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.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

The last of my three boys will be having his wisdom teeth removed this week. Dr. Madion is an excellent surgeon and we have always been extremely pleased with the care our son's have received at Grand Traverse Oral Surgery. The office staff is wonderful and efficient as well as understanding and compassionate. We feel privileged to have had our children receive such excellent care from Dr. Madion and his staff.

Dr Wayne Olsen made me feel very at ease. He seems to be a very caring person and I am grateful that I had him. I was very impressed that he call me himself the next day to see how I was feeling. The staff is great. Thanks again Dr. Olsen. I will not forget your kindness. Marsha
