I'm not sure what to make of this... Last summer at their regular check-up, difficult child asked the dentist about having her wisdom teeth removed. The dentist was surprised she would ask such a thing. They took new x-rays and after checking them, they felt that the wisdom teeth were well-aligned and should not cause any problems coming in. Since then, difficult child has made several references to needing the wisdom teeth removed...not usre why she has been so fixated on this issue. On Saturday, difficult child announced that her teeth had shifted during the night and now she needs to have her wisdom teeth removed - and sure enough, the teeth are shifted. My question is - is this normal? I know that wisdom teeth can cause the others to shift, but I would have thought it would be more gradual ? - not go to bed one night and everything is normal and then wake up the next day to find your smile shifted around? I'm worried because difficult child does not brush her teeth. Is this more likely caused by the wisdom teeth? or gum issues? Yes - I will make her an appointment with the dentist.
