I had my wisdom teeth removed a week ago and they were sitting partially above my 12 year old molars, now i have to keep the holes open until my 12 year old molars erupt, how long will it roughly be until they erupt to the point where there will not be any holes? I can see the molars cap completely in the hole 2 or 3 mm below my gum line.

  • The wisdom teeth which were there on your 1 2 year molar were not letting the molars grow. now you have got them extracted.it will enhance the eruption of the 12 years molars and they will erupt in 10 to 14 days in the oral cavit and the holes will not be there but you should take care and follow al the instructions given by your dentist. you can visit the following link for do's and don'ts after extraction http://www.identalhub.com/article_do's-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
