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.

$99 Emergency New Patient Exam and X-Ray

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.

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!

Adam is such a knowledgeable and personable guy! He takes the time to explain things and answer questions. He has integrity and doesn’t over treat. Having a dentist you can trust is crucial! He has a friendly and welcoming staff. Overall an excellent experience. Even gave me a nice hot towel at the end – such a treat! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!

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!

Jeffrey Cincoski

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!

Najeeby Quinn

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!

Jeff Conaway

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.

Tarryn Meyer

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!!
