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.

Dr. Quitmeyer and his girls were so good to me. I was really nervous and scared, they calmed me down. They explained each thing they'd be doing to me. Dr. Quitmeyer also called me that evening of my surgery to check in on me.

I experienced lots of pain on Christmas Eve and the doctor was more than willing to call and talk on Christmas Day. He followed up with another call the next day to check up on how I was doing.
