Wisdom teeth, or 3rd molars, frequently become a problem when they begin erupting between the ages of 17 and 25. Because most patients’ mouths cannot accommodate these four teeth, the lack of space makes it likely that wisdom teeth will become impacted and harm your smile. Impacted teeth increase your risk for infection and disease, damage to other teeth, and overall discomfort that hinders everyday activities like eating. To preserve the health of your mouth, sometimes wisdom teeth extractions are necessary. The good news is that these procedures are now safer and more comfortable than ever thanks to our surgical expertise, minimally invasive techniques, and anesthesia options. We’re here to help you maintain the health and beauty of your smile with extraction of wisdom teeth in Voorhees, NJ!
Wisdom teeth extractions are one of our most common and routine procedures. And with decades of experience in wisdom teeth removal, we have perfected the techniques that minimize pain and bleeding and accelerate your healing. Using our CBCT technology, we take highly detailed digital images of your mouth in order to plan the least invasive extraction technique.
During your surgery, you will be comfortably sedated with a custom anesthesia option, whether oral sedation, IV sedation, or nitrous oxide.

We do all we can to ensure you have a smooth surgery, but we understand that recovery from wisdom teeth extractions can last for a few days and requires that you follow a few key steps.
