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 Diane M
Our 15 year old daughter had her 4 wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Shaikh. Both Dr. Shikh and Nurse Sara took excellent care of our daughter. The procedure was clearly explained to us at the consultation. We received specific post-care instructions which mirrored their website information. We were very relieved that our daughter was only receiving "Twighlight sedation". We were able to be with our daughter up until the procedure began. They had the appropriate monitoring equipment in place. Dr. Shaikh is also an MD and Board Certified in the use of Anesthesia. This is critically important. Our daughter did not experience any significant swelling...she did have an ice pack on her face once we got home. Rotating 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. The next day she was fine, as if nothing had happened. She went back to school on Monday. We are extremely pleased with the care that our daughter received. We would definitely return to OraFacial for a dental procedure and recommend them to family and friends. Thank you!

For wisdom teeth removal, this was a quick and orderly operation. I received many calls in the upcoming days to my operation where questions were sorted out appropriately. I didn't have to wait long and Dr. Morales did an incredible job. Highly recommended!

Patient Review by Dr. E
My younger son had four wisdom teeth removed on 3 July 2015. He had no problems whatsoever from the procedure. My older son had four wisdom teeth removed on 22 July 2015. I have nothing but words of praise, gratitude and awe for Dr. Zakir Shaikh and his staff. This office has to be in the running for the number one orafacial and dental implant surgery office in Orlando, possibly central Florida. On any standard or criteria of assessment, the office and its associated healthcare professionals rank exemplary. Dr. Shaikh is a humble, modest, caring, and skilled medical professional. Moreover, not only is he a skilled oral surgeon, he is a Board certified medical doctor as well. For me, that provided added assurance that my sons were in good hands for their oral surgery and its associated IV sedation. I highly recommend Dr. Shaikh and his staff. My sons are both doing well, post-operative, and our family is grateful. Thank you Dr. Shaikh, Brittany, and Joanna (attending during procedures) for your outstanding and professional care.

Patient Review by Bernard S
Great Place! Took my daughter to Dr. Zakir Shaikh to remove all 4 wisdom teeth in July. I was expecting her to be in a lot of pain after the surgery specially with all the horror stories that I had heard others to have gone through. But to my surprise she was in little pain and was back to normal the next day with minimal need of taking any pain pills. The office also called the same day to check on her and answer any questions that we might have, even though they answered all the questions prior to procedure. I will definitely recommend Dr. Shaikh and his office to any body who is in need of skilled Oral Surgeon as he was extremely caring and a true professional in his field, and that is sometimes very hard to find nowadays.Thank you Dr. Shaikh.

We were referred to Orofacial & Dental Implant Surgery by Premiere Orthodontics, Waterford Lakes, and Dr. Jason Battle. It is clear that the quality of care our family has received from Dr. Battle and his team is well replicated by Dr. Zakir Shaikh and his staff. It is comforting to know that such caring professionals are attending to the dental/orthodontic/orofacial surgery needs of my family. We had the opportunity to interact with Sylvia (front desk), Sara (intake), Joanna (attending), Jessica (Finance), and Dr. Zakir Shaikh. We were pleased all around.

Patient Review by Christopher D
I was very nervous about having 2 of my wisdom teeth removed this week, but the staff quickly put me at ease. I found the nurse to be very kind and comforting. I'd also like to recognize Dr. Shaikh, because only after one day of surgery I have very little pain/discomfort and minimal swelling. A credit to his experience and skill as a surgeon. I would whole heartedly recommend your office to my friends and family. Well done!
