Post Splint/Orthotic BEFORE Wisdom Teeth Extraction??

Ok, does it make any sense that I am getting my orthotic BEFORE my wisdom teeth extraction?

I have 4 "severely" impacted wisdom teeth.. I have a consultation about getting them out the same day I get my orthotic (15th of this month)

I probably won't get the wisdom teeth out until November - December. Does this make sense???

I'm in the same position kind of.

They want to take out my wisdom teeth before splint therapy. After reading and researching some it seems that overall and in the long run, that's the best thing to do. Of course everyone is different though. Maybe you should pursue a second opinion if you're unsure about your doctor's plan.

take care,
Mark

I was told also, recently, that I should have my wisdom teeth removed before any other work could be done on my teeth, although 15 years ago when I first got a splint, my wisdom teeth were never mentioned.

Mark in your case I think I read where you're in your twenties and that might be the reason they want your wisdom teeth out now as a preventive measure.

In my case (I'm late 40's) I question the need to have them removed as stats show the chances of wisdom teeth causing problems diminishes with age...

I am going to see a another specialist next month and see if he agrees...might just be an age thing....
