Important COVID-19 Update

As the status of COVID-19 and corresponding recommendations change frequently, we are doing our best to keep up and adjust our policies as quickly as possible.

Your health and the health of our staff are our top priority, and that is why we are STILL OPEN, but have implemented some new procedures to limit the number of patients coming in at any given time, screen everybody coming into the office, increase sterilization above recommended standards, and comply with the most recent recommendations from the ADA and CDC.

Our office follows strict cleaning and sterilization protocols for the protection of our patients. In addition to the continued use of hospital grade sterilization equipment in our office, we clean all contact surfaces between each appointment. We use disinfectants across the office, including frequent sanitation of the front office and patient waiting area. Our employees maintain personal hygiene as well as wearing surgical masks and washing their hands and changing their gloves between each patient.

Providing Safe, Effective Wisdom Tooth Removal

Cavities and teeth cleanings are one thing, but oral surgery is another. Parents want to make sure their kids get the best, most expert care when it comes to wisdom tooth removal. This is what you’ll find with Stubbs Dental as our doctors have extensive training and experience in wisdom tooth removal at his Bountiful, UT, and Layton, UT, dental practices.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need Removing?

Three women having coffee at a table.Many different things need to happen for an individual to be okay without having his or her wisdom teeth removed. Pain, infection, distortion and more are all complications that can occur in wisdom teeth over time. Wisdom tooth removal is a preventative procedure in most cases, helping a young person stay out of future dental trouble.

Impaction

A common problem with wisdom teeth is that they become impacted, meaning that they don’t fully grow in. Sometimes wisdom teeth have trouble breaking through the gums, or sometimes they partially emerge. This can lead to infection, as there are spaces between the gum and the teeth.

Alignment

Sometimes our third molars (wisdom teeth) don’t grow in straight. They come in pointed in an angle, or twisted. This means that other teeth in the mouth are influenced, which can disturb alignment and lead for needed dental work later on.

What If There Isn’t Any Pain?

This is a common question many parents and teens at our practice have. After all, who wants an unnecessary surgery? The truth is that because issues with wisdom teeth are common, having them removed in the teenage years is generally accepted as the safest practice. Furthermore, wisdom teeth are a vital part of your mouth.

Waiting until you feel pain can lead to the need for additional treatment and other problems with your teeth. Serious infection can occur, or the need for teeth straightening.
