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.

Lovely place even though I don't feel my face. 11/10 would regrow all wisdom teeth and come again

So far so good! I got all four of my wisdom teeth removed. I decided against the general anesthesia, and it wasn't bad at all. The worst part was when they poked my gums to numb me. I think they're healing nicely, with all the meds they gave me for aftercare. Two thumbs up.

I just wanted to thank Dr. Cohen and his staff for taking such good care of both of my children for their wisdom teeth surgeries. They answered all of my questions and were willing to take as much time needed to make sure I was comfortable with the after care. The office is brand new, very clean and the people are wonderful! I highly recommend Dr. Cohen and his staff!!

They were able to fit me in the same day I called them without an appointment and treated me like family. Dr. Cohen was great and his confidence left me with no doubt I was in good hands.

I was nervous to get my wisdom teeth out, but was in great hands with Dr. Cohen. He was very professional. He took his time explaining the procedure and making sure that I was comfortable. Even the next day, he followed up, calling me to make sure that I was doing ok. when I had a question, I called the office, and he called back within a short period of time. I have already recommended Dr. Cohen and Lakes Oral and Maxillo Facial to family and friends.

Thank you Dr. Cohen and staff for taking such great care of me and for putting my mind at ease with the extraction and for helping me with the infection I developed after. Your staff is very nice and helped me relax when I was very nervous.

After going in for something completely unrelated, Dr. Cohen had caught something that my dentist had missed. I can not thank him enough for treating myself and my mother with the utmost respect and for proceeding in a calm and thorough manner with my treatment plan. I had two wisdom teeth and two molars extracted and the process was extremely easy and almost painless! My recovery was quick and Dr. Cohen was ready and available to answer any questions that I had regarding my care following the surgery. The team at Lakes Oral Surgery will make you feel at ease through whatever treatment you receive!
