Wisdom Teeth

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.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I had been putting off getting my impacted wisdom teeth (which were sitting on the nerve) out all my whole life due to being deathly afraid of what could happen. This group of amazing people helped me every step of the way. I was immediately at ease. A big thank you to the lovely girl who held my hand and talked me through every step and McKenzie who gave me the most Pain free IV of my life. You are all rockstars and I am thankful for all you did for me. I can’t recommend this group enough.

Very pleasant and professional. Dr. Farren explained the procedure in depth and made sure we were comfortable prior to having the procedure. Norma, Dr. Farren's nurse, was so comforting to my daughter...who was extremely nervous. She took extra care of her and put us both at ease. I highly recommend Great Oak for any oral procedure...the practice is amazing.

If you need oral surgery, you want Dr. Farren and staff. I was in pain when I met them and they were so friendly and efficient that I just knew it was going to be OK. - Dr, Farren extracted my partially impacted and decayed wisdom tooth in as painless and careful a manner as humanly possible. - The after-care instructions are clear and thorough. They even sent me home with a round ice pack that's perfect for the side of my face -See Dr. Farren. I'm glad i did.
