What are Wisdom Teeth?
Pulling teeth, as the saying goes, does not have to be a drawn-out, negative experience. At our wisdom teeth removal North Miami Beach facility, we can perform tooth extractions quickly and with minimal discomfort to treat a host of dental conditions, including advanced gum disease. Miami dentistry patients suffering from broken, cracked, and/or excessively decayed or damaged teeth (who are not good candidates for a root canal) will benefit from this often simple and straightforward procedure. We may recommend extractions, also called exodontias, in these situations:
- When wisdom teeth, or third molars, emerge as non-functional and/or misaligned.
- If a candidate for dentures only has a few worn or compromised remaining teeth on an arch, we may recommend extractions so a full denture can be placed.
- Patients, often younger children, may have impacted teeth positioned to emerge out of alignment, or teeth that block others from erupting.
- Orthodontic patients with overcrowded mouths that require more space along the jaw line to properly align the teeth.
