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 have twins who both needed to have impacted wisdom teeth extracted. Doctor Howard's staff was very flexible and patient with me, as I needed to bring each child on a different day. Doctor Howard was amazing with the kids, and their experience was very positive. The office staff continues to show us courtesy as we come for our follow-up appointments. Everyone was so nice, and incredibly professional. I would highly recommend this office to anyone!

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.
