Wisdom Tooth Extraction Affect Braces Doral - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

Doral area patients ask, "Can wisdom tooth extraction affect my braces?"

The third molars often referred to as the "wisdom teeth," erupt in the back of the mouth later than the rest of the teeth. A wisdom tooth can come through the gum line in the late teen years or even early adulthood. However, this can pose a problem. Patients who have had braces and other extensive dental work done may be worried about how a wisdom tooth can affect the alignment of their smile. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental in the Doral area see many patients who are worried about their wisdom teeth and are interested in extraction.

It is common for wisdom teeth to be extracted. This is because they are known for being problematic. They may not have the room to erupt through the gum line, which results in painful impaction. Other times they may erupt and affect the alignment of the dental arch. In some cases, they may be a high risk for periodontal disease and cavities because they are so far back in the mouth that they can be difficult to keep clean. Because of these issues, there are times when Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. may be proactive and suggest wisdom tooth extraction well before they come through.

Extraction of a wisdom tooth before eruption is commonly done, especially for patients who have had orthodontic work. The wisdom teeth could erupt through the gum line and then misalign the smile due to overcrowding. This can require additional orthodontics to remedy the problem. Instead, our team may suggest surgical extraction of wisdom teeth before they have the chance to affect the smile.
