Wisdom teeth are just not necessary these days. That’s because we are able to better preserve our natural teeth so they don’t get worn out or lost as quickly as in the past. Nowadays, wisdom teeth are more likely to cause complications than they are to be useful. It’s best to get them extracted.

And even though some people in Anchorage are afraid of the wisdom tooth extraction procedure, it can actually be a very easy and comfortable procedure. Even if you’ve put off wisdom tooth extraction until after they’ve become impacted, we have the technology and techniques to make your wisdom tooth extraction more comfortable.

A Welcoming Office

Even though you’re coming to our office for oral surgery, it doesn’t have to feel like it. At Excellence in Dentistry, we believe in welcoming everyone to our office like family. Our office is designed to be a relaxing, warm environment. The office is designed to help you feel serene from the moment you enter and through your entire treatment.

Every room is designed to help you feel comfortable, with extra cushions on the chairs, pillows, blankets, and even slippers. It can feel more like a resort than a dentist’s office–we want you to be as comfortable as possible.

Laser Dentistry

But it’s not just the office that’s designed for your comfort. We have incorporated dental technologies into the procedure that can make wisdom tooth extraction faster and more comfortable.

Laser dentistry is truly a world apart from dentistry that’s done using more traditional tools. The procedure is faster and more precise–you won’t spend as long in the chair and the only areas affected are the areas that are treated. Lasers cause less discomfort, and they promote healing, in part because they sterilize the area to reduce the risk of infection.

IV Sedation

We understand that for many people, it’s just not possible to get really comfortable for a procedure like wisdom tooth extraction. You’d rather just “miss” the whole thing.

We hear you and understand. That’s why we are happy to offer IV sedation. IV sedation lets us put you in a deeper level of sedation so that you can be more relaxed during your extraction. The whole procedure will pass quickly and you’ll barely be aware of it, if at all. There’ll be no discomfort during the procedure, and less discomfort after.

A Better Experience for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

We understand that many people are nervous about wisdom tooth extraction. Let us assure you that it’s nothing to be afraid of. In fact, at our office it’s a much more comfortable procedure than you could ever have imagined.
