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.

Mala and Maranda did such a great job in caring for my children while under anesthesia. My son had 3 tooth extracted and I am amazed by how well he tolerated his pain today vs. his pass experience elsewhere. My daughter also had her wisdom tooth extracted. Glad I made the decision to bring them here and the best thing is... They wheel patients down to their car depending on whats being done.

The doctor was able to get me in and out and after the procedure they actually called to see how I was doing. Haven't had that happen at any other dentist office I've worked with.

Dr Cohen and his staff were very professional and explained procedures and risks prior to starting my treatments. They offered pain-free procedures to assure I was comfortable prior to and during my treatments. I highly recommend Dr Cohen for any dental surgical procedures.

Dr. Cohen and his staff were great. The only thing I was disappointed with was after the wisdom tooth extraction, the tooth fairy never showed up so I didn't collect the $200 I felt I had coming to me.
