Two Wisdom Teeth
2 seperate problems: First see general dentist to make sure problem is wisdom teeth and if so get a referral for an oral surgeon. After wisdom teeth are removed go back to dentist for restoration of front teeth. Make the first appointment asap before the problem gets worse. In the mean time rinse with warm salt water several times a day, brush 2x daily, eat softer foods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Talk to Dentist: Most teeth extractions can be done under local anesthesia with a cooperative patient. If there are especially impacted teeth then some sedation might be indicated. I don't even remember the procedure after a little dose of valium. If you have concerns please contact your dentist and discuss these fears with him. Good luck. A general anesthetic will clear very quickly (within hours). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can i get away with not having my wisdom teeth removed? I have two wisdom teeth that have never erupted that my dentist says i need to have removed. They're not causing my any pain or problems, and they've been there for some time. Will i be fine if i don
Doctor's advice: Why avoid the dentist's advice? Impacted wisdom teeth do not have to cause pain or "problems" that you would notice. They may be creating destruction of other teeth, may have cavities, may contribute to gum disease, etc. And you aren't aware of it. Get a second opinion for peace of mind or get them out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How common is dry socket after having a wisdom tooth extracted? I'm going to have two wisdom teeth out in a little over week, and have heard horror stories from friends about how they had dry socket. Is this common, and something i really need to worry ab
The : The socket is the hole in the bone where the tooth has been removed. After a tooth is pulled, a blood clot forms in the socket to protect the bone and nerves underneath. Sometimes that clot can become dislodged or dissolve a couple of days after the extraction. That leaves the bone and nerve exposed to air, food, fluid, and anything else that enters the mouth. This can lead to infection and severe pain that can last for five or six days. Some people may be more likely to get dry socket after having a tooth pulled. That includes people who: smoke have poor oral hygiene have wisdom teeth pulled have greater than usual trauma during the tooth extraction surgery use birth control pills have a history of dry socket after having teeth pulled rinsing and spitting a lot or drinking through a straw after having a tooth extracted also can increase your risk of getting dry socket. Basically there is no one true answer to getting a dry socket but listen to your doctor and follow their post op instructions. Keep in mind even if you follow the instructions to a t, you still may get one. The chances are low. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No need to: There is no need to brush the extraction sites. Gently brushing the teeth that are adjacent to the sites should be fine at this time. It is unknown how difficult the procedure was, what type of incision was made, how fast you are healing, and if there are any sutures. For all those reasons you should still be very gentle. Your surgeon can guide you with further questions.. ...Read more
