We offer wisdom teeth and surgical dental extractions.
Wisdom teeth can be safely and gently removed by our experienced Practitioner Dr David Taub.
Wisdom teeth (third molars) get their name as they are the last teeth to come in during young adulthood.
As part of a dental visit, our dentist will examine you to see if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly

As people age, they are at greater risk of health problems and that includes potential problems with wisdom teeth. Regular dental visits are important so our dentist can evaluate not only your wisdom teeth but your overall oral health too. Our dentist can then help you prevent and manage dental disease and achieve optimal oral health.
