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.

12/10 would recommend Dr Guorgui to anyone in need of oral surgical procedures. He and his staff were very professional, friendly and just made me feel prepared and comfortable to undergo my procedure. What I valued a lot was the time taken by his staff and well as by him, to discuss my concerns and give me realistic expectations on the procedure which I did (wisdom teeth extractions). The entire procedure was as quick as was expected, and I was impressed by the post op care and instructions given. I hope I don’t have any more oral surgeries to undergo, but if it ever came to that-Dr G is my only choice to consider.

I had the best experience with Dr. Guorgi and his team! Considering it was a more complicated surgery, Dr. Guorgi gave me full confidence I was in the right hands, and rest assured, in very safe hands. The entire staff were friendly and welcoming. To say that I was feeling nervous was an understatement, but Dr. Guorgi and his team took the time to reassure me. The procedure went well and I would 100% recommend this team for anyone!

Dr. Guorgui and Nurse Vicky were amazing - from the week before my wisdom teeth surgery until I was fully recovered, they provided me with exceptional care. I have terrible anxiety, and they knew how scared I was for the procedure, so they both went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable. Even after my surgery was complete, they were always available to answer any questions or concerns that I had. They even made time for me to go into their office as soon as I reached out and felt like I needed a check up a few weeks after. I have nothing but good words to say about this dentistry and would recommend anyone to go here if you need your wisdom teeth removed. Thank you so much for everything!

The team sent over lots of information packets and videos to watch before the surgery which helped alot to ease any nerves I had. When I got there they checked that I was okay with everything and although I don’t remember much it felt like an overall 10/10 experience. I definitely recommend this team for any other dental surgeries!

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.

Thank you Dr. Guorgie and your team !

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!
