Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars. They are typically the last teeth to erupt in the mouth, and they usually come in during the late teen years or early twenties. In many cases, there is not enough room for wisdom teeth to erupt properly in the mouth and wisdom teeth extraction becomes necessary. If there is not enough room for wisdom teeth in the mouth, they may become misaligned or impacted (stuck in the gums and jaw). That unfortunately can lead to several serious issues, including the following dental problems:
- Damage to the adjacent teeth
- Damage to the jawbone
- Damage to the nerves
- Tooth decay
- Periodontal disease
- Swelling and stiffness
The skilled dentists at Young Family Dental can use X-rays to determine the positioning of wisdom teeth. If it is decided that they need to be removed, our dental team will ensure that the wisdom teeth extraction is performed as painlessly and comfortably as possible. We recommend that individuals who are going away for a period time, such as for a mission or college, have a wisdom teeth extraction procedure done before leaving to prevent future dental problems.
We invite anyone who may be suffering from wisdom tooth pain to call any of our Utah dental offices in Riverton, American Fork, Saratoga Springs, or Orem today to learn more about wisdom teeth extraction or to schedule a personal consultation with one of our dentists. Our team has performed wisdom teeth extraction for thousands of patients and we are highly experienced and effective in this treatment.
Proper Wisdom Teeth Extraction is valuable for everyone’s health and well-being, and at Young Family Dental, we love taking care of our customers.

“These guys are awesome! I had a tooth break on a Friday afternoon and they got me in right away! I’ve since seen 3 different dentists there and have no complaints. The office staff is incredible and friendly. I still am not a huge fan of going to the dentist, but this office has really helped alleviate my fears and dental anxiety. I would recommend them to anyone.”
I’ve known Dr. Chris for over 10 years, and my experience with him has been awesome. I got Invisalign with him to straighten my teeth, and it was incredible to have straight teeth! It was great, too, that I was an adult and I didn’t have to walk around with braces like a teenage weirdo. Chris and YFD are excellent, I highly recommend them.
Anne Marie Gross referred me to your office and has had nothing but great things to say about you! I am looking forward to scheduling an appointment soon!
Deron Gross- when I went to young family dental they treated me very nicely and took great care of me:) appreciate all the work they’ve done:)
I took both my 8 year old and 3 year old daughters there, and it was great experience from beginning to end. It was the first time for my 3 year old (don’t judge me ?) Jacqueline was great at making it a fun experience for her. Jessica helped take care of my 8 year old who had some infection on a tooth she had worked on a while ago. And the dentist was great too. Overall, everyone was friendly, everything was clean, and at the end I had a credit on my account that I didn’t know was there which was an added bonus.
