Dr. Adam Jensen will help you save your smile!

While our focus is on preventive and restorative care, sometimes the best option for your health is a tooth extraction. An extraction may be recommended when a tooth is:

  • Severely decayed/infected
  • Cracked or damaged
  • Causing intense pain
  • Crowding other teeth

At Chugach Dental, we take pride in offering efficient tooth extractions designed with your comfort in mind. Call Dr. Adam Jensen at (907) 868-3000  to get a FREE second opinion and to learn more about tooth removal.

New Patient Special: $199 for a complete exam and full mount series of x-rays.

Dr. Adam Jensen offers FREE second opinions, and a $99 new patient special that includes a limited exam and x-ray. Plus, ask about deals on tooth whitening treatments and no-cost cosmetic Botox consults.

Comfort comes first

Our focus is on ensuring your comfort throughout your tooth extraction. Dr. Jensen will work with you to make sure you’re relaxed and at-ease. Here’s how he does it:

1. Starting with local anesthetic, Dr. Jensen makes sure you’re fully numb before starting an extraction.

2. If needed, we can prescribe Halcion, a medication that reduces anxiety.

3. During the procedure, nitrous oxide can further increase relaxation. Unlike other sedation options, nitrous oxide wears off quickly and there is little to no recovery time.

Just let us know what you need to feel confident and comfortable about your tooth extraction. We’ll create a custom treatment plan just for you.

Restoration options

When a tooth is extracted, it can affect both the aesthetics and function of your smile. Left unrestored, a lost tooth may contribute to:

  • Dissatisfaction with the appearance of your smile
  • Bone loss in the jaw, a process known as resorption
  • Increased risk of decay and disease in neighboring teeth
  • Shifting of adjacent teeth, leading to other issues

Our restoration options include durable and natural-looking implants, bridges, and dentures. We work with a local trusted lab to produce beautiful crowns and restorations.

In some cases, for example, when a tooth is causing crowding or when extracting a wisdom tooth, a restoration may not be recommended.

How long will it take to recover?

While a tooth extraction can provide immediate relief from a bad toothache, some recovery time is still needed. Expect to take it easy for 48-72 hours.

Can I eat/drink right after my extraction?

Following an extraction, stick to soft foods and liquids for about a day. Avoid chewy, crunchy, and sticky foods until you’re fully healed.

Can you do wisdom tooth extractions?

Yes! Dr. Adam Jensen works with both teenagers and adults to comfortably and quickly extract painful or impacted wisdom teeth.

Do you offer emergency appointments?

If you’ve got a bad toothache or worry that a tooth is infected, see us right away. We offer same-day extractions with no appointment needed.

We accept all dental insurances!

We are in-network with Premera Blue Cross, Delta Dental, Moda, Aetna, Cigna, United Concordia, MetLife, TRICARE, and more. We’ll file paperwork, explain what’s covered, and help you maximize your insurance benefits.

Have a question about how much your tooth extraction will cost with dental insurance? Call our Anchorage dentist office today at (907) 868-3000.

No insurance? No problem.

With financing options like CareCredit or our Healthy Smile Club (starting at $45 a month), there are ways to pay for your tooth removal even if you don’t have dental insurance. Ask our friendly front office staff for more information about payment options.

Shani Rinner

I am a new patient at Chugach Dental. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Jensen cleaned my teeth himself (never had a dentist only hygienist do that before). He was very gentle and gave me options. My follow up visit was for a filling (😩) which I was not looking forward to. Dr. Jensen continually checked on me throughout the procedure and I am feeling great the following day. Thank you!

Katie Strong

All the staff were incredible. The COVID safety procedures made me feel very comfortable. Adam really listened to me to understand my concerns and provided helpful information for all my questions. He was also great working with my toddler. I was happy to that we talked through different options and I didn’t feel pressured to pick anything that didn’t seem right to me. I also felt respected and supported in my choices.

Teagan Presler

I found Dr. Jensen when I was having a dental emergency, and they were able to fit me in within 18 hours of calling. Dr Jensen and his staff are super friendly and helpful. As someone who is super nervous at the dentist, they made the experience as comfortable and easy as possible. They are up front with costs and provide estimates for services before they are provided, even same day. I would highly recommend Dr. Jensen and his team!

Ryan Johnston

I have had a long standing anxiety of going to the dentist. I have recently moved to Chugach Dental. Dr. Adam made every effort to make sure that I was comfortable and informed about what was going on during the appointment.
Dr. Adam and his staff are personable, caring and attentive. His level of personal care is far and above anything I have received in other offices. He even reaches out after each appointment to check in about how I am doing.

Paula Rey

Dr. Adam Jensen/Chugach Dental Clinic really cares about their patients. Excellent, professional and personable staff. I established myself as a patient today. I had my teeth cleaned today and I did not have to reach for Motrin after the cleaning. Dr. Jensen actually cleaned my teeth, I know I will be a reoccurring patient. Highly recommend Chugach Dental.

Rebecca Mamrol

Adam is a great dentist! He makes the whole process easy, listens and is very considerate to your needs, and I’m always confident I’m doing what I need to for healthy teeth. He carefully explains what and why things need to be done. Pricing and his recommendations for procedures are incredibly fair. Couldn’t be a better dentist to start, or re-start your care with.
