FAQ:  Tooth Movement - Shifting Teeth


Lost Retainer Treatment Option
Dynamics of Shift - Movement

Question:
I've been noticing my teeth shifting on one side of my mouth. The shifting occured (from what I noticed) after my wisdom teeth came in. If in fact it is my wisdom teeth causing it, what would be the procedures to correct my teeth and what type of dentist do I see? ... Visitor New York

Answer:
As the wisdom teeth erupt they can place a lot of pressure on the rest of the dentition (teeth in the mouth). The result can be a shifting of the teeth. The proper dentist to see first is your general dentist who may refer you to an oral surgeon to have the wisdom teeth extracted and then an orthodontist to have the teeth straightened.
