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
Courtney Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"When I first walked in, I was just really impressed, just with how the building is itself. You don’t really walk in and see many offices look the way it does. The staff here— they are very welcoming, they greet you. They are very happy to see you. The doctors here are very empathetic, and they have your best interests at heart. Speaking with the doctor in the consultation, he was very reassuring, and that put my mind at ease. It was an easy recovery. If anyone in Flint or Bay City need to get any work done, I would recommend coming to 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."
Dillon Reviews His Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"Well, first off, I went and got my semi-annual dentist checkup, and they said it would be about time to get my wisdom teeth out, so I wanted to get it done before school. So I got my wisdom teeth out, so that way, I'd be ready for the fall semester. It went great; I got them all out — I actually had five wisdom teeth, so I got that extra one, and I didn't really want to keep them, but when I came home, my mom had all five. Oh, it's been really nice working with Dr. Frey. He's a really enjoyable, fun person, and I think that's a big part of the profession — not just to do quality work but also just to communicate and enjoy your experience. His staff is really fun, like just being here today. Just a lot of good energy and a lot of fun people around here. If any of my friends or family needed their wisdom teeth extracted within the Davison, Flint, or Flushing area, I would definitely recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons."
Rachel Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"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."
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."
