Before And After Invisalign Overbite
If you feel up to it: If your surgery was complex and you have trouble opening your mouth, are swollen, in pain, etc. You may want to hold off until you heal a bit before trying. You should be able to start flossing the front teeth first and then as the surgical sites toward your molars heal you can start to floss there. Generally speaking you should be able to wear your retainer and floss within 1 to 2 weeks. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are clear plastic trays designed to tip your teeth into improved alignment. They are extremely esthetic, and must be worn >22 hours/day to be effective. They are not a braces substitute, are only about 60% as effective, take longer, are more expensive, and don't provide as much post-treatment stability. See an Orthodontic ...Read more
Extractions & Diet: No sutures and non-impacted wisdom teeth removed - whenever it feels comfortable. Sutures and impacted wisdom teeth removed - soft foods for a week then advance as tolerated. Much is dependent on what feels comfortable for you and range of motion. Semi-solids are always good to stick to for the first week before venturing back into firm solids. No need to rush. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long should I wait after the extraction of an upper 2nd premolar before a dental implant consultation?
Right Away: It is wise to have a consultation within a week after the extraction to MAP out expected timelines and treatment options, as well as review current xrays. It is never to early to start planning. Within as early as 3 months after extraction an implant can be placed for a single tooth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Consult with OS/DDS: I would recommend a consultation prior to having the teeth removed to answer your questions. The most important step is to have a consultation prior to surgery to have everything spelled out for you- pre and post-op instructions and what to expect. Local or general anesthetic, rides there and home, what you can eat/drink, meds, prior, etc. If being put to sleep- nothing 6 hours before. ...Read more
I have to get four front teeth extracted before I get braces. I'm self conscious, so how long will it take before the gaps close completely w/ braces?
When can patients generally return to regular flossing and brushing after molar extraction and bonegraft?
How about Wisdom extraction?
Oral hygiene: Good oral hygiene will reduce the chance of infection at the extraction sites, so it is very important that you should brush and floss even immediately after extraction and bone graft. Just be careful to avoid the areas that were treated. I recommend that you do not use toothpaste so that you do not have to rinse too much which could disrupt any clot that is forming. DO NOT use a water pik. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Good Oral Hygiene: Adjusting to life with braces means you must take good care of your teeth, and your and your braces. Brush around all the parts of your braces and every surface of your teeth. Also brush your tongue and the roof of your mouth. This should take 2-3 minutes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The same day: Maintaining good oral hygiene is important. You can brush all of your teeth except where your teeth were removed the day of surgery. I advise my patients to brush lightly over the extraction sites the first day after surgery and resume normal brushing on the second postoperative day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It varies widely!: Sometimes we see shifting in a matter of weeks or months, while other times it takes years. Every circumstance is different and we can't always predict what will happen nor when. Generally speaking, the sooner teeth are replaced the better. Your own dentist can probably give you a more accurate guess. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will getting my first premolars removed before braces because of an overbite change my face negatively?
3-4 days.: Follow the instructions given by the dentist or oral surgeon. Typically the first few days eat soft foods and when you are more comfortable you can transition to normal foods. Everyone is different. Eat what you are comfortable eating just don't overdo it. ...Read more
Usually right away: I tell my patients they can eat right away, but stay away from chips, nuts, popcorn - foods of this nature. Do not drink with a straw so you don't disturb the clot and end up with a dry socket. Also, be careful about extremely hot foods while your mouth is still anaesthetized. ...Read more
Get help ASAP: Don't wait, the longer you delay the less that can be done. See an orthodontic specialist, preferably the orthodontist that treated you, for review and management recommendations. It's not like a steel post in concrete. Teeth will shift as bone changes. See an orthodontist to minimize the change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can i use invisalign after using ceramic braces for one year after performing 4 X extraction...
to complete treatment of two years?
Whenever: There is no specific time period that is necessary to wait to have a filling done. It is mostly when you will be comfortable enough and able to open your mouth for further work and the urgency of your other dental treatment. Discuss this matter with your own dentist who is most aware of your particular dental needs. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
