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.

Oral surgeon Peter Wagner extracted all 4 of my wisdom teeth today and I was shocked at how easy the procedure worked, I’m not gonna lie I was pretty paranoid going into the procedure but Peter was very fast and executed the task at hand perfectly if I knew someone needing this type of work I would recommend him to everyone I know, I just wanna day thanks again Peter for making my experience so easy and being very helpful in the advice you gave me! You’re great at your job.

Dr Wagner and his assistants were very friendly and courteous. They took the time to explain the after care needed and did not seem rushed at all. I would recommend them in the future.

Very thorough and professional in the consultation visit giving me confidence in selecting Dr Kortebein to go ahead with the wisdom tooth extraction, which was completed earlier this week. Procedure went very well. Same thoroughness by both the Dr Kortebein and his support staff. Super follow through providing instructions, soliciting questions, and following up by phone the day after. Also worth noting was that there was a question on an adjacent tooth condition and potential extraction necessity. This second tooth concern actually drove the need for the wisdom tooth extraction (a 64 year in the making issue). Upon removal of the wisdom tooth, only normal dental repair will now be required on the adjacent tooth. Hopefully I will never need an oral surgeon again.....but if so I will be returning.

My 17yo son had 2 wisdom teeth extracted. The first time he had anything like this done or been sedated ... The staff made him feel at ease, answered all of our questions & the procedure was quick. We were in & out of the office in less than 1 hour. They provided us w/all the follow up info verbally & written, set expectations for him & described what to watch for to allow us to be proactive in the event infection sets in. Very pleased & would come back w/other family if there is a need in the future.

My regular dentist referred me. Everything went very well. The person in the reception area was nice and helpful. The staff was also friendly and very good. My post op experience was better than I expected, and they called the next day to see how I was doing.
