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
Lauren Reviews Her Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"I came to Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons to get all four of my wisdom teeth out. Not many people want to get their wisdom teeth out, but it was time, so I came in. I was extremely nervous to come in to get my wisdom teeth out because I hear all the crazy stories about how awful it is and how it hurts really bad. The staff—they were great. They were so nice, and they were just very personable. I'm sure they expect people to be nervous, so they really know how to just calm your nerves and answer all your questions, so they were really great with that. Dr. Lesneski came in when I was having my eval (evaluation), and he introduced himself, and he was very nice. He answered all my questions, like I said. It was overall a great experience and definitely helped ease my nerves. My procedure went well. I don't remember it, which was great, but once I got home, I didn't have hardly any pain, which is great. If any of my friends or family in Grand Blanc, Fenton, Flint, need to get their wisdom teeth out, I would definitely recommend coming to 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."
Michael Reviews His Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"Why I came to see Dr. Frey was because I needed my wisdom teeth out. I was in pain—I was having a lot of pain in the back of my mouth. I went to the dentist, and they said that my teeth were coming in wrong, and then from there, they took me right to Dr. Frey. I never had any type of surgery before, so when they said that it was a type of surgery, I was kind of freaking out. But when I knew I was coming here and everything, it was fine. It was quick, easy. It was no pain at all after. I was fine—he took care of me. The staff here is really nice; they're friendly. Dr. Frey—he's a great guy. He can make you smile if you're nervous or anything before. He's there to take care of you. I recommend Dr. Frey and their team to anyone that's nervous or needing to get something done."
Mike Reviews His Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"As I first walked into the building, it felt warm and inviting. The receptionist greeted me with a smile and I was glad to have such a great staff to answer my questions. My doctor was great. He helped calm the mood and told some good jokes and I was able to relax and feel comfortable. My surgery went well. I had a quick recovery. I had an amazing experience here, and I would recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center."
Daniel Reviews His Wisdom Tooth Procedure
"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."
