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.

Patient Review By Shanti A

I had all my wisdom teeth extracted 2 weeks ago. I was nervous during the day of the surgery but Dr. Stutts assured me that everything's going to be alright and put me at ease. Just like he said, the surgery went very smooth and I didn't even know when it started and ended. I'm really happy to say that I experienced zero pain after the surgery in the past two weeks. I want to thank Dr Stutts and his staff for making this procedure painless. He is the best oral surgeon around.

Patient Review By Haley H

I love Dr.Stutts office! I have never had surgery before and was very worried about going to his office to have my wisdom teeth removed. I already have horrible anxiety, so I knew that this wasn't gonna help it. BUT as soon as I walked in, I was greeted with a smile. The lady at the front desk was very talkative and helped ease my nerves before ever seeing Dr.Stutts. Once I met Dr.Stutts and he saw that my wisdom teeth needed to be removed, I let him know how nervous I was about getting my wisdom teeth removed. He helped put me at ease and joked along with me the whole way. He was so friendly and it helped me forget what I was even doing there in the first place. The scheduling was nice because I went back a week later for my wisdom teeth to be removed. Like I said I was very very worried on getting my wisdom teeth out but on the day of the surgery, I was as calm as could be. Dr.Stutts did amazing work and I was in and out no time! I also thought that it was extremely nice that he called my family the day of to make sure that I was recuperating after the surgery. I don't know many doctors that call to ask about their patients. I went back a few days later for a check up. Yet again, he was just as nice as he could be! I could not recommend Dr.Stutts enough!!!!!

Patient Review By Clay L

Dr. Stutt’s and staff are all comforting, informative, caring and helpful during a time of dental anxiety. They walked us (and my Daughter) through the entire process and eased her mind. Amber was extremely helpful and proactive with the insurance process and removed as much of the inconvenient paper work possible. The procedure process was also punctual and all scheduling occurred as planned with no waiting around. Thank You Clay S. Lowder
