Braces After Tooth Extraction?
Hello, my sixth molar has to be removed because of a hole (left lower molars). My wisdom teeth were impacted right, and the doctor suggested pulling them out. Now, if I remove my sixth left gear, there is room, right? Can I still attach braces to straighten my lower teeth (in my right wisdom teeth also need to be removed). So for my lower jaw, I have four molar teeth. But I read in many cases. Wisdom teeth often have to be removed for stirrup installation. Does my left wisdom tooth need to be removed too? Thank you. R n r nI want to make sure that there are no voids. The problem is that when toothless, teeth will shift too, right? Now to avoid this I think to stirrup. There is an implant option but unfortunately I’m afraid. Thank you. Hopefully this question doesn’t sound strange to me. Hehe. Thanks again.
Hello Rhea, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Before I want to confirm first, what do you mean by the 6th molar is your back molars (before wisdom teeth)? If yes, then the tooth is a molar tooth 2. Wisdom tooth is called a molar tooth 3. Two molars that are located more forward and smaller in size are called premolar teeth 1 and 2. Total adult molars (including wisdom teeth) are 20 teeth, 5 on each right side, lattice, upper and lower oral cavity.
Tooth decay can occur due to the small teething space compared to the size of the tooth. Tooth extraction in people who want to install brackets is only done if the teething space is too small. Wisdom teeth do not have to always be pulled out if the growth is straight (not impacted) and there is sufficient growth space.
You should consult directly with your dentist. The dentist will measure the teething chamber and measure your teeth to determine whether a tooth extraction is necessary before attaching braces. Besides having to pay attention to the adequacy of teething space, the dentist also needs to ensure that after tidying the teeth can still close properly (no malocclusion) and also have to look at the aesthetics of the teeth (meaning that the front incisors are fixed in the middle of the face, the teeth are not too advanced or not too backward). Therefore, it must be examined directly in advance.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
