Only a few lucky people are born without wisdom teeth. For the rest of us, they typically make their entrance in our early teens to mid-twenties. The good news is that not all of us need to have our wisdom teeth removed. But if your wisdom teeth are causing you pain or swelling, or if they are damaging the adjacent teeth, they should be taken out to help keep your oral health at peak.
Check out these three short videos to learn why some wisdom teeth need to be removed.

So the time has come for you to have your wisdom teeth removed.
You might be nervous or anxious, but you are not alone! Many of our new patients have heard the common, unpleasant stories about wisdom teeth extractions. For most patients, this will be their first surgical experience.
Let us assure you that this procedure is much simpler and more comfortable than you might expect. Dr. Polyakov has treated thousands of patients just like you, with various wisdom teeth problems, and a lot of our patients have commented afterwards on how easy, comfortable, and trouble-free the surgery was. As a matter of fact, many of our patients have stated that this was the most comfortable and pleasant experience they have had in a dental office! Our staff’s attentiveness during every phase of the procedure is a substantial reason.
In our office, we strive not only to give our patients quality dental care, but also to always have someone on hand who is available to offer insight, or even reassurance, for the more timid. You can rest assured that our office staff will not leave you unattended or uninformed. We make it a priority to fully understand each of our patients’ needs and provide appropriate treatment and anesthesia options. Our office may be modern, but we strive for old-fashioned, personalized care for each patient. Part of this great personalized care includes keeping you well-informed.
During your consultation, we will diagnose your condition and decide the best and most appropriate treatment option for your condition and situation. Even if your wisdom teeth are causing you pain, extracting them may not be the only option. As for the recovery period, many of our patients have this procedure performed on a Friday and return to work on Monday.
