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?

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. Secondly, 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. I'm not a dentist but it sounds like you need a crown or a post where the missing tooth was (or will be).

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

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.

Before I had braces on, it was suggested that I have my wisdom teeth removed, so I did. It could however depend on the individuals teeth, mine were quite crowded or as they call it impacted. You'll be glad you got braces, good for you. Very often, if wisdom teeth have no room to erupt, it is recommended to extract them following an orthodontic treatment.

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.

I had my wisdom teeth out first and then had my brace fitted once everything had healed, wisdom teeth can leave a rather big hole!

No. The braces will hold the teeth in place.

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.

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

Yes, I am 11, I originally got braces when I was 9.

No. I am 61 and just had a wisdom tooth removed. No problem.

They are called "eights" ~ extra wisdom teeth, which is uncommon. I had 2 on my upper set which I had removed. Consider yourself "special"=) I also have two more wisdom teeth in upper part

User Avatar

I'd follow the advice of the dentist, since the wisdom tooth can move forward after the second molar is removed.

The best possible answers are root canal operations, wisdom teeth taken out, braces, bridge operations, and any toothimplants...Hope thathelp.

No, you can't get a second set of wisdom teeth. Once a permanent tooth is removed, humans do not regrow them. However, I have seen patients who naturally have extra wisdom teeth, or extra permanent teeth elsewhere in 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. I have braces and my wisdom teeth came through and my otho hasn't done anything to them.

Wisdom teeth need to be surgically removed when they become bothersome to the person or they are crowding the other teeth. It is very painful to have them removed.

User Avatar

It is quite common to have wisdom teeth removed anywhere from 15 to 30.

I had two wisdom teeth removed yesterday. I have little swelling on both sides.

I think the cost is nearly $950 to get your wisdom teeth removed
