I have to have my wisdom teeth removed on Monday and I have a few questions about it. I wear contacts so would I have to wear my glasses, I mean would something maybe get in my eyes? Or could I wear ...
Some wisdom teeth are impacted and they have to break the jaw to remove the teeth.
It's unlikely unless you have a bad dentist. Most, if not all, jaws are pretty thick. I've had one removed and there was no problem with cracking my jaw. Tooth removal will bleed and you have to bite on gauze until it stops. And eat soft foods until it heals. Those are more likely problems.
Yes, it can. The chances of this are if you have an extemely difficult extraction. If this was to happen, it'd probably be cause by your doctors lack of care while putting pressure on the jaw (when I got mine removed, I remember the doctor warned me that there was going to be extreme pressure on my top left tooth). He pushed down very hard. One complication is also TMJ. This is (from what I remember) when the jaw is not aligned properly.
Possible. Can also hit the sinus cavity if upper. Could be bad.
Get a good dentist and you should be fine. Complications are fairly rare.
i know what you want me to say but sorry yes it can and dont worry you wont feel it till you stop taking to much meds
Nope had my pulled 3 mts ago they are tuff to get out though.And you will here them cracking but break your jaw no.
I actually had a very bad experience. I did not have my jaw broke however when my last wisdom tooth came in it was infected. The oral surgion put me on antibiotics before he could pull it. This however didn't work and he pulled it anyway. The infection then moved to my throat. I was 18 weeks pregnant, couldn't open my mouth due to lock jaw from the infection. Ended up having 3 different surgeries on my throat. I am now left with a huge disgusting scar on my neck. Although i was told by the two docs that cared for me at this time that keeping your wisdom teeth is like playing russian roullette with your life. So if you have a dentist that says you have room for your wisdom teeth and there is no reason to pull them I would strongly suggest you get a second oppinion. However reather or not it could break your jaw, I have heard that like the others said, if you have a good dentist you should not have any problems getting them pulled. I would do some research on dentists though. Had I done that i wouldn't have had the problems I did.
A fractured jaw bone and loss of sensation through nerve damage are two of the biggest "possible" problems with having wisdom teeth removed. HOWEVER, these rarely ever happen, and it is better to take the chance to get the wisdom teeth out (in my opinion) than to suffer from the pressure they put on your jaw bones and other teeth---they can actually "bust" other teeth!---, headaches, cavities, etc.
