Not everyone has their wisdom teeth removed. If you do have to have your wisdom teeth removed, find a doctor that knows what they are doing and try to get them all removed at the same time. Most doctors will use laughing gas for sedation. Some doctors will put you fully to sleep to remove the wisdom teeth. Recovery is about three to four days with a soft diet.

Can the removal of wisdom teeth cause gaps between the remaining teeth?

Yes, as the teeth can shift in the bone when the wisdom teeth are no longer there to keep them in place. Yes, but in a minimal way. The gaps that can be mostly noticed are in the back area. Rarely front teeth are affected.

The difference in symptoms of between an abscess and wisdom teeth?

The removal of one's wisdom teeth is usually the cause of an abcess, also known as a dry socket. An abcess is extremely painful and can prevent comfortable eating or sleeping.

What are the benefits of wisdom teeth?

Way back when, wisdom teeth were used for chewing harder materials that today we cannot digest (aka bark). An appendix was used for digesting bark. Wisdom teeth were very helpful when we were cavemen, but not now. We have evolved to not need wisdom teeth anymore, therefore they are pulled out. Many people don't even have wisdom teeth. I had three.

What are the kinds of teeth?

The kinds of teeth are the incisors (your front teeth) next are the canines (the sharp teeth) then your pre-molars and molars ( the ones all the way to the back, they could be called cheek teeth since they are at your cheeks) and maybe your wisdom tooth (not everybody has wisdom teeth) By the way, whenever you get pain all the way to the back of your mouth it means your wisdom tooth is trying to grow but it can't since it doesn't have enough space in your mouth.

Can you still get Invisalign if you have your wisdom teeth?

They are going to have to take out the wisdom teeth in order for you to have in Invisalign because, with your wisdom teeth still in your mouth after the Invisalign Tray set is all done with your teeth will just shift back to the way they were. That's what my dentist told me. It would also be in your best interest to get all four of your wisdom teeth out at the same time, so you only have to go through the pain of it once.

Why do they pull wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth get pulled out to prevent pain and discomfort. If the wisdom teeth don't have enough room in the back of your mouth and they grow in they will push your existing teeth out of the way and cause them to be mashed together. They can also grow in sideways, this is known as being 'impacted'. Sores can grow on your gums and become infected, leading to major problems down the road.

If you have straight but gapped teeth and do not have your wisdom teeth yet will the wisdom teeth help close the gap when they come in?

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.

How much to remove one wisdom tooth?

I just recently had my wisdom teeth out and it cost about $250 a tooth. Don't let cost get in the way of getting them out if possible. I was told to get my wisdom teeth out about five years ago and since I waited so long my wisdom teeth pushed up against the molars they were next to and damaged them so they had to be removed as well. I was also getting infections in them. For me, the initial price (For just the wisdom teeth) was $2300. That's everything the anesthesia, removal, etc. Fortunately my oral surgeon told me to ask the receptionists if there was any kind of payment plan or anyway I could knock the price down a bit. They were able to lower the price to $2237, which was even lower than the inital price for just the wisdom teeth alone! Make sure that when you go to have your teeth removed you ask about a payment plan. Most people go into the health-care field to help people.

Can you get a wisdom tooth pulled if it hasn't come in all the way?

Yes. In fact, most wisdom teeth are removed because there is not enough room for them to fit in the mouth. True. But if it is beneath the gum tissue it will be a surgical extraction that may require an incision and bone removal. Many times this is most comfortable under an IV anesthesia, but can be done with local anesthesia.

Is there any possible way to get away with smoking 3 days after wisdom teeth removal?

I suppose. Smoking shortly after having your wisdom teeth removed simply delays the healing process and increases the risk of having a complication call a dry socket. This is an extremely painful condition that is easily treated by the surgeon. Smoking does not guarantee you will get a dry socket, it only increases the risk. Go ahead, live on the edge, if you enjoy the most excruciating pain of your life!?
