Wisdom Tooth Removal

At some point in their lives, most people will need to have their wisdom teeth removed. Third molars, or more commonly known as "wisdom teeth," develop in the late teenage years or early twenties. Because the jaw bone is typically not large enough to accommodate this third set of molars, wisdom teeth can potentially pose serious problems to the rest of the mouth by crowding or damaging adjacent teeth, the jawbone or nerves. In most cases, wisdom teeth are extracted to prevent overcrowding and maintain optimal tooth and gum health.

We take special care to walk you through each step of the wisdom teeth removal process to maximize your comfort level—from your first examination to the end of your recovery.

"Best dental visit ever!
From the moment I called until I walked out the door, I was treated with kindness and honesty. Every one was so friendly and helpful. I have HUGE anxiety when I go to the dentist but not this time. They put me at ease. I am actually looking forward to some procedures to improve my smile!!"
