Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the third molars in the very back of your mouth. They don’t always need to be removed, but they can cause problems if they are not growing in properly. We provide advanced state-of-the-art oral surgery and wisdom teeth removal.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Grand Junction, CO

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars. They come in anywhere between the ages of 17 to 25 and are known to cause issues with many patients’ oral health. We can visually examine your wisdom teeth (if they have already erupted) or use X-ray imaging to assess if your wisdom teeth need to be removed.

We typically schedule 2 hours for the procedure. But the first 45 minutes you’re just relaxing, watching a show and allowing the medications to work.

Sedation Dentistry at Bookcliff Family Dental

We cannot put you to sleep at Bookcliff Family Dental, however, we do offer minimal sedation. For most people minimal sedation allows you to not remember the procedure at all. Some people do remember bits of the procedure.

Before scheduling minimal sedation appointments, a consultation is essential to verify medical history and review policies and procedures. Additionally, having a driver accompany patients to and from minimal sedation appointments is mandatory for their safety, making it advantageous for them to attend the consultation as well.
