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
Makayla Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"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."
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."
Diane Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I came to Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons upon a referral from my kids' dentist, Dr. Steve Taft in Flint, Michigan, for their wisdom teeth removal. Yeah, this was their first surgery, so it was kind of nerve-racking as a mom to have your kids go through any type of surgery, but it was their first surgery. Dr. Frey was very easy to make an appointment for a consultation and then subsequently to schedule the surgical appointment. They were very friendly. After the surgery, everything was fine. We never had any complications — no bleeding, hardly any pain. Something that was really close to my heart was that Dr. Frey personally called every night for each of the kids to ask how they were doing, if they were having any pain, if there was anything he could do for them. Staff's very nice, very friendly, very comfortable to talk to. Dr. Frey is probably the most kind doctor or dentist that I've ever known. You can talk very easily to him. He relates to the kids very well. Absolutely, I think it's probably the best place to get your wisdom teeth out and any type of oral surgery in the area."
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."
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."
