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.

How Impacted Wisdom Teeth Affect Your Health

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause discomfort, an increased risk of tooth decay, and can even affect tooth alignment. Our Utah Valley oral surgery center can remove impacted wisdom teeth before they become a problem, protecting your long-term oral health in the process.

Our Patients Love Our Work

Sedation Dentistry 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.

A Focus on Your Comfort and Wellness

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.


"No Anxiety or Stress" Five-Star Patient Reviews

If I could go on and on about Dr. R I would. He is a wonderful surgeon and a wonderful person. When we met in October of 2019 I was struggling with sleep apnea. My jaw was misaligned, my bite did not match, I snored, stoped breathing in my sleep, all because my jaws were recessed. Dr. R. Changed my airway from 3 mm to 10 mm. I don’t take breathing for granted now. Every time I breathe in I feel the cold air hit the back of my throat and I am so thankful I went through with the surgery. I have so much more energy. Not to mention he did a beautiful job on the surgery. My teeth fit perfect together and I am so much more confident with my smile. He has magic hands!!! Best surgeon ever!!!

Dr. Rasmussen and his entire staff are amazing!! Laid out a clear treatment plan, the extraction appointment was so easy! I loved the clear post extraction instructions. From working with his billing department to the nurses and the doctor everyone was great! I knew exactly what to expect going into the appointment and post appointment. There was no anxiety or stress associated with the extraction. I would highly recommend Dr. Rasmussen to anyone needing any oral surgery!
