Almost everyone has wisdom teeth and, eventually, almost everyone needs them removed.
The oral health professionals at Wisdom Teeth Specialists of Utah have the knowledge, experience and dedication required to perform even the most complicated extractions. We are committed to a compassionate, comfortable experience for every patient we treat.
Preserving Your Oral Health
The wisdom teeth are notorious for causing problems.
For some patients, the rear molars are poorly positioned, which can result in overcrowding in the mouth, damage to nearby teeth and jaw misalignment. For others, impaction is an issue, and the teeth are unable to fully erupt through the gums.
In either case, extraction is necessary to prevent future complications.
At Wisdom Teeth Specialists of Utah, however, we take a proactive approach to preserving oral health. That means extraction for most patients, even those whose rear molars appear to be emerging normally.
Why? Research shows that patients who keep these teeth are at an increased risk for developing gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss. Gum disease has also been linked to heart disease, diabetes and other serious medical conditions.
Extraction is a safe and effective treatment, and one that promotes a healthy mouth.
Managing Your Comfort
Anxiety or nervousness is common for patients undergoing tooth extractions, and the caring team at Wisdom Teeth Specialists of Utah is skilled at alleviating fears and putting patients at ease.
We work with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your every concern. Our goal is to provide a smooth and worry-free dental experience.
Anesthesia is instrumental in helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable.
Our doctors are trained and certified to offer a variety of anesthesia options, including oral sedation, nitrous oxide and IV sedation. Our patients can, in many cases, choose their own preferred method of anesthesia.
Providing Expert Care
Surgery to remove the rear molars can be challenging, requiring the expertise of a qualified oral surgeon.
Both of our oral surgeons, Dr. Judd Partridge and Dr. Matthew Maxfield, have extensive surgical training in oral and maxillofacial surgery. And, as fellows of several medical organizations – including the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) and the Utah Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (UAOMS) – our oral surgeons remain up-to-date on the latest wisdom teeth removal research and techniques.
Dr. Partridge and Dr. Maxfield are supported by an experienced team of surgical assistants, who take every step to ensure the highest standard of patient care. We use the most advanced digital x-rays and computer video imaging equipment, to customize extraction to each patient’s individual needs.
