When it comes to wisdom teeth, there are always several things to consider such as 1. Angle of the tooth - Is it impacted? What is the extent of the impaction? 2. Proximity of the wisdom tooth to the nerve and sinus space - For cases where the wisdom tooth is intertwined with the inferior alveolar nerve (this applies to LOWER wisdom teeth only) then it may be advisable to do it with an oral maxillofacial surgeon. 3. Number of roots and anatomy of the tooth - when wisdom teeth have hooked/curved or multiple roots, it creates more resistance for the tooth to be removed.
When wisdom teeth are taken out, minimal wound closure ie gums merging together to close the socket hole usually takes about 2 weeks. Signs and symptoms that the socket is not healing includes 1. Pain - dull ache that does not decrease or increases over the next few days 2. Bad taste / smell - usually a sign of a dry socket if this starts only 3 -5 days after the wisdom tooth has been taken out 3. Swelling / bruising - usually dissipates in 1 - 2 weeks but if it stagnates then it is best to consult with your dentist Tips to help with wisdom teeth healing include 1.
Yes it is definitely possible to address your dental needs! Orthodontic treatment whether via metal / ceramic braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign can help to straighten out your teeth, correct open and under bites. Braces and invisalign address the dental needs, however this does not change the shape of the jaw though in some cases people find a slight alteration in their face shape based on the idea that your teeth are the supporting structure for the outer surface ie your face and lips. However skeletal / jaw bone structure remains unchanged.
