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 By Claire M

Over the years four members of my family (ranging from 8 years to adult) have been under the care of Dr. Serlo for wisdom teeth and stubborn baby tooth extractions. He is knowledgeable, honest, friendly, efficient, and does reliably expert work. He has earned our trust and gratitude, and I have recommended him to family and friends numerous times.

Patient Review By Emma T

Nobody likes getting their wisdom teeth out, but Dr. Serlo and his staff made it easy. He was very thorough in obtaining a medical history. His surgical technique allowed me to heal quickly. I felt cared for by his staff from the start to the completion of the surgery. No matter where I wind up living in life, I will likely come back to Dr. Serlo for any surgical care. They treat you like family.

There are very few doctors that I recommend to family and friends. Dr Sacco is at the top of my list. She is amazing and sincerely caring. There’s something very special about her.

Patient Review By Gene G

How can you use the phrase pleasant experience and dental procedure in the same sentence? Choose OMSA, of course! Dr. Ruvo and his entire staff provided first class care. I could not have been more pleased.
