Wow! I thought I would never be glad to have wisdom teeth, but after reading about the maxillary tuberosity, I am happy that my wisdom teeth are growing along my bottom jaw instead of my top jaw!
Wisdom teeth procedures are never any fun, but having them on the top seems like it would be worse, especially since you can fracture your maxillary tuberosity that way, or when the dentist pulls your wisdom teeth out. This seems like a lose-lose situation!
Fracturing your maxillary tuberosity seems very painful and the splint treatment that an oral surgeon fixes this fracture with seems time-consuming. I am sure the splint treatment is well worth the wait in the end though!
