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.

My appointment was at 7:00 AM and after arriving I learned that they now have the equipment on-site to produce same day crowns. Every step went as smooth as possible. My new crown was designed, fabricated, and placed in less than two hours. I highly recommend this service that Dr. Dickson offers."- D.T. / Google / Nov 28, 2021
