How long do I need to wait after removing my wisdom teeth before I can start treatment?

Greg D Updated by Greg D

Our dentists generally advise that you wait 6 weeks after removing your wisdom teeth (third molars) before treatment.

If your dentist or surgeon believes that you can start your treatment earlier, they must issue to you a signed release form.

Even after you receive this form, our own dental team may want to examine your teeth in person or through photos in order to determine what the best course of action is.

The reason for this is because we put our customers health above all else and want to make sure all the necessary precautions are taken before treatment can even be considered.

If you have any upcoming dental work before your Invisible Aligner treatment, then please call us at 01 513 3347 or email
