  • You should go for extraction of the rotted wisdom tooth before going for braces. Normally also before getting braces, wisdom teeth are advised for extraction and yours is rotted also. So get them pulled out. Regarding waiting period after extraction, it depends on how the teeth are extracted. If these are normally pulled out then after 7-10 days you can go for braces but if they are surgically extracted then wait for healing, may be you have to wait for 3 weeks in which normally healing takes place.
