Gentle Wisdom Teeth Removals

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 William F

Let’s be honest: Most people don’t really want to have to see an oral surgeon. It really helps that Dr. Ruvo and his team are very professional, but are also extremely warm and friendly, which puts you at ease. Dr. Ruvo takes the time to explain what’s involved in your procedure, and exactly what to expect during your recovery. You’re also taught everything you need to do to have the best outcome. I would recommend Dr. Ruvo and his team to anyone!

Patient Review By Emilie K

I had a complicated case and at every turn I was so impressed with Dr. Serlo and his team. They did an amazing job taking care of me. They explained everything to me (no surprises) and they did an incredible job during both procedures. They are a great team and I am so thankful for their expertise.

Patient Review By Sharon D

I appreciated his call in the evening after the extraction; he eased my concerns and fears. Gentleness during surgery was a surprise. The assistant patting me during the difficult part was so appreciated.

Patient Review By Heather A

I took my daughter Paige to Dr. Ruvo. He and his staff were wonderful! Paige had very little post - op sensitivity and it did not last long. I work in the dental field so I am familiar with extractions and the pain that goes along with extractions. He did an amazing job her ext site is healing beautifully. Thank you for taking such good care of Paige.

Patient Review By Michelle H

I called and got a consultation for my wisdom teeth in the same day! So convenient. Other places it would’ve been 2 weeks just to speak to someone. A week after the consult I went in for the extraction of my wisdom teeth. The assistant was so calming not once did I feel like a patient I felt more like a guest. All my concerns were taken seriously and attended to. How awesome! Great bedside manners and Dr. Serlo was so fast but not rushed just very efficient. I’m glad I didn’t get fully sedated because as well of a job as they did I didn’t need it! If you are questioning where to go for any oral surgery look no further!

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.
