Remove Third Molars to Prevent Complications
Many people don’t realize their wisdom teeth are growing in until it’s too late, which is why we recommend consultations and early wisdom teeth removal to the residents of Burton, MI. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars—and the last adult teeth—to grow into the mouth, and they often cause a host of oral health problems.
When a mouth is not large enough for wisdom teeth to grow into properly, they grow in at angles and can push other teeth out of alignment. Wisdom teeth can become impacted, or trapped beneath the gums, and can cause serious issues such as infection, cysts, and tumors. Fortunately, you can easily avoid these complications by having your wisdom teeth removed at Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center.
We will not perform your wisdom teeth removal upon your first visit to our office. Our team stresses the importance of getting to know our patients before developing individualized treatment plans to fit their needs. At your initial appointment, your oral surgeon will perform a thorough consultation, examine your mouth, using X-rays and 3D scans to determine the position of your wisdom teeth, review your medical history, and more. It’s vital that your oral surgeon understands every part of your condition before developing a course of treatment.
Easy, Online Video Consultations
Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center is pleased to offer after-hours online video consultations for patients seeking wisdom teeth removal.
An online video consultation is a virtual consultation that takes place in a HIPAA-compliant video conference setting. It is a safe and convenient way to meet your doctor and care team while you receive important information about your treatment plan, financial details, pre- and post-operative instructions, and more. As an added bonus, an online video consultation allows you to have a consultation at the time and place that is convenient for you. An online video consultation is very similar to an in-person consultation, so you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
While we make every effort to ensure we exceed our patients’ expectations, eligibility of an online video consultation is at the discretion of the practice to ensure patient safety and optimal outcomes. In general, patients seeking an online video consultation should
- Be between the ages of 14 and 30 years of age
- Be in good health
- Have recent panorex X-rays
- Have a reliable, high-speed internet connection
If you are interested in an online video consultation for wisdom teeth removal, please call our office and ask the front desk.
Wisdom Teeth Removal and Anesthesia Options
One important part of your consultation involves deciding which anesthesia you will receive during treatment. Our team understands the importance of feeling comfortable during treatment, which is why we offer a variety of choices for sedation.
- Local anesthesia is a common choice of anesthetic for simple dental procedures, such as fillings or regular extractions. It numbs the area so the patient can remain awake without feeling any pain or discomfort.
- Nitrous Oxide is typically chosen in conjunction with other anesthetics because it can calm patients’ nerves but does not eliminate pain. Nitrous oxide is more commonly known as laughing gas.
- Intravenous (IV) anesthesia is most often used for wisdom teeth removal because it puts the patient in a sleep-like state. Because wisdom teeth removals are typically more complex procedures than normal extractions, patients prefer to be awake only once the surgery is over.
The anesthetic administered to you at your surgical appointment will depend on your needs and preferences. Your oral surgeon will discuss all of the options with you and take your medical history into account before recommending the best choice for you.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure
Wisdom teeth can be removed several ways, depending on how developed they are in the mouth. Fully developed wisdom teeth are usually removed just like any other teeth. However, early wisdom teeth removal requires a more in-depth procedure. Your oral surgeon will administer your anesthesia and make incisions into the gums, where necessary. Sometimes, bone needs to be removed from the gums to make the teeth more accessible, and often, the teeth are broken into smaller pieces to aid in the removal process.

Reviews From Our Wisdom Tooth Patients
Carrie Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I was searching for an oral surgeon that I could trust. The team here at Dr. Lesneski’s office is excellent. They are warm, inviting. They are awesome people. I think the best attribute that I see with Dr. Lesneski is his personality. He gives you the time that you need as a parent when you present yourself with concerns about your child, and he makes you feel at ease right from the beginning. As we came in, everything was just as Dr. Lesneski had said. It was perfect. The recovery was great as well, and he was up and at ‘em within 24 hours. I would give Greater Michigan beyond five stars. They are fabulous at what they do."
Nick Reviews His Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I came to see Dr. Lesneski to get my wisdom teeth out. The staff here is really nice. They were very helpful; they were very informative before I underwent the process. It was a good thing; it was a comfortable environment. I would recommend Dr. Lesneski to anyone else getting their wisdom teeth taken out because the procedure went so smoothly, and I had a good experience overall."
Careese Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"Well, I came to Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons because my dentist recommended that I had to have four wisdom teeth pulled, and of course, when I heard that, I was frightened because my older sister had a horrifying experience, and I was like, "Eh, do I want to come? Do I really want to get this done?" I was not excited about it at all. I was a little nervous, and then I also heard that people had different experiences; some people said it hurt, some people said it didn't. I didn't know what I was going to have. I thought I was going to have a 50/50 chance of it happening, so I really didn't know. But they eased my worries a lot when I came into the door. Well, my procedure was relatively simple. I came in, they gave me some laughing gas, and after that, they stuck the needle in, and after that, I don't remember a thing. And honestly, it was a lot easier than I ever anticipated. It wasn't that bad at all. Dr. Lesneski was probably one of the most approachable doctors I have ever experienced. From the moment I walked in the door to the time in the chair getting my procedure done, one of the best guys I've ever experienced when it comes to getting any kind of dental procedure. They're perfect, and they're wonderful when it comes to treating you and taking care of you."
Sydney Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I was actually told about four years ago that I needed to get my wisdom teeth out, and I was very afraid to get them out because I had never been put under before. I met Dr. Lesneski, and I felt very comfortable with him. Dr. Lesneski is super funny and kind and really helps calm the nerves. The staff is very friendly and nice. They came in constantly trying to make sure that I wasn't nervous or to see if I needed anything. It was super easy and quick. I would say this is the best place to go because the staff is friendly, and the doctors are great, and they're always willing to help you. If any of my friends or family in Bay City, Saginaw, or Midland needed their wisdom teeth taken out, I would highly recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons."
Mandi Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I brought my son, Daniel, to get his wisdom teeth extracted. Everything just went really good. Dr. Lesneski — he is great. He really knows what he's doing. He made us feel very comfortable, where we knew that everything was going to go great. The staff is amazing. They were just very comforting. Everything was just great. I would highly recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons."
