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.

Wisdom Teeth Reviews
Associates For Oral, Maxillofacial & Implant Surgery, LTD.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: I am so glad that this practice was referred to us, by our dental office, for the removal of my daughter's wisdom teeth. My daughter had an infection (food particle stuck) in one of her wisdom teeth, and it needed to be removed quickly, as she was in pain (but wanted to be put under for the procedure), so we had a consultation with Dr. Drobny on Friday, and were able to get the tooth pulled on Tuesday! Dr. Drobny is AMAZING! She was so thorough, explaining everything/showing us in detail via the xray, and so patient, answering all of our questions about the procedure and addressing our concerns. She was extremely personable and friendly and really made us feel comfortable being in her care. The entire Mt. Prospect staff was great...everyone from Jennifer & Laura (reception) & Susan (nurse/surgical asst.) to the nice lady who printed out our treatment plan and scheduled the surgery for us. In the Bartlett office, where my daughter had her procedure done - Terri (reception) and Denise (billing) were SUPERB! They were so fun & friendly and really put my daughter at ease by talking with her/laughing, making her feel comfortable and reassuring her that everything was going to be fine and over with before she even knew it...and they were right! Susan & Megan (nurses/surgical asst.) were great as well! Megan discussed everything post-surgery, gave us all of the information that we needed, and made sure we were good with any questions. I am so grateful and appreciative to everyone at both of these offices, who really made what was a scary situation for my daughter (her first time having anything like this done before), a piece of cake! Thank you!

I recently had a wisdom tooth removed by Dr. Russell Spinazze at the Mount Prospect office and it was a great experience. At my original consultation, he addressed all my concerns and answered every one of my questions. The procedure was totally pain-free, and I had absolutely no pain after the wisdom tooth removal - even without pain meds! Procedure was extremely quick and he was done before I expected! Every one of the staff that I encountered was friendly and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend and come back here again! Thank you so much!

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.

Very great friendly staff

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.
