Wisdom Teeth | West Bloomfield, MI

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.

My first impression was that the office was very clean and the staff very friendly.I am never happy about going to the dentist, usually you have pain with injections with a large out of pocket expense. I was very nervous about having my wisdom teeth removed . The dental assistance was outstanding she was always one step ahead of you and she was on top of everything.Dr. Cohen explain procedure so that your able to understand what to be expected Dr.Cohen is a very patience and understanding to accommodate your needs. Dr.Cohen had removed two of my wisdom teeth and i did not feel the extraction til it was over, Dr. Cohen is a pain free dentist and i look forward to having the other two wisdom teeth removed. Thank you Dr.Cohen and staff for everything.

Very fast and painless procedure. Wisdom teeth extraction was not as bad as I thought it would be. Speaks to the skill of the dentist and staff.

I was able to call and schedule a consultation and surgery within a week of one another. The doctor was very helpful in giving me all the information needed to make the right choice about how I should move forward with my wisdom teeth. On the day of the surgery I was seen quickly, and put to sleep. When I woke up everything was done and I was good to go. I did end up with dry socket, but when I called in at the end of the week with the issues I was having the woman on the phone was very helpful. She offered great advice, and offered to fit me into the schedule same day.

I have been looking to have my wisdom teeth removed for nearly 10 years now but never pulled the trigger because of cost and them not bothering me every day. Well that changed a few months back and from the first time I spoke with the office to schedule the appointment, to a follow up for pain following the process, it was the best decision to come here. The office itself is very clean and professionally kept. The ladies behind the desk were very nice and answered all the questions I had. And Dr. Cohen was a pleasure to meet. I would highly recommend Lakes Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to anyone looking to have oral surgery done.
