Wisdom Teeth Extraction During Invisalign Treatment?
I started my Invisalign treatment, and my ortho now recommends that the 2 wisdom teeth be removed because the trays are not covering them, and therefore they might affect the treatment. Is this true? Will there be any other adverse effect by removing my wisdom teeth mid treatment? I am also curious because all the trays have already been made with the ends of them stopping suddenly at the wisdom teeth, once these are removed, wouldn't that require refinements, and new trays?
It would not affect your ortho Invisalign Treatment
Removing widsom teeth now may be more beneficial in the long run
Removal should be uneventful
You can have those teeth moved at anytime during Invisalign
