While most patients request to be asleep for their procedure, several anesthetic options are available based on each patient’s needs and desires. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Todd Haruki and Dr. Neil Oishi are uniquely qualified in treating wisdom teeth. The latest digital technology enables them to provide exceptional care in a safe and comfortable environment.
