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.

My daughter and son had their wisdom teeth removed by Dr Vakkas both with minimal post-op issues.Speedy recovery and healing time with minimal discomfort.- Amazingly my son had no pain following his surgery- Dr Vakkas is an exceptional oral surgeon with an outstanding professional mannerism- Any post op questions were answered right away and follow-up call to check on patient makes all the difference. I would highly recommend Dr Vakkas. His staff is great too- so helpful and pleasant 🙂
