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.

Doctor Cohen is a master of his craft and everyone else couldn't be more perfect for there position. So lucky and glad that I ended up there to have the work done that I needed. Very professional but still human an easy to talk to. I hope I never have to do anything like that again anytime soon but if I do I know where I want to go to have it done.

Thank you for taking such great care of our daughter during her wisdom teeth surgery, especially in the middle of a pandemic. She said she had a very positive, painless experience with those inserting her IV for sedation. The instructions for aftercare were thorough and extremely helpful. So far so good, in terms of Lily's healing process. We are following the instructions to the letter. Stay safe and well! Thank you again for your kindness and professionalism! You are all pandemic angels!

The entire staff was really accommodating. Being the end of the year where everyone is rushing to get their medical care addressed, Dr. Cohen and his staff did an incredible job of having minimal wait time while also making you feel comfortable with the procedure. I’m a day out from my wisdom tooth removal, and I feel great. Dr. Cohen is one of the best out there.

Great experience for something that isn't fun to do. Staff was helpful, able to fill prescriptions in the same building which was helpful. Very detailed after care instructions.

The procedure for the wisdom tooth extraction was smooth. They did a consultation session first before the actual surgery which was super helpful. The procedure went on smoothly too and I also got a call from the practice yesterday to check on me which was really nice of them. Overall I would highly recommend them to any of my friends/family.

I was very impressed with my visits. Everyone took such great care of me. The office staff was very helpful and patient, the woman who prepped me before my first consultation and actual appointment was so sweet and caring. She was humorous too and made me feel so comfortable! (I believe her name was also Kathy.) My recovery is going well. I would be happy to return if I needed to. Thank you!!!
