Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last to appear in your mouth which means they often show up when your jaw has run out of room.
This means they either elbow their way in or get trapped under the gums, situations that may require wisdom teeth removal.
The dentists at Brooklyn Heights Dental® in Brooklyn, NY, offer gentle wisdom teeth removal for even complex cases.
Gentle, Convenient Care Close to Home Serving Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene, and all of Brooklyn
Problematic wisdom teeth that get stuck under the gums, crowd other teeth, or grow in at an angle cause inflammation and can increase your risk of gum infections, sinus issues, cavities, and damage to other teeth. Our experienced dentists can gently remove these molars and relieve any resulting pain while minimizing your risk of future dental problems.
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
Our state-of-the-art facility is designed for your comfort. If you have a sensitive gag reflex, low pain tolerance, or anxiety, we can offer sedation to keep you comfortable during treatment. We offer both nitrous oxide and intravenous (IV) sedation to ensure you stay relaxed throughout your entire treatment.
Treatment for Complex Cases
Dr. Eugene D. Stanislaus and Dr. Lisa Reid are not average dentists. Both are exceptionally trained and can handle complex wisdom tooth cases so that you can avoid having to see an oral surgeon. Dr. Stanislaus has studied advanced dental techniques with world-renowned doctors and is a fellow of the International College of Dentists. Dr. Reid is a trained prosthodontist and as a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Prosthodontics at the NYU College of Dentistry, also trains other dentists.

I will highly recommend Brooklyn Heights Dental. Their services are splendid in all matters. Clear information, follow-up in case of a health insurance concern and most importantly, they accommodated my needs. I have PTSD and sometimes, noises, textures, and the anesthesia could make me feel unwell. After spoking with the hygienist, and Dr. Reid they were extra careful, and constantly making sure that I feel heard, safe and comfortable in the chair. THANK YOU!View More Google Reviews

What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, are teeth that come in during your late teens or early twenties. While it's normal to have a little discomfort when they appear, if you have pain, you should see a dentist to avoid complications.
Signs You Should Have Wisdom Teeth Removed But Remember: Some People Experience No Symptoms
While pain is a symptom of wisdom teeth problems, some people don't experience any discomfort. Signs that you may need your wisdom teeth removed include:
- Swollen, tender, or bleeding gums
- Jaw pain or stiffness in the jaw or difficulty opening your mouth
- Bad breath, which can be a sign of an infection
- Sinus pain as upper teeth push against your sinuses
- Misalignment as these new molars push other teeth out of place
During regularly scheduled exams, we can monitor these teeth before they have physical effects on your health.

Early Wisdom Teeth Removal
Many parents bring in their teens to have us examine their wisdom teeth even before symptoms occur.
Using 3-D imaging technology, Drs. Stanislaus and Reid can detect problems early on and proactively recommend the appropriate treatment.
Early planning lets parents schedule surgery to remove problematic teeth at a convenient time, such as during school vacations. Early extraction is also easier during the teenage years when the jawbone is softer.
Removing Wisdom Teeth We Put Patient Comfort First
Brooklyn Heights Dental® makes care convenient and more affordable. Because of their advanced dental training, Drs. Stanislaus and Reid have the skills to treat even complex wisdom tooth cases without having to refer patients to an oral surgeon. Here's a look at how wisdom teeth are typically removed:
All our treatments are driven by conservatism, aesthetics, and comfort.

Will It Hurt?
We understand that the thought of tooth extraction can be concerning. However, if you are already suffering from problems caused by wisdom teeth, treatment will bring welcome relief.
During recovery, you can minimize discomfort by following our post-operative instructions. For simple teeth extractions, over-the-counter pain medications are usually all people need to manage discomfort.
