them impacting on other teeth or risk of infections. It is best to get braces for gaps but a product called Invisalign will work too as another option.

Wisdom teeth start to erupt at about 18 years of age. Thus the term wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth erupt in the four corners of the mouth. They do not follow the regular path ofMilk teeth first followed by your permanent teeth. One usually gets their Wisdom teeth in adulthood. Wisdom eruption often causes problems with your mouth. It can be painful and might need extraction if they fail to erupt in the right direction. They sometimes fail to erupt in the correct direction which causes pain as it pushes other teeth to make space for itself to erupt.

Not all people get their wisdom teeth. Some get all four wisdom teeth, some get just one, and others have some that never erupt.

the wisdom tooth is the last tooth to erupt which erupts any time around 18 to 24 years of age.

The wisdom teeth are also called third molars. They are normally the last teeth in each arch (upper and lower) to erupt. Sometimes the third molars don't erupt (become impacted) because there is not enough space but we'll save that discussion for another question. The third molars are sometimes called wisdom teeth because they normally erupt around 18 years of age, when teens are supposed to be turning the corner to adulthood and "wisdom".

Because they don't erupt until early adulthood -- the theoretical age at which one stops behaving like an idiot.

very close when they don't erupt. Don't u know that dumbo

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.

I had a tooth erupt last week, the final week of May, so...no.

Wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the final teeth to erupt; they usually come in when a person is in their late teens or early twenties. If you infected wisdom teeth, you can contact wisdomteethsydney.com.au

Yes. Most people do not get their wisdom teeth (3rd molars) until they are in their late teens or early twenty's. However, some people's wisdom teeth erupt as early as age twelve. To be sure it is a wisdom tooth, check with your dentist. Edit: Yup, I'm 13 and my wisdom teeth are growing in.

i think so because if a earthquake is close to a volcano the the shaking from a earthquake will put a crack in the volcano lava chamber and then the volcano erupt.

Depends on how close you are. If very close, then do everything you can to change your location quickly. If very far away, then nothing at all.

They are generally thought to be called wisdom teeth because they appear so late-much later than the other teeth, at an age where people are presumably wiser than as a child, when the other teeth erupt.

Wisdom teeth actually begin forming before the age of 10, and if they erupt it is between the age of 17 years to 21 years. Not everyone though gets wisdom teeth and some get more than one! A widom teeth is known as a 3rd molar, they are an extra teeth, not needed for your mouth. In some cases people remove their wisdom teeth.

The age is irrelevant. It all depends on the position of the teeth and also how much room is available for them to erupt.

It is possible for your wisdom teeth never to erupt. They probably are there, but they're buried under your gums. The word, "impacted" is used to describe a tooth that develops lying on its side or in some other strange position.

Its not that common but it does happen. I myself and my daughter got our wisdom teeth at 12/13 years old, the normal time to get them is 17/21 years of age but you can get them earlier or later than that.

Yes, it's ok for your wisdom teeth to erupt while you are pregnant. But make sure they don't cause infection by rinsing your mouth with water and salt every day!

As mankind has evolved over the millenniums, the human jaw has grown smaller. The third molars (wisdom teeth) are remnants of a time when the jaw was much larger. Consequently, there often is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to properly erupt, and they become impacted.

What makes volcanoes erupt is due to the friction between tectonic plates.

Himalayas mountains never erupt and they will not erupt.
