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.

Took my daughter in for removal of 4 wisdom teeth. The assistant that supported was awesome. She was so supportive of my daughter and her nervousness and was extremely thorough in discussion of the follow up care. Extremely pleasant experience considering what she was in for. The surgery went quickly and with no follow up concerns.

I will definitely consider any future procedures with this office. After my procedure, the office called me to check on me. After complaining about pain, they called me in office to see if my pain was due anything they could help me with and helped with pain.

The office atmosphere was warm and inviting from the moment you walk in. The staff was friendly and helpful with my insurance coverage and took the extra effort to see what is best for my family financially to ensure coverage. Dr. Cohen was knowledgable and informative on post and pre-op instructions and relieved any anxiety my daughter had with her wisdom teeth extraction.

I had minimal pain after the surgery until I developed a dry socket, I called up, was told to come in ASAP and they fixed it. I wouldn’t expect to feel like someone is worried about my recovery, but they definitely check on you and offer support.

Every staff member I encountered was professional and personable. They made me feel comfortable in what was initially a stressful situation for me. I was so very thankful Dr Cohen was amenable to scheduling my appointment on short notice. I was in excruciating pain when I walked in to his office, but left feeling confident that I would be pain free very soon. I was not wrong, it was less that 24 hours when I felt like a million bucks. Thank you Dr. Cohen and your wonderful staff for a job well done.

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.
