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.

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.

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.

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.
