Make a smart decision about your wisdom teeth!

Have you been told by another dentist that you need your wisdom teeth removed RIGHT NOW? Get a free second opinion from Dr. Adam Jensen at Chugach Dental in Anchorage.

It’s true that wisdom teeth may need to be extracted if they’re:

  • Causing pain
  • Suffering from decay
  • Contributing to gum disease
  • Crowding other teeth

But if they’re not creating any negative health effects, a more conservative wait-and-see approach might be right for you. Call us at (907) 868-3000 to schedule your appointment and to learn more about your options.

Just for you — our best-in-Anchorage New Patient Special!

Designed for your comfort

We go above and beyond to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible throughout your wisdom tooth removal.

  • We begin by making sure you’re very numb and that you can’t feel a thing before we get started.
  • We also offer Halcion, a prescription medication that decreases anxiety and helps you to “forget” the procedure once it’s over. If this is something you’re interested in, let us know.
  • During treatment, nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas), a gentle and effective sedative is available to make you feel relaxed and a little tingly. Laughing gas wears off quickly so there’s no “hangover” effect.

We know that every person is different. We’ll work with you to find the right level of sedation for you. Just let us know how you’re feeling and what we can do to help improve your experience.

Wisdom tooth removal for teenagers and adults

Whether you’re the parent of a teenager who’s starting to feel some discomfort due to wisdom teeth or you’re an adult who never had their wisdom teeth out, Dr. Adam Jensen can help.

He’ll start by assessing your wisdom teeth and how they’re affecting your health and quality of life. Together you’ll discuss your options and decide if your wisdom teeth need to be removed. It might be best to take care of it sooner rather than later to avoid complications down the road, which might require an emergency wisdom tooth removal.

Whatever you decide, Dr. Jensen is here to support you and help you make the best decision for your dental health.

What are “impacted” wisdom teeth?

This is when a wisdom tooth becomes “stuck” below the gums or is misaligned. It can be painful or lead to gum disease and/or cavities. We may recommend extracting an impacted wisdom tooth.

Should teenagers have their wisdom teeth out?

Teenagers usually recover faster than adults so it often makes sense to have wisdom teeth extracted sooner rather than later. But it really depends on the person and the health of their wisdom teeth.

Can wisdom teeth get cavities?

Yes, and because wisdom teeth are hard to reach and brush, they’re even more susceptible to cavities than the rest of your teeth. If it’s difficult to keep your wisdom teeth clean, it might be worth considering wisdom teeth removal.

How long does it take to recover from a wisdom tooth extraction?

Most people will be back to normal within a week or so. If you have your wisdom teeth removal done by Dr. Jensen, we’ll talk more about aftercare instructions and how to recover quickly.

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.

I had not been to a dentist in quite awhile and I’m so glad I picked Chugach Dental. Dr. Adam was gentle with me during the cleaning, and staff members were very kind and professional. Prices were very reasonable and service was prompt. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for the best dentist in town!

PS Make sure to check out the awesome hiking pictures of Dr. Adam and his dog all around the office!

I hadn’t been to the dentist in an embarrassingly long time. Dr. Adam and the staff provided care in a supportive way that made me feel comfortable. Their attention extended beyond just my teeth, and it was nice to be treated with such understanding. I liked that they had options for squeamish folks and could do so many different services; I feel like its a good one-stop option. Also, the team here seemed good-natured (fun and cohesive) and genuinely enjoyed helping me out. It will be way easier to come back to Chugach. Thanks guys!

Dr. Adam Jensen (or Dr. Adam as we know him) has been our dentist for the last few years, and we were thrilled to learn he opened his own practice! Dr. Adam has been there for us when dental emergencies happen, and we can trust him with our treatment plans and routine care. He and his staff are all so friendly and personable, and treated us with care and kindness. It’s great to know we have a dental practice and a dentist we can count on. As an added bonus, we love to hear stories about his latest Alaskan adventure and see the pictures of his dog around the office. 5 stars!

Chugach Dental has taken my anxiety out of that dreaded dental visit. Finally! I went in as a new patient for a cleaning and my hygienist was both enjoyable and thorough. Dr.Jensen took his time after my cleaning to discuss the health of my teeth and gums, changes I should make to my routine and future dental work that was only deemed necessary. I appreciate a conservative dentist because my dental insurance only covers my cleanings. Dr. Jensen is young and healthy as a health care provider should be. The office is also really clean and modern, no tacky music or outdated artwork. My appointment was easy to book and I even look forward to going back and having him fix a badly chipped tooth. 5 stars for services and the staff I interacted with. Highly recommended!

Dr. Jensen is great. I was nervous to get an issue addressed. He took care of it quickly and the procedure was surprisingly pain free. I continue to see Dr. Jensen for his professionalism and his approach to dentistry that provides what is essential to his patients at a great price.

Dr. Jensen is such a kind dentist, he’s warm and welcoming and he truly cares about his patients. His staff goes above and beyond to make my family feel comfortable. He has also been really good with my 2 year old son, making him feel comfortable and getting him used to the dentist chair since he was 1. He loves going to see Dr. Jensen! The office is modern and you even have a nice view of the mountains while you’re getting your teeth cleaned! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!!
