If you suffering from dental anxiety or have put off treatment, allow us to help you find the right option for sedation.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the molars at the very back of your mouth, and some people may only have 1 or 2, while others may have a full set of 4 covering the top and bottom of their jaw. Once your wisdom teeth start to grow in, they can cause complications such as crowding the rest of the teeth in your mouth, or be prone to developing cavities. Depending on each patient’s situation, we may recommend extracting their wisdom teeth in order to improve overall mouth health and functionality.
