Generally speaking, the sooner teeth are replaced the better. Your own dentist can probably give you a more accurate guess.

What do I do if I want a total tooth extraction and false teeth?

What do I do if I want a total tooth extraction and false teeth?

Visit the dentist: First, you need to visit a dentist and have them do a thorough examination, including x-rays to determine your overall dental health. Then they will have a long discussion with you about the advisability of such treatment, what to expect, etc. This is not to be taken lightly, as many people with false teeth are not happy with them.

Sometimes: Sometimes an extracted tooth can be replaced immediately after an extraction. More often than not, it is better to wait until the bone has filled in either partially or completely before placing an implant. There are a lot of factors to consider for example, the amount of remaining bone, whether or not there was an infection present, the type or hardness of the bone, the position of your remaining teeth, whether or not the extracted tooth is a lower or upper tooth and whether or not it is a front or back tooth. Each case has to be evaluated individually and I would suggest that you discuss this with your dentist in order to make an intelligent decision as to when to replace that missing tooth.

Why do my other teeth hurt after wisdom tooth extraction?

Why do my other teeth hurt after wisdom tooth extraction?

Referred Pain: Pain from the extraction site may be referred down the nerve trunk that innervates the other teeth. In addition, pressure from the actual extraction may have inflamed the adjacent teeth. Pain meds should help your discomfort, and a call to your surgeon is in order if they don't.

Start with some anti-inflammatory meds like Ibuprofen or Tylenol (acetaminophen). If these do not make it feel better, you may want to return to the surgeon and have them evaluate the situation.

After a wisdom tooth extraction is it normal for my teeth on the same side as the extraction to hurt?

After a wisdom tooth extraction is it normal for my teeth on the same side as the extraction to hurt?

Yes: Most likely this is referred pain. The same nerves go to several of the teeth, so if the area of the extraction is starting to ache, then several other teeth may seem like they are also hurting. However, if the pain worsens or doesn't resolve, call the dentist. A local infection is also possible after an extraction.

Should I be concerned if my two canine teeth are a bit sharper than normal people's. Will I need a tooth extraction or will a dentist just have to file them?

Pointy cuspids: I wouldn't be concerned about sharper than normal canine teeth. It certainly doesn't require extraction. Yes, they can be easily reshaped. Discuss this issue with your own dentist for best advice.

Tooth extraction: This sounds like you have a dry socket or an infection, but it needs to be seen clinically and visually to make an accurate diagnosis. Call your dentist or surgeon ASAP for an examination.

Why do I have front teeth crowding after wisdom tooth extraction?

Why do I have front teeth crowding after wisdom tooth extraction?

Unrelated: There are lots of reasons for front teeth to crowd, most of them developmental, but removing wisdom teeth is not one of them. Crowding of front teeth is often noticed about the same time that wisdom teeth require rx, but removing wisdom teeth does not cause anterior crowding. Crowding will progress unless addressed. You have to see an orthodontist, there's no way around it. Go now please.

My upper teeth are causing extreme pain after wisdom tooth extraction, why is that?

My upper teeth are causing extreme pain after wisdom tooth extraction, why is that?

Collateral damage: During the wisdom tooth extraction (complicate) a lot of pressure is placed on the adjacent tissue: gums, chicks and neighbor teeth, TMJ and muscles. It creates the inflammation and consequently pain. The good news that in the majority cases the pain is transitory. If concerned, please call your oral surgeon/ dentist for post extraction consultation.

My lower teeth are tingling after wisdom tooth extraction last week. Is this normal? How long is the recovery time? Everything else if fine.

My lower teeth are tingling after wisdom tooth extraction last week. Is this normal? How long is the recovery time? Everything else if fine.

Paresthesia: Is a rarer complication of lower dental implant placement. See your surgeon for post-op evaluation and a proper parasthesia treatment as early as possible. The sooner rather than later for a better outcome. Good luck.
