Q.

Pain/Braces

My wisdom has recently come out, and since this has happened, I' ve found that my molar before my wisdom, has turned sensitive. I often feel a sharp pain, if I have to chew on that side of my mouth. Should I be concerned?? Also would you consider 23, to be, to old to put braces.

Yes, the tooth needs to be examined- it is possible that the wisdom tooth is causing the pain t other tooth.
23 is YOUNG to have braces placed.
I have seen an 67 year old patient with braces.
