Wisdom Teeth Removal Elk Grove, CA

Wisdom Teeth Removal

The last and largest of your molars to arrive, the wisdom teeth, can cause problems for some people. When there is limited space for them to erupt or they grow incorrectly, they may need removal to protect your oral health. As part of our general dentistry options, Laguna West Dental Care in Elk Grove offers efficient wisdom teeth removal when needed for teens and adults.

There are four wisdom teeth that usually arrive in the late teens or early twenties. Some people have no difficulties with their wisdom teeth and do not need to consider removal. For others, these last molars can cause pain, tooth misalignment, infections and other oral health issues. These large molars can be impacted in the gums, refusing to erupt in the correct position, or they may not erupt at all. When this occurs, removal is the best option to protect the rest of the teeth and prevent other health issues.

Stress-Free Molar Extractions

The best way to prevent wisdom tooth problems is to closely monitor their growth. Our dentist can monitor the progression of wisdom teeth during routine dental exams to determine if they could present a problem. If they begin to grow sideways, press against other teeth or are impacted in the gums, proactive removal can prevent further issues. We use advanced dental technology and methods to ensure stress-free removal of these last molars, including safe anesthesia and sedation options for the procedure.

When wisdom teeth are causing pain or dental problems, removal can be the correct solution. If you or your child needs wisdom teeth removed, contact Laguna West Dental Care to schedule an exam and consultation. Our dentist will go over the options available for removal and anesthesia to ensure the procedure goes smoothly, with as little discomfort as possible. We accept many dental plans that can help cover your costs. Call to find out if we take your dental insurance.

Suzanne B.

As I was walking to my car after my appointment I thought, I sure am happy I come here. I get warm friendly service and gentle, thorough care throughout my visit. Dr. Chan and his staff are the best.

Jennifer B.

We've been so very happy with Dr. You and his staff since we moved to Sacramento in 1985! We've followed him to the current location in Laguna...he and his staff take such good care of all our dental needs. I have no hesitation in recommending their services!

Stephanie O.

In my 65 years on the planet, and hundreds of hours in former dentists' offices, Dr. You and his staff are by far the best I've ever encountered. My very recent crown replacement was 100 percent pain free! All phases of treatment, from removal of the old crown, mold taking and making, to the permanent placement with my brand new well-matched molar, was seamless. I respect and applaud Laguna West Dental Care for taking such talented care of me.

Janet S.

Since retiring, I drive and hour and a half each way to continue to see Dr. You and his entire staff ... and I hate to drive. No better dentist and hygenists in Sacramento and I have tried others over the years. Thank you for a great experience each and every time Laguna West!

Norman H.

In my 50+ years, I've probably had 7 to 8 dentists and have had my share of bad experiences that made me fearful of going to the dentist. But, after switching to Dr. Chan in 1991, I really couldn't be happier and don't dread dental appointments anymore. Dr. Chan is gentle and exceptionally good at giving shots that I can barely feel. He even calls me in the evening after every procedure to make sure I'm doing okay. The staff is friendly and caring and the facilities are nice. Highly recommended.

Carol D.

We've been patients of Dr. You and Dr. Chan since my son was in kindergarten - now a County employee. Everyone on the staff is great. I had one bad experience with a dentist referred by my insurance co. - I'd NEVER see a dentist again without a personal referral. Consider this mine to you -- Laguna West is an excellent choice!
