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.

Everyone was very friendly during my experience today. The doctor made sure I was very well informed before going in for the procedure. I was extremely nervous for my procedure and the nurse in the room made sure I felt calm. I am very happy with my experience.

I have delayed my wisdom teeth removal for a while due to personal reasons and overall being scared of the procedure. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to go with this team. All stages of surgery were talked through for me and I was ready for what will happen. It is my first day of surgery so I’m swollen but I have been provided with all needed medications and instructions on further service. Great results from amazing team!

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!
