Is it possible to have wisdom teeth extracted while having braces?

My dentist says I need my wisdom teeth out but I have braces.

Yes it is possible to get your wisdom teeth out while you have braces. Your braces are not connected to them.

You sure can have them removed! When your wisdom teeth are impacted, they won't have braces on them, so the dentist or oral surgeon will work around the braces you have in place. It's a small surgery you should heal from in a week or so!

Wisdom teeth are actually found in your gums in the WAY back of your mouth. Since the braces aren't on these teeth they can easily be extracted.

Yes, you can have your wisdom teeth extracted with braces on your teeth. If your dentist thinks you need your wisdom teeth extracted he/she probably has a very good reason for doing so.
