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.

They were very kind and answered any questions we had. The procedure didn't take long and hurt a lot less than I had expected afterward. Dr.Christopher Brown was my oral surgeon and he made me laugh and feel at ease before the surgery.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial By Tara C

I finally made my first dentist appointment at the age of 27 because I've always had a fear of dentists. I find out I need to get 7 teeth taken out so my dentist office refer me to Brown & Neuwirth. At the consultation Dr. Brown told me the teeth I had in my mouth could kill me within 2 hours because of infection. I appreciated his straight forwardness because I knew I should have seen a dentist 3 abscesses ago! lol The day of surgery couldn't have gone any smoother. I was extremely nervous before going back & all I remember is laying in the chair, getting a iv in my arm then when I opened my eyes I was being helped to the car. I even went to my class later that night(with a driver of course!) I'm back at work feeling just fine. I would 100% recommend this office. I can officially say I no longer have a fear of anything related to the dentist. Thank you!

Our Latest Patient Testimonial By Ambria S

Our very first visit! My son went in on a Wednesday after school for consult and Friday morning 10am his wisdom teeth all four were out! Dr Neuwirth is WONDERFUL he treated my son great from beginning to end. The staff understood my son wanted his wisdom teeth out before summer and they had him scheduled right away. I would give everyone working there that came in contact with our family 5 stars! My daughter will definitely be having her wisdom teeth removed here. Absolutely zero complications my son was back at school Monday morning only missed the actual day of surgery. Thank you again!!

I took my son for a consult on removing his wisdom teeth. My son and I were very concerned but after we meet Dr. Brown he made both my son and I feel very comfortable. He was concerned with my sons overall health and he has great credentials. My sons surgery is next week and I feel very positive about it now.
