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.

"Another comfortable experience
Having a bad experience at 11 yrs old negatively impacted dentists for me. I've gone to several since then (& shed many tears) & only one of them made me comfortable & didn't cause alot of pain, & he died suddenly yrs ago. So when my daughter chose Dr Bigelow for my 3 yr old "drama queen" grandaughter's 1st trip I was hesitant about it, thinking she should take her to a pediatric dentist. But, he was highly recommended to her by friends & family & she did great!!! She loved the entire trip. Based on her "reviews", I decided I would give Dr Bigelow a try. The 1st time I walked in the door, I was comfortable with the atmosphere & the staff were most accomodating. After the first root canal..I wasn't scared to go back for the second one. The 2nd one was done yesterday & I didn't even use "happy gas" through this one!!!!! Definitely recommended!!!"
