While it is Broad Street Braces’ goal to avoid pulling teeth during the alignment process, there are occasions when it is necessary in order to create more space in your mouth. Wisdom teeth are commonly known to require removal during your alignment process.
Wisdom teeth are known as the third set of molars in your mouth. They are typically the last permanent teeth to emerge in the back corners of your mouth on both the top and the bottom. The average person develops all four wisdom teeth around the ages of 17-25, while others only develop only a few or none at all. Often, there is minimal space for your wisdom teeth to grow in comfortably and without compromising other aspects of your mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth have not broken through the gums yet.
At Broad Street Braces, we will run a variety of diagnostic tests to determine if your wisdom teeth will need to be removed at some point during your alignment process. We usually recommend their removal if they are impacted or if they are crowding other teeth. If teeth need to be removed, we will refer you to an oral surgeon who will perform the surgery.
