We’re answering these commonly asked questions regarding wisdom teeth to help you determine if SmileDirectClub aligners are right for you. We asked the expert, our Lead Dentist, Jeffrey Sulitzer, DMD, to get the answers.
Typically, you will need to wait 6 weeks after having your third molars (or wisdom teeth) removed before starting SmileDirectClub, recommends Dr. S. If your dentist or surgeon feels it’s safe, you may be able to start earlier with a signed release form from their office.
If your dentist has recommended removal of wisdom teeth, then please follow that direction, Dr. Sulitzer says. Especially if your wisdom teeth growing in has caused your teeth to shift. If not, you can purchase our impression kit or visit a SmileShop and a state-licensed dentist or orthodontist will review your smile for you. And if it is determined that aligner treatment isn’t right for you, we will refund the cost of your impression kit. So getting started is totally risk-free.
