I had all four wisdom teeth taken out when I was 15. Does this early maturation of teeth mean that the rest of my bones are mature and done growing?
Not necessarily: Bone growth in girls is more related to your hormones. Usually growth stops within 2 years after a girl starts her period. Dental eruption doesn't seem to correlate as much.See 1 more doctor answer
22 years old and recently had my wisdom teeth removed and on hydrocodone for several days. I just got my period two weeks early. What does this mean?
No space: If wisdom teeth don't come in, it typically means there is insufficient space for them. They should be evaluated by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to determine if they are showing signs of problems. In some cases they can be monitored, but in many cases, extraction is indicated.See 1 more doctor answer

Depends: Wisdom teeth can come in any time in a wide age range, and keeping in mind that everyone develops at a different rate, this probably isn't a major worry.

Post operative pain: When oral surgery is performed, especially at your age, there is this entity called "pain on healing". It can take about one year for new bone to fill in after having your wisdom teeth removed. It is not uncommon for this type of healing pain around your other teeth to occur. As always, it would be advisable to schedule a post operative visit with your oral surgeon to rule out anything else.
I have two small spots next to my wisdom teeth and its becoming a problem because it hurt, what does this mean?
Dentist question: I defer this to your dentist. I cannot say what they are for spots, unfortunately.
Not likely: The vast majority of headaches are usually caused by muscle strain or too much blood flow. When wisdom teeth are impacted the can cause symptoms of pain in the area of the impaction on occasion. Seeing a dentist or oral surgeon for a panoramic xray and evaluation of your wisdom teeth can help determine if you need to have them pulled or if they may be contributing to your headaches.See 1 more doctor answer
Impaction: An impacted tooth is one that fails to erupt into the dental arch within the specific time. Because impacted teeth do not erupt, they are retained throughout the individual's lifetime unless extracted or exposed surgically. Http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/tooth_impaction.
Getting my lower wisdom teeth extracted so that means surgery. When it's done will I be able to drive myself home?

I'm having my wisdom teeth extracted on friday and I've been told im getting general anaesthesia what does that exactly mean/what will happen?
Completely out: General anesthesia involves giving medication that completely puts you asleep to the point that you will not be able to breath on your own so they will insert a tube into your throat and use a breathing machine (ventilator) to help you breath. This is the same anesthesia they use for major abdominal surgeries.See 2 more doctor answers

My wisdom teeth does this weird thing where they peek through my gums, but then go back into my gums. What does that mean? Can I still get them pulled
Gum tissue growth: Your gum tissue is thinly covering your wisdom teeth. Every now and then it thins out to the point of exposing the tooth. Then, it grows back over. You can certainly have them extracted. In fact, it is probably the prudent thing to do. It is possible to develop a gum infection in the area if the situation continues.See 1 more doctor answer
