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.

Patient Testimonial

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.

Patient Testimonial

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!
