Wisdom Teeth Removal in
Grand Blanc, MI
Remove Third Molars to Prevent Complications
Wisdom teeth are the last molars to grow in the mouth, and wisdom teeth removal in Grand Blanc, MI, is common because the average mouth does not have enough room to house them. Typically, wisdom teeth removal is necessary because wisdom teeth start threatening the health of your other teeth. Without enough space to grow properly, wisdom teeth will grow in at an angle and damage your oral health.
Early wisdom teeth removal is strongly recommended because it prevents wisdom teeth from fully developing. Fully developed wisdom teeth are sometimes harder to removed, and they have typically had enough time to damage nearby tooth roots or cause the growth of infection, cysts, or tumors. If wisdom teeth are removed before development, the procedure and recovery are easier, and you can rest easy knowing your oral health isn’t at risk.
Initial Consultation for Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you choose Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center for wisdom teeth removal, you will first visit our office for a consultation appointment. We will examine your mouth, jaws, and any X-rays or 3D scans to get a good idea of the position of your wisdom teeth and whether or not they pose a threat to your health. Following your examination, your oral surgeon will determine the best course of treatment and develop your personalized treatment plan.
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.
Sedation for Wisdom Teeth Removal
Oral surgeons receive specialized training in the administration of all forms of anesthesia. We offer a few choices for anesthesia to help patients feel comfortable during their procedure:
- Local Anesthesia – Typically used in simple dental procedures, local anesthesia numbs the surgical area so the patient can avoid any pain or discomfort.
- Nitrous Oxide – More commonly known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is usually used in combination with local or IV anesthesia to calm patients’ nerves before treatment.
- IV Sedation – IV sedation puts patients into a sleep-like state, unable to feel pain. Patients will wake up once the procedure is completed.
Your oral surgeon will discuss all of your options for sedation with you at your consultation appointment, and we will choose the one that you are most comfortable with.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure
When you come in for your wisdom teeth removal, we will answer all of your questions and ensure you feel prepared and comfortable before beginning the procedure. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, your surgeon will make incisions where necessary to remove the third molars. In some cases, he will need to remove bone blocking the path of removal or break the teeth into smaller pieces to make for an easier removal process.

Reviews From Our Wisdom Tooth Patients
Erisa Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"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."
Adrienne Reviews His Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I needed my wisdom teeth out. I was a little nervous at first, but everyone made me feel very comfortable. I had it done super early, so no one was there, it was just people working, and they just were like, "Hi! How are you? You'll be fine, don't worry," and they were just very nice and smiling. It made me feel like I was in good hands. Well, when Dr. Lesneski came in, he was like, "It'll be okay. You'll be fine." I thought it'd be really long and I'd remember a lot of it, but I didn't remember a lot, and it went by like a blink of an eye. It was an overall good experience to have nice people get me feeling comfortable, and I had a good procedure. So, if any of my friends or family needed their wisdom teeth taken out in Flint, Fenton, or Saginaw, I would highly recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons."
Jake Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I came to see Dr. Lesneski because I needed my wisdom teeth taken out. I just remember going back there, and then I got put under, and I just don't remember a thing after that. I just thought it would hurt — like I could feel it — but you can't feel it at all. Wasn't really in pain; it just took a little bit of time for all the stuff to heal up, and I did. It was fine. It didn't take too long to heal. The staff — they're nice, they smile, they're good to talk to. Dr. Lesneski — I like him, he's a good guy. I can get along with him pretty good. Yeah, I know people in Goodrich, Fenton, and Flint, Michigan, that I would for sure recommend Dr. Lesneski to, to get their wisdom teeth out."
Tabatha Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I came to see Dr. Lesneski for my wisdom teeth. I was in pain, so I needed to get my wisdom teeth taken out. I was nervous that something might go wrong, or I might not take to the anesthetic and it might hurt. The staff and Dr. Lesneski helped to calm my nerves by, you know, explaining every step that they were going to do and helping me get calm and just basic things, like telling me really what was going to happen. The process did go a lot easier than I initially thought it was going to. Dr. Lesneski is a very good doctor, and he helps you really understand, you know, and some doctors don't do that, and it was really amazing that he did. I have friends in Davison, Montrose, Clio, and Goodrich, and I would definitely recommend them to come here to Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons because they did a very well job."
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."
