The overwhelming majority of Dr. Gadler’s patients report little or no swelling and pain with a recovery time of about 1-2 days after removal of their wisdom teeth.

The Fletcher Hills Dental Implant & Oral Surgery Center is a beautiful, new, state-of-the-art, full-scope facility designed with consideration for the patient’s care and comfort in mind.
