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).
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.
I am 20 years old,i have placed braces on the upper mandible.My lower left wisdom tooth was removed in the beginning of the treatment because it grew to the seventh tooth.What should i do?To Pull out left side wisdom tooth before placing the lower mandible braces,or to put the braces and after the treatment to pull it out (daemon system self-ligating)
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 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.
