    Wisdom Teeth Removal

    Wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually start to push through your gums in your late teens or early twenties. In some cases, wisdom teeth may need to be removed in your late twenties or early thirties. Whatever your case may be, wisdom teeth must almost always be removed because there often is not enough space for them to come in, thus crowding the other teeth.

    Do I Really Have to Get Them Removed?

    Wisdom teeth that don't cause pain and haven't pushed through the gums can still become a problem. They can become infected below the gumline and cause additional oral health problems. Once you confirm with your dentist that your wisdom teeth are coming in and that they need to be removed, a plan of action will be formulated to extract them.

    Maximizing insurance benefits

    Since we are in-network with most dental insurances, many of our patients' wisdom teeth removal fees are covered at around 80% (including anesthesia). However, this can be impacted by a number of factors.

    When it comes to wisdom teeth removal, you don’t want a dentist or oral surgeon who’s working with outdated dental tech. Here’s how our advanced technology, including 3D X-Rays and Cone Beams, helps with creating more accurate results and shorter recovery time:

    • Gives us the ability to see wisdom teeth in 3D as well as identify any nerves or sinuses that may affect their removal
    • Helps identify potential cysts and tumors
    • Provides a higher level of diagnostic accuracy, leading to better treatment and care

    The appropriate amount of local anesthesia will be used to ensure that you are comfortable during the procedure.


    After the procedure, bleeding will be controlled by gauze and an appropriate amount will be provided for you to use at home. 


    Someone will need to drive you home after the surgery because you will still be feeling the effects from the anesthesia.


    Post-operative instructions will be provided so you can comfortably heal at home.


    If needed, a prescription for antibiotics and pain medication will be given to you to ensure that your recovery is more comfortable.


    We will follow up with you to make sure that you are healing well and to see if you have any additional questions.

So kind and knowledgeable, articulate, and very focused. I was so impressed. She was also very kind. And so was the dentist. I felt no pain whatsoever. He was friendly and super-sharp. The clinic looked stylish, clean, and tidy. Amazing." - Giovanni A.
