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.

I have always had dental anxiety going back to my childhood, I had procrastinated on getting my wisdom teeth out for a long time. Dr. Guorgui and his team were exceptional and went out of their way to ensure it was as relaxing and comforting an experience as possible.

Very knowledgeable and thoughtful team, they did great work with me as a more nervous than I thought I would be patient, yet never once felt condescending. All the pre and post-op instructions are very clear and thorough; even after leaving the office I feel very well taken care of. Overall a great experience, I would 100% recommend.

The staff were very kind, it really seemed like my comfort was their top priority. Extraction was fast an easy, almost forgot I went in for extractions, the directions they sent for after care was clear and extremely helpful for any pain and cleanliness. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

I went in for the procedure with a lot of apprehension as I heard a lot of horror stories from friends and family about wisdom tooth extraction. However, I was surprised how quick and easy it ended up being. Dr. Guorgui ensured to calm me before and during the procedure with his encouraging words. The extraction itself took less than a minute! And I felt absolutely nothing. I couldn't believe it when the doctor said it was all done. Dr.Guorgui and his team made sure I had all the information I need for postoperative care. I was able to manage without any prescription pain killers. I promptly received a follow up call from Nurse Vicky who was very pleasant and answered all my questions. My recovery has been great and pain-free! Kudos the whole team.

I was so scared, worried and nervous about the wisdom teeth surgery removal, but honestly, the doctor and his team are so good and willing to provide you with the care that all you need and the nurse for IV sedation is so perfect too within 5 seconds I was sleeping, they put me in sleep and I woke up with everything was done and I don’t remember anything of the surgery, And after two days after my surgery, they called me to check on me and if I need anything, It was my first surgery here in Canada and I definitely recommend Dr.guorgui and his team.
