Wisdom Teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

My 16 year old daughter had her wisdom teeth removed. Her teeth were impacted, and it was a difficult surgery, but she had no bruising, did not require Tylenol 3 and had very little swelling. The nursing staff were very supportive both before and after the surgery and called a few hours after the surgery to check on my daughters recovery. Highly professional and took great care of my daughter.

Overall, my experience was amazing. I was very nervous going into this procedure as I've never had a surgery before. When I first met Dr. Guorgui, I expressed my nervousness and he was more than kind and gave me his reassurance that everything would be perfect-- which it was. The day of the surgery, the nurses were amazing. Again, I expressed my concern and my fear of the procedure to Nurse Alma and she did a fantastic job talking to me and calming me down to distract me from the nerves before the procedure. Post-op, Nurse Maria was kind enough to leave me a message and call me back to ensure I was doing well after the procedure. Although I've never met her, she was very kind and nurturing. I felt very taken care of. I couldn't have asked for a better team perform this procedure.

Dr. Guorgui is very professional and compassionate; he phoned me the night before the procedure and listened to all my concerns and fears. He explained the procedure in details. I even received an email demonstrating what to do before and after the extractions in details. On the day of the extractions, both dr. Guorgui and his staff were very considerate, patient and understanding of my condition. They took every measure to make me comfortable. The extractions went very smooth, way beyond my expectations. I also received a follow up call from his nurse checking on me and how I am feeling. I am really thankful for this great team!

Going into the operation i was a little bit nervous about ivy sedation, but once i sat in the chair and Dr Guorgui walked in, all my worries were gone. His assistants take such good care of you and make the procedure feel quick and easy. During my wisdom tooth extraction i did not feel anything and it felt like i was only sitting there for five minutes. I recommend everyone to go to Dr Guorgui if they need their wisdom teeth removed or any other surgical work done on their teeth. 10/10 experience!

I was very scared to get my 4 wisdom teeth extracted all at the same appointment. However, time flew so fast I did not even notice that the surgery was done! There were no complications after the surgery after following all the instructions that were given. Thank you!

Dr. Guorgui is amazing he did a wisdom tooth extraction for my son a few years ago and recently he did another wisdom tooth extraction for my other son. He has amazing bedside manners and makes you feel comfortable before and after the procedure. Both procedures went well with no complications and the healing process was quick with minimal swelling. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends!
