I am one of those people who are afraid of dentists and along with all the work that I need done on my mouth.. it's hard for me to even SHOW UP at the appointments.. That being said these guys and gals are AMAZING at what they do, they made me comfortable and safe. They kept me informed and were extremely friendly. So for me, a potentially difficult customer with extreme discomfort with any dental related concern, tells you thes people are amazing. ITS THE TRUTH highly recommend them any time I can :)

I went here after struggling with Jaw pain/chronic infections almost a year after my wisdom teeth removal (from another dentist office). Dr.Burton was kind,attentive, and supportive throughout our entire process. I highly recommend going to him for wisdom teeth removal and/or any other oral related issues. He made it a point at the 1st appointment to let me know that we were in this together and I appreciate his candor and compassion. The staff and everyone else here are amazing attentive. I highly recommend this office.

Featured Oral Surgery Services  Wisdom Teeth Extraction

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars that erupt in the back of the mouth during the teen years or early adulthood. These teeth are not necessary for normal biting and chewing, and they could lead to dental health problems.

Why Wisdom Teeth Are Removed

For most people, there is not enough room in the jaw to accommodate the wisdom teeth, so they become impacted. If your dentist has determined that it's time to remove your wisdom teeth, the team at Utah Valley Oral Surgery can help.

"I recently saw Dr. Rasmussen for my wisdom teeth removal and it was honestly the best experience. I have extreme dental anxiety and their office was wonderful and helped calm my fears. My lower teeth were very much involved with the nerve and I knew there were risks involved. Dr. Rasmussen is a miracle worker and I’ve had no nerve damage at all... I can’t say enough good things about them!" Rebecca Stevenson

We want every patient to feel welcome and safe. Our staff is friendly and always ready to address any concerns you may have about treatment. In addition to offering dental sedation methods, our maxillofacial surgeons will discuss all aspects of your oral surgery in detail. Patient education and open communication will reduce anxiety while enhancing your experience.

Sedation Dentistry Is Available We Are Committed to Stress-Free Visits

Oral surgery makes many patients nervous. Our Orem and Saratoga Springs, UT, offices provide anesthesia and sedation options to make the procedures as comfortable as possible.

Many people struggle with dental anxiety and dental phobia. This can cause panic attacks while visiting the dentist for cleanings or while seeing a specialist for advanced maxillofacial care. Sedation dentistry methods ensure the safety and health of the patient during the treatment process.

A variety of sedation options are made available depending on the needs of the patient and their level of dental anxiety. The methods that we offer include nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, intravenous (IV) sedation, and general anesthesia. We can recommend the right sedation option for you.

I had my wisdom teeth removed here a couple weeks ago, and I couldn’t have had a better experience. I was so incredibly nervous as this is the first surgical procedure I’ve ever had done, and dr Rasmussen and his team made me feel at ease and they did an amazing job. I followed all the after care instructions and recovered quickly with no dry socket or any complications at all! My mouth is healing up nicely and the pain was not as bad as I was expecting. Also, they were very upfront and honest about the cost and I paid exactly what they quoted me, which was extremely reasonable and way less than I expected. I am so happy with my experience here and couldn’t recommend it enough!!!

We got referred to Dr. Burton by our orthodontist to get all 4 wisdom teeth out! The staff is super friendly and helpful - they make you feel right at home! We had a consultation (Orem) and had the actual surgery the next day in Saratoga Springs. We couldn’t have asked for a better first time experience! Dr. Burton explained everything thoroughly in the consult. The next day (surgery day) he was on time, personable, and made us feel right at home. The surgery normally takes about 30 minutes but Dr. Burton, being efficient as he is, only took 20 minutes! He even called in the prescription meds before the surgery started, so by the time we arrived at the pharmacy, it was ready for pick up. For a surgery, it was a remarkable first time experience - HIGHLY recommend!
