Wisdom Teeth Removal
Medford Oregon Family Dentist

1117 E. Main Street, Ste 1
For some patients, wisdom teeth can fit comfortably in the mouth and not require extraction. However, for most people, these third molars can cause discomfort, pain, and long term complications if left alone. Even when wisdom teeth have adequate space, their position far back in the mouth makes keeping them clean quite difficult. For this reason, Dr. Joshua Rice and his team offer wisdom teeth removal with IV sedation in Medford, Oregon. To visit with our dentist for a wisdom teeth removal consultation, call 541-779-6401 and speak with a team member at Cascade Dental.
The third molars, which are commonly called the wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to come in. Because they are the last to erupt, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone) or grow in at an incorrect angle. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:
- Disturbance of the natural tooth alignment or orthodontic treatment
- Damage to the neighboring teeth
- Tooth decay
- Infection and inflammation in the gums and other tissues
- The formation of cysts
- Damage to the jawbone
Our dentist may recommend wisdom teeth removal to avoid these serious complications and to keep your smile healthy. We will carefully evaluate your smile, including the positioning of your teeth and wisdom teeth, to determine whether your smile would benefit from wisdom teeth removal. Our team will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal treatment is as painless and comfortable as possible. To learn more about wisdom teeth removal, please call or visit us today. We are committed to keeping your smile in the best possible health.

Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are scary and inconvenient. Dr. Rice is trained in extractions, root canal treatments, and other emergency dental techniques.
Super staff and Dr. Rice did an amazing job! I've been slowly losing teeth for years now and feel like a new person with my new partials. Thank you so much!

I highly recommend Joshua Rice. I had a dental emergency. I cracked a molar while eating dinner. The next morning I looked for a dentist. They were able to fit me in within a couple of hours. Everyone in the office is really nice. Dr Joshua Rice was great. He took care of my emergency, quickly and he was gentle.

I hadn't been to the dentist in a while and was nervous to go. Dr. Rice and his staff was calming, kind and attentive. They didn't gouge me for a dental plan, and I was very happy with the service I received. They gave me a dental plan I understood, were informative, and I'm happy I found my dentist! Very satisfied!

Best Dental office ever. The people are so nice. I actually look forward to my routine cleanings just to see the staff. I have been a client for several years and have never been treated bad.

Friendly, quick, and (never thought I would say this about going to the dentist), but very enjoyable! It was a pleasant surprise watching the NFL network while getting my teeth cleaned. Dr. Rice has a great bedside manner.
