Wisdom Teeth Removal at Corner Canyon Family Dental in Draper, UT

Corner Canyon Family Dental offers wisdom teeth removal services in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to erupt and are known as third molars. In some cases, wisdom teeth do not erupt properly and can become impacted causing pain, infection, or crowding in the mouth. Our team of doctors has experience in wisdom teeth removal and can help ease pain, remove the infection, and allow more space for surrounding teeth in the mouth.

Do Wisdom Teeth Always Need to Be Removed?

Wisdom teeth erupt last and do not always need to be removed. As long as they are healthy, erupted properly, and do not cause issues with your bite or jaw, patients can leave them alone and care for them by brushing and flossing regularly. In other cases, patients may have impacted wisdom teeth, or wisdom teeth that partially erupt, or erupt and cause crowding.


Infection is common in wisdom teeth and this can cause pain and inflammation. For these complications, we always recommend wisdom teeth extraction. Wisdom teeth are typically all removed at once even if only a few of them are causing a problem. This is because we want to prevent future issues with your other wisdom teeth, and avoid a patient having to go through the extraction process again.


At Corner Canyon Family Dental, we only use the latest technology and ensure patients who require wisdom tooth extraction can relax pain-free and comfortably. We offer multiple sedation options and our doctors can help you choose an option that fits your needs. Patients can trust our team at Corner Canyon Family Dental for the very best dental care.

Does Getting Wisdom Teeth Pulled Hurt?

Corner Canyon Family Dental keeps patients comfortable and pain-free during wisdom teeth removal. We offer multiple sedation options and patients should feel no pain or discomfort at all during their surgery. After the removal is complete, patients may experience some sensitivity and the extraction area may be tender while you heal. Over-the-counter pain medications or antibiotics may be prescribed to help keep you comfortable and prevent infection. We use the latest technology and equipment to ensure your wisdom removal is a positive experience. Patients can rest assured they are in the very best hands and will be feeling better quickly after their procedure.


During our consultation process, our doctors will examine your wisdom teeth and discuss sedation options and recommendations. Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible, relieve pain, and get you back to feeling healthy again.

What Can I Expect During Wisdom Teeth Removal?

When you visit our office to have your wisdom teeth pulled, we will first begin with discussing sedation options to keep you comfortable. Corner Canyon Family Dental offers multiple sedation options to ensure you have a positive experience and successful surgery. IV sedation is a common method used for wisdom teeth removal. The anesthesia is administered via an IV in the arm, and you will feel relaxed and sleep during the procedure. Patients will have little memory of their surgery, and this method of sedation is safe and easily controlled by our doctors.


While you are comfortably sedated, our doctor will gently expose and remove your wisdom teeth. Depending on if the teeth are impacted or not will determine how deep the doctor has to go to ensure the tooth is removed properly. The extraction area is then cleaned out and stitches are used to close the extraction site. Wisdom teeth surgeries typically take between 45 minutes to an hour, and this depends on if the teeth are impacted and how many wisdom teeth require removal.

How Long Does It Take to Recover After Wisdom Teeth Removal?

The recovery process after wisdom teeth removal takes around 7 days. Patients will feel some sensitivity after their surgery, and we recommend using an ice pack to soothe the area and help with any swelling. Patients should not participate in any strenuous exercise, spitting, sucking, or use of tobacco products after surgery.


Some swelling and bleeding are normal, but if you experience prolonged pain or believe you have an infection, we encourage patients to call our office right away. Patients must schedule a follow-up visit to our office for our doctors to check to ensure the extraction sites have healed properly.
