Hello! my upper right wisdom is not yet fully erupted and i'm already 23. Any ideas as to why my wisdom does that?

Hello! my upper right wisdom is not yet fully erupted and i'm already 23. Any ideas as to why my wisdom does that?

Yes,It can happen: Wisdom teeth can erupt between age of 17 to 32.They would erupt only if there is enough space available in your jaw.Sometimes wisdom teeth remain impacted or unerupted for a long time.In some instances, they may remain unerupted till there is a space created by loss of adjacent teeth.In some instances, if they are impacted very high in the jaw, they may not even erupt.

It's been 36 hours since I had my wisdoms out. I smoke but take small puffs just once a day. Today was my first time by the way. Is that ok?

It's been 36 hours since I had my wisdoms out. I smoke but take small puffs just once a day. Today was my first time by the way. Is that ok?

Could be better: The reason for not smoking after oral surgery is to avoid raising oral temperature and to decrease further infection potential. Is a good reason to quit right now, if not , try sips of a cold mouth wash afterwards.

Wisdom teeth: Ideally, wisdom teeth that either will not be able to erupt into their correct position or have erupted but are, or are likely to cause problems should be removed between the ages of 16 and 19.

No telling: The average age of wisdom teeth erupting is around 18-21. It can vary greatly. My son needed his out at 15. I have had patients that had them starting to come through at 40.

How painful is it after wisdom extraction?

Depends: With any surgical procedure there is some level of discomfort or pain. The unknown variable is how each person perceives and responds to pain and discomfort.

How long does the pain last for wisdom extractions?

Wisdom tooth pain: It depends. If you are not infected with a topical bone infection about 3-4days. If your teeth extracted were under the bone then longer. If your wisdom teeth were very mis-aligned sideways then longer. If you should get a very rotten sweet odor in your mouth, then you have a topical bone infection. See the doc, they'll fix it right up. In spite of every thing you' heal up okay , you will be fine.
