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.

Patient Review from Seth K
Going into it I was very nervous as I've never had a procedure done like this before. Coming out of it I was surprised with how quick, easy, and painless everything was and I am very thankful for Dr. Wagner and for ensuring all went well!

Patient Review from Jazmin C
I do not even know where to begin. I have so much respect and appreciation for Dr. Wagner and his staff. I went in for my wisdom teeth extraction with fear at the top of my list. Everyone was extremely understanding of my fears and walked me through every step. They were very calm and patient with me. To top everyone's professionalism, Dr. Wagner himself, reached out to see how I was feeling after the extraction. No amount will ever express my gratitude to Dr. Wagner and his amazing staff. I am very grateful to everyone at Dr. Wagner's and will definitely recommend his office to everyone. Thank you so much to Dr. Wagner and his staff.

Patient Review from Chuck C
Although I suffer from severe odontophobia (fear of dentistry), my wisdom teeth had to come out. Dr Wagner and the staff were kind, understanding, compassionate and professional. I'm glad I went through the procedure with Dr Wagner instead of anywhere else. He called me personally the next day to check on my status, and was genuinely concerned for me. I hope I dont ever have to go for further major oral surgery, but if I did I would return to Dr Wagner's office without hesitation.

Patient Review from Jessica C
Everyone is so friendly and helpful, and Dr. Wagner is super knowledgeable and so, so kind. I was really nervous to have my wisdom teeth out, but the staff's attitude made me feel at ease. I experienced virtually no "pain" after having them removed--just a mild throbbing that I would describe more as discomfort than pain. After the first 24 hours, I didn't need anything stronger than an Aleve (220mg naproxen sodium) to manage the discomfort. He did an excellent job, and I absolutely recommend choosing Dr. Wagner for wisdom teeth extraction or any other work you may need done!

Patient Review from Bekah K
Dr. Wagner was very kind, calming, and professional. The entire staff greeted me with smiles and I felt completely cared for from the moment I walked through the doors to the moment I left. I especially liked that Dr. Wagner called to make sure I was okay a couple days later.

Patient Review from Susan K
I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is in need of your particular services. I can not express how very happy I was with my overall experience. I was very apprehensive due to upper right location and infection of both tooth and sinuses. I am amazed at how little discomfort I have had since my surgery. I was having some serious pain on the right side of my face, that is now almost gone. Expected my cheek and mouth to be swollen and really sore, but swelling was barely noticeable. I am so happy to feeling better again. Thank you so much Dr. Wagner and your wonderful staff.
