Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth, generally between the ages of 17 and 25. However, for many patients, these teeth will become impacted and cause toothache-like pain and other more serious complications that can harm your oral health. If you’re experiencing discomfort because of your wisdom teeth, we advise you to schedule a consultation with our oral surgeons. Even if you’re not in any pain, seeking expert wisdom teeth extraction from our team can help to prevent future infection or damage to existing teeth.

Our Wisdom Teeth Removal Process
While wisdom teeth extraction is a surgical treatment, it is one we complete on a daily to weekly basis. Furthermore, as skilled and trained oral surgeons, we are qualified to handle any emergencies that may arise during and after surgery. On the day of surgery, we’ll administer the proper level of sedation so you’re comfortable and feel no pain. We’ll then strategically extract your wisdom teeth based on the 3D digital images taken with our CBCT imaging technology. Once surgery is complete, we’ll ensure you’re comfortable before you return home. Expect to take a few days to recover from your surgery, but know we are here for you if any complications arise. Feeling nervous about surgery is expected, but once the procedure is over, your teeth will look and feel better, and infection from impacted wisdom teeth will no longer be a threat.
Have your teeth extracted by the experts.
