Wisdom Teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

I was nervous at first because I was getting my wisdom teeth out. But, the doctors here took care of me. They made me relax before anything was done and I felt calm and cool going into the surgery. I was out at ease and everything went smoothly.

This place is wonderful. They have snacks in the waiting lounge which makes it very homey and they make sure you feel comfortable. I was very nervous to get my wisdom teeth taken out but they reassured me I would be good and it has now been 10 days since my surgery and I have not had any complications what so ever! I had little to no swelling and no pain at all afterwards. They are truly wonderful.
