Avoid Crowding & Other Dental Problems With Wisdom Teeth Removal in Plano
Crowding, impaction, or poor position can all cause problems with wisdom teeth, making you more prone to decay, infection, and other damage. As if all that wasn’t bad enough, wisdom teeth can hurt! To get you out of pain and prevent other issues from occurring, Dr. Dickson may recommend wisdom tooth removal in Plano, TX.
Our 3-D CT scan gives Dr. Dickson a good look at your teeth and all the underlying bone, tissue, and nerve pathways. He’ll be able to see any potential complications before any oral surgery. If needed, he’ll have a specialist come to our office to perform your wisdom teeth extraction. This ensures you have a very comfortable, very predictable experience.
Whether your procedure is performed by Dr. Dickson or a specialist, you’ll appreciate:
- A choice of four kinds of sedation, including full general anesthesia.
- Massage chairs and other comfort amenities.
- Extended hours, including Saturday appointments, so you can minimize downtime following your procedure.
To see if you need to get your wisdom teeth removed, call 972-737-7039.
Don’t Put Off Wisdom Teeth Extraction
To minimize complications, the American Dental Association recommends removing wisdom teeth before age 20. That’s one of the reasons you shouldn’t let your teenager skip dental exams! During these visits, Dr. Dickson will monitor the development of wisdom teeth, which usually come in between ages 17 and 21. If he recommends removal, it’s best not to wait too long. Early removal is easier because roots aren’t as embedded in the jaw as they will be when you are older. Plus, younger patients heal more quickly.
Wisdom teeth extraction:
- Eliminates pain caused by wisdom teeth.
- Helps keep nearby teeth in alignment.
- Makes it easier to keep teeth clean.
Don’t Ignore Pain or Other Symptoms
A proactive exam is best to determine if wisdom teeth need to be removed. Call us ASAP, though, if your teenager is experiencing pain and/or any of these symptoms:
- Tender or swollen gums
- An unpleasant taste in the mouth
- Pain around the jaw
- Chronic bad breath
