Q.

Teeth

Good day doc,

1. I had two of my wisdom teeth removed a month ago and just want to know for how long will the hole be there and must i rinse after meals until the hole is closed?
2. I am 26 years old and had braces 7 years ago but my one tooth is not straight. Must i get braces again or is there a easier way?

complete healing usually takes around 6 weeks.
Rinsing after meals is important.
The decision to have braces again can only be made after an examination by a dentist- there are many factors to consider
