Why do dentists give differing views on whether I need to extract my wisdom teeth, and does it mean that one of them is wrong?
DearHi. Thanks for your questions about wisdom tooth removal. This is the ones I was told from my clinic sometimes. For wisdom tooth removal, there is no right or wrong answers as there is no guidelines in Singapore hence it really depends on dentist who you get treatment. Their own dental philosophies, experiences, collaboration with other dental treatment (expecially braces) etc. In fact, there are quiet some of complication because of delayed wisdom tooth removal which can be obtained from previous experiences by indicisual.
Thanks for your question about smile lines after braces with tooth extraction. There are two treatment option can be considered for this case. 1. Botox treatment - Botox treatment around nose and lip area can help to reduce to lift the smile line, which will help reduce the smile line. but overall diagnosis should be performed first before starting botox treatment. 2. Crown lengthening - Crown lengthening (tooth crown lengthening) can be considered if tooth is relatively small.
Thanks for the question. I understand your concerns about your profile change after braces treatment because of 4 premolar extraction. In braces, 4 premolar extraction is normally required for crowding or protrusion (Upper or Lower or Upper & Lower) cases. 1.
