Remove Third Molars to Prevent Complications

If you live in Davison, MI, and you need to undergo wisdom teeth removal, Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center is happy to treat you. Wisdom teeth are the third molars and final adult teeth to grow in the mouth. Most people have four wisdom teeth, though it’s possible to have more or less.

When a mouth is too small to hold wisdom teeth, they grow incorrectly and threaten your overall health. Because this is the case for the average person, wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure. Our oral surgeons are experts at extracting wisdom teeth and have years of experience treating patients in the Davison, MI, community. It’s important to visit our office for early wisdom teeth removal to avoid the possibility of infection, tooth misalignment, cysts, tumors, and other issues caused by wisdom teeth growth.

Initial Appointment for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Your consultation appointment is the first step in undergoing wisdom teeth removal. Before developing your treatment, it’s important that our oral surgeons get a good look at your condition and the position of your wisdom teeth. Once they have reviewed your X-rays, any 3D scans, and your health history, they will be able to develop a personalized treatment plan for removal.

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

One important part of your consultation appointment is determining your choice for anesthesia. At Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center, it’s important to us that our patients feel comfortable during treatment, which is why we offer various forms of anesthesia.

IV Anesthesia. IV anesthesia is the most common form of anesthesia used during wisdom teeth removal because it allows patients to enter a sleep-like state until the procedure is over. Most patients wake up after the surgery and have no idea it even happened.

Nitrous Oxide. Nitrous oxide, which is more often called laughing gas, is usually used before a procedure to ease a patient’s anxiety. In most cases, it is used in conjunction with IV anesthesia or local anesthesia.

Local Anesthesia. Most patients have experience with local anesthesia because it is common in simple dental procedures, such as fillings. Local anesthesia is used to numb the surgical site and prevents the presence of any pain or discomfort.

You and your oral surgeon will go over all of your options for sedation at your initial consultation. We will choose the option or options that you are most comfortable with before proceeding with treatment.

The Procedure Process for Wisdom Teeth Removal

Because each patient’s condition is unique to them, each wisdom teeth removal procedure differs based on specific needs. In most cases, when you come in for wisdom teeth removal, your oral surgeon will administer your anesthesia and remove your teeth from the gums once you are asleep. In some cases, he must remove some bone from the removal path, or he may break the teeth into smaller pieces to help make the removal simpler. In other cases, patients’ wisdom teeth have already fully developed, in which case they can be extracted just like any other teeth.

"Well, I went to the dentist, and I got some X-rays done, and since I had braces, they said that my wisdom teeth would be an issue for me, and once I started feeling them poke through my gums that it was time to get them out. Dr. Lesneski was really friendly and inviting when I came in for a consultation. It probably took about five minutes for him to say, "We can schedule you for a wisdom teeth extraction. How does this date sound?" and I was in and out, and he just made me feel really welcome here. It was really quick. I don't remember any of it for hours afterwards, but my mom said it took about 15 total minutes for me to go back there and leave. If anyone in Bridgeport, Midland, or Bay City were looking for an oral surgeon, I would highly recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons to anyone who is looking for an oral surgeon to go to."

"I came here to get my wisdom teeth taken out, and Dr. Frey did it. I was really nervous, but the doctor — he came in, and he explained what he was going to do, and it was better once it was explained to me what was going to happen. I came in, and they put me to sleep for it, and when I woke up, it was easier than I thought it was going to be. The staff was actually really nice to me, and if you had any questions, they were good at answering and telling you. Dr. Frey really explained everything, and he was helpful if you had any questions. My procedure was really easy, and it was like I fell asleep and woke up, and it was over. If anyone in Flint, Fleshing, Fenton, needed their wisdom teeth taken out, I would definitely recommend Dr. Frey."

"I came to see Dr. Kittle to get my wisdom teeth out. When I first walked through the door, I was greeted by multiple receptionists. They were joking with me, playing music, it didn’t feel like an appointment. Dr. Kittle is really funny. He’s a really supportive guy. It was a fun experience to get my wisdom teeth out with him. The procedure was easier than I expected it to be. I feel great now. Overall, my experience at Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons was great, and I definitely recommend Dr. Kittle."

"Well, I came to see Dr. Lesneski to get my wisdom teeth pulled because they started going through my gums. I was a little bit nervous before my procedure because you have to go in and then they take your teeth out, and you don't know what's going on, but other than that, it's fine after. My procedure went fine. Just came here and then went into the room and got put on the gas and everything and went straight to sleep. My recovery was good. I just stayed at home and laid down and just relaxed for the entire time. Dr. Lesneski was really nice and kind and made sure that I was alright and everything was going to be okay. If you were to go get your wisdom teeth out, I'd go see Dr. Lesneski because everyone was really nice and kind and made sure everything was okay and good."

"I had a wisdom tooth that I needed to have taken out — I put it off for a very long time — and I also needed an implant put in. I was scared. I do not like be sedated — until I met Dr. Lesneski. It went really well. I was sedated, my procedure felt like it took a minute, even though I'm sure it took a lot longer, and I went home, recovered pretty fast, and everything went back to normal. I do like his office. His staff is very friendly. I really appreciate the fact he walked me through the entire procedure and made me feel safe. I would highly recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons, especially Dr. Lesneski."

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time off do you need for wisdom teeth removal?

Many patients return to their normal routines within 1-2 days following surgery.

How do I know if my wisdom tooth removal site is infected?

Red, swollen gums, substantial pain, pus coming from the gums, fever, swollen lymph nodes below the jaw, and difficulty opening the mouth are all signs of a possible infection. Call our office right away if you experience any of these after your surgery.

Should you be put to sleep for wisdom teeth?

Most patients undergo IV sedation, which puts you into a semi-conscious state. You are unable to feel pain, but can still answer questions your oral surgeon asks. You will likely not remember the procedure and will become fully conscious when it is over. You must arrange for an adult to drive you home and remain with you for 24 hours following surgery.

What happens if you wait too long to get wisdom teeth out?

Early removal is recommended because younger patients have smoother recoveries. Additionally, the wisdom teeth may not be fully developed, making their removal easier. You can have your wisdom teeth removed at any adult age. Leaving them untreated can cause them to grow at an angle and push other teeth out of alignment.
