Wisdom teeth/pain complications
Hey, I got my final pair of braces off about 4 years ago, and I was supposed to get my wisdom teeth out around the same time, when I was 16. Also, I was given a mouthpiece to wear after my last visit to the orthodontist.
Well I never got my wisdom teeth out, pretty much because I have REALLY bad anxiety about going to the dentist. And I know that I need to especially now because I am almost positive that my teeth are moving. My teeth are constantly in pain, especially on the right side of my mouth. I wake up and have headaches and the pain radiates on the right side of my head. I am going to see the dentist in the next few weeks to set up my wisdom teeth removal, but I am not sure whether to keep on wearing the mouth piece I've had for 4 years or what? There is a metal piece that now sticks into the upper right back side of my gums, I guess from my teeth moving, and causes me pain, and I'm not even sure if I'm still supposed to be wearing it anymore. I know the best thing to do is to get it over with, but does all of this sound like normal complications with waiting to get your wisdom teeth extracted?
I can tell my teeth move, pain around my jaw, and side of face, sometimes pain in my neck. Thanks for any help or recommendations.
