Choose a Dentist Who Has Performed over 3000 Wisdom Teeth Extractions!

Experience Matters

Wisdom teeth surgery is one of the most common oral surgery procedures that dental patients receive. It is also a treatment that is technique sensitive, and you definitely want to choose a dentist with a lot of experience in this field. Dr. Shahin received his training for wisdom teeth extractions at New York Presbyterian Hospital and has performed over 3000 wisdom teeth extractions over the past decade, and his experience will immensely help improve your experience.

For many, this treatment is necessary to prevent wisdom teeth from causing discomfort or damage to existing teeth. Our Brooklyn, NY dental office helps patients protect their health and the appearance of their smiles with wisdom teeth removal surgery.


When Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Your wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically do not have enough space to grow into your jaw, alongside your other teeth. For this reason, your third molars can cause your other teeth to shift out of alignment and can produce discomfort as they’re doing so.

Third molars typically begin to emerge in your late teens or early twenties, but not all patients will need their wisdom teeth removed at the same age. If you have noticed that your wisdom teeth are beginning to poke through your gums, or if you’re experiencing any jaw discomfort, it’s important to visit our Brooklyn dentists as quickly as possible. Dr. Shahin takes each patient on a case-by-case basis to determine when removing wisdom teeth is necessary.

What is the Cost of Wisdom Teeth Removals?

Does My Insurance Cover Wisdom Teeth Extractions?

The good news is if you have an insurance plan that we accept, it usually covers either all or most of the cost. Different plans have different coverage levels, but with most plans, your estimated copay is $0 to $175 for each wisdom tooth extraction including your consultation and x-rays, and most plans have a deductible of $50 for each calendar year.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction and Recovery

When it’s time to have your third molars removed, we perform simple and complex wisdom teeth extractions. During your appointment, Dr. Shahin thoroughly numbs the treatment site with local anesthesia for your comfort. We ensure that your treatment is as painless and as quick as possible.

After your appointment, you may experience some swelling in the treatment areas. Any discomfort can be controlled with over-the-counter pain medication and residual bleeding can be helped with the use of soft gauze. It’s important to keep the treatment site clean, to help promote proper healing, and to brush your teeth gently, to avoid damage to sensitive tissues. Depending on the number of teeth that have been removed, you’ll begin to notice a decrease in swelling in just a few days.
