Wisdom Teeth Removal

Most people will get their wisdom teeth in their late teens or early twenties. If they are correctly positioned they can be an asset, but without space in the mouth for them, they can become impacted and must be removed.

Fort Des Moines Dental uses the latest practices and materials to ensure wisdom teeth removal involves as little discomfort as possible.

Our Patients

“I frequently receive compliments on my teeth and smile. I owe it to the great people of Fort Des Moines Dental. I have been a patient of Fort Des Moines Dental all of my life. I’m 57 years old and currently on my third dentist. The dentist and staff have always been kind, courteous, friendly and professional. Thank you for many years of wonderful dental care.”

Nancy D.

“My children and I have been coming to Fort Des Moines Dental since 1994! What started out as a fun place to pick a toy out of the treasure chest for a good checkup became a great place for all our dental needs. Friendly staff, attentive hygienists and well-spoken dentists keep us coming back, twenty-three years and counting!”
