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.

Anyone who needs a dentist should go see Stubbs Dental. I went in with tooth pain and had to have teeth removed. I expected pain and discomfort, but that didn't happen. I was so surprised! And the whole experience in the office was so nice. The staff was so very kind, and they talked to me, not at me. While I was healing, the instructions were easy to follow. I've never had a better dental experience. Thank you, Layton Stubbs Dental.

The medical staff are very professional in their duties and explain what procedures will have to be taken. They take time to show the x-rays and answer any questions. I have recommended this office to my friends.

Wisdom Tooth Removal
Is More Common Than You Might Think...

What To Expect During the Procedure

After the surgery, our PRP treatments can help expedite recovery.

Day of Procedure

After the surgery, our PRP treatments can help expedite recovery.

X-Rays

We will begin by taking x-rays of your smile to plan the procedure. Our oral surgeon will give you detailed instructions for the day of the surgery. 

Anesthesia

When you arrive for extractions, we will first administer anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Dr. Stubbs is trained in intravenous (IV) sedation and can help you experience safe and substantial relaxation during your procedure.

Tooth Extraction

Your oral surgeon will make careful incisions in the gums to access the wisdom teeth. Depending on the patient, we may extract the tooth in one piece, or separate it into smaller pieces to minimize trauma to surrounding soft tissues. 

Close Incisions

Finally, we will close the incision with dissolvable sutures and pack the wound with gauze. 

Post-Op

After the procedure, you will be discharged to recover comfortably at home. You will need to arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home because the sedation will take awhile to wear off.

Don't Worry about Discomfort...

dental sedation

Our modern techniques and patient-focused care minimize any discomfort associated with wisdom tooth removal. Several of our dentists including Dr. Stubbs are qualified to administer sedation. After the surgery, our platelet-rich plasma treatments can expedite recovery and reduce the risk of complications.

Meanwhile, our offices in Bountiful, Layton, Murray, and Lehi, Utah, are full of luxury amenities to keep you comfortable and entertained throughout your visit. We strive to deliver a more positive experience at the dentist's office and go the extra mile to assist you in any way possible. 

"I Highly Recommend Stubbs Dental!"

"Hands down the best dental office I have ever been to. If you are normally uncomfortable going to the dentist, I highly recommend Stubbs Dental! They make the experience a LOT better!" Allison Green

Recovery

While some mild swelling and bruising is normal, most visible side effects will subside after a week. Get plenty of rest in the first 24 hours after your treatment. Meanwhile, make sure to carefully follow your post-op instructions to ensure a safe and timely recovery:

Bleeding and Swelling

You can expect some swelling and bleeding around the gums following your procedure. Avoid rinsing your mouth or brushing your teeth for at least 24 hours to allow blood clots to form around the extraction sites.

Pain Management

Most patients will experience some discomfort and soreness in the first few days, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Ice the area to reduce swelling and change the gauze according to the doctor's instructions.

Food and Drink

Eat soup, yogurt, and other very soft foods at first. You can resume eating soft solid foods a few days after the procedure as long as it doesn't cause you too much discomfort. Avoid drinking from a straw for a week or two, since this can dislodge the blood clots and interfere with your healing.

Activity

While every patient heals differently, many people can return to school or work a day or two following extractions. Your dentist will determine when it is safe to resume exercise and other strenuous activity.
