Expert Wisdom Teeth Extractions at Bright Dental Solutions in Miramar, FL

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop. Sometimes they emerge from the gum line, and the jaw is large enough to allow room for them, but more often, they fail to emerge and become impacted due to lack of space. At Bright Dental Solutions, we specialize in the safe and effective extraction of wisdom teeth to prevent potential problems and maintain oral health.

Why Wisdom Teeth Extraction Is Necessary

Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to several dental issues, including:

  • Infection: The opening around an emerging wisdom tooth can become a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to infection.
  • Damage to Adjacent Teeth: If there’s not enough room for wisdom teeth, they can push against neighboring teeth, causing damage or misalignment.
  • Cysts and Tumors: Cysts can form around new If not treated, these can lead to the destruction of the jawbone and healthy teeth.
  • Gum Disease: Impacted teeth can lead to painful, inflamed gums and potentially contribute to gum disease.
