Wisdom Teeth Removal
Third molars – or wisdom teeth – are the last set of permanent adult teeth to erupt, usually in your late teens or early 20s.
If they erupt abnormally, or become impacted in the jawbone, they can cause pain, swelling, and other oral health issues.
Dr. Ryan K. Austin performs wisdom teeth removal at our Ogden, UT, oral and maxillofacial surgery practice in the utmost comfort...

"I Would Recommend Going to Him for Wisdom Teeth Removal!" Read Our 5-Star Reviews
I had a really good experience getting my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Austin. I was anxious going in there, but him and the staff made me feel comfortable. He also called me afterwards to check in on how I was doing. I would recommend going to him for wisdom teeth removal!View On Google
Easy upper wisdom tooth removal, both sides. Procedure took under 20 minutes after anesthesia kicked in, felt like i blinked and left without the groggy feeling. Hours after the surgery i get a call from Dr. Austin himself as he's driving somewhere after business hours to make sure im doing well. I have terrible anxiety with dental work, and this was almost a fun experience. Will be recommending this professional to every single person i know.View On Google

Should Wisdom Teeth be Replaced?
Some of our patients ask if they should replace their wisdom teeth with dental implants. Unlike other teeth in the mouth, wisdom teeth do not need to be replaced. Your oral function will not be compromised by the absence of third molars, so once you have healed following extraction, you need only take the best possible care of your remaining teeth.
However, when it comes to any other teeth that are lost or extracted, Dr. Austin suggests replacing them. Gaps and spaces can lead to shifting, which can result in an unbalanced bite over time. If you are missing teeth due to decay, gum disease, or other issues, ask your dentist how dental implants and other treatments can restore your smile. We welcome patients from throughout Brigham City and surrounding communities.
