Wisdom teeth removal after age of 30?
Is it true your teeth would become loose and fall off earlier if you have braces when you're over the age of 30?

Sounds exactly the same as me. Had mine out at age 32 and all's well now.Chickinvic wrote: ↑May 4th, 2010 6:11 pmI had my impacted wisdom teeth removed at 30. The roots were all wrapped around the nerves, and it was quite a procedure for the surgeon. He had booked the operating room for 1 hour, and mine took over 4 hours. It didn't help that I'm some kind of mutant with 3 roots on each tooth instead of the usual 2, and one of my roots broke loose and he had to spend about 20 minutes trying by hand to prevent it from going into my body.
The surgeon told me that the ideal time to do them is about age 16.
On a positive note, my recovery wasn't likely any worse than the typical recovery for wisdom teeth removal.
I can't answer about the braces since I've never had them.

Not if you had a competent orthodontist.

If they were not causing pain, I'd leave them alone.
It's not 'dangerous' or a health risk to leave them in, lots of people have intact impacted teeth. Just means they won't come through.
Not sure I have an answer to your second question.
Why do you think your teeth would come loose? Puzzled.

I'm just hoping it never causes pain and I never have to go through with it, is that possible? lol

Don't worry I'm in the same boat as you. I hate going to the dentist and it hasnt caused any pain yet. Plus I just changed jobs so I have to wait again to get insurance benefits.
