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.

Dr 'Mark' and staff are the BEST. He verbally walked through the procedure as he operated so no surprises Discomfort was less than a routine cleaning. Hard to imagine the procedure being any better! Highly recommend this practice for oral surgery!

Dr. Russell and his staff explained exactly what they were going to do, told me how long and made sure I understood prior to leaving the office.

Dr. Drobny is the absolute best. So glad I am now a patient for life. Wisdom teeth removal went smooth even with the fear of the right bottom in front of the nerve she got it all out without a problem. Nothing but great things to say about Dr. Drobny. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to get done.

Patient Review

Everything was great. I had an issue with dry sock post surgery and I was told to come in immediately which was a relief! Dr. Russ carefully examined me and was very thorough, having me come back in 2 days for another check. One comment I'd like share is that the exam chairs in the Bartlett office appear to be old although in great condition. These chairs are a little tight for a larger person. I was embarrassed that the arm rest had difficulty going up. I didn't experience this problem in Elk Grove or Mt. Prospect.

The only thing I think should change is pay ahead instead of sitting there after taking care of bill. You are uncomfortable and just want to leave. Just a suggestion.🦷
