Wisdom teeth

06/23/2008

Question:

hello. i have just had all 4 of my wisdom teeth out in the past week and i notice that there are more teeth growing back in their place.....surely a person cant have more wisdom teeth...dont tell me i have to get these removed aswell...i can feel them breaking the gum that has just about healed.

also my teeth feel really loose since i had them out and i still cant eat anything that involves using my teeth.

i feel abnormal

Answer:

You are not regrowing your wisdom teeth. You may have a piece of bone showing through. The healing plug in the socket can have a whitish hue to it. If you have questions and feel funny, it would be best to return to the dentist that removed your teeth and have him/her examine the area and address what you are feeling.
