After wisdom tooth removal, it may be necessary to get braces to make the area of the mouth that you are using more comfortable. There will be some swelling, and bruising during the process, but it should be short-lived and will heal over time. You may also have to have a dental implant placed in the area of the tooth removal.

You will also need to know what to do if you do not have a wisdom tooth removed. The tooth will still need to be brushed and flossed, but you may not be able to eat the foods that were previously able to be chewed easily. You may also have to be prescribed pain medication, so make sure to talk to your dentist if this happens.
Some people choose to get dental implants in the area of the wisdom tooth. This is not recommended for everyone. Your dentist can tell you if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
Wisdom tooth removal should not be treated lightly. You should talk with your dentist before you have this procedure done, and if you are not happy with the results, you may want to talk to your dentist about something else.
