Q.

teeth 78

Good day. You seemed to have missed my prevoius entry.
what is the possibility that braces will assist with my teeth. I am 32 years old and do not know if it will help. My medical aid will not pay due to my age. Therefore I will need to pay out of my pocket.
Also my dentist told me that my wisdom teeth will not come out as it is horisontal. He said I should leave it if it does not give me problems. Sometimes I get a preasure feeling on the one side of my jaw. According to him it might be my wisdom tooth. He also said that my teeth is scew due to the wisdom teeth pushing it.
Would you suggest that I leave the wisdom teeth or remove it. And also how successful will braces be?
