Wisdom teeth to replace 2nd molar?



Junior member

My front teeth are crowded because my wisdom teeth are about to come through. My dentist reccommended that I should get my 2nd molars pulled and then wait for the wisdom teeth to come into the space that they left so I can get braces to straighten the crowding.

Is this wise?
Sounds like a pretty good plan to me! :)

If there's no molars in their way, the wisdoms can't impact against anything - they'll just come right in as they were supposed to do.
Couldn't make any kind of sensible comment without at least seeing x-rays. There are so many variables involved in this that it's pointless. Sorry.
