Avoid Crowding With Wisdom Teeth Removal in Plano

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.
"Dr. Dickson and his staff are amazing. I want to recognize Lilly and Rachel for their professional assistance with my dental surgery yesterday."- J.W. / Google / Dec 10, 2020
"The staff and Dr. Dickson give impeccable service. They are honest and caring and make you feel comfortable. I'm frightened of the dentist's chair. I'm the woman that crys just for a chat in the chair. I don't think I'll be scared any longer, after a recent oral surgery there. I've got more treatment to go, but know they'll make me comfortable and ensure that pain doesn't have to be part of the dental experience."- M.B. / Google / Dec 10, 2020

"Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020, was the first time our 4 year old has been to the dentist. Dr. Dickson and his staff made her feel so comfortable and relaxed that she held her mouth open even when they weren’t cleaning her teeth. To top it off she has some cavities and she’s begging to go back so Dr. Darren can get her "cavity bugs". The icing on the cake was the way Dr. Darren explained what cavities are, how we get them, and most importantly how we can prevent them. Since coming home from the visit with Dr. Darren our sugar craving 4 year old has avoided the coveted fruity pebbles and has opted for fruit for the win! Many thanks to Dr. Dickson and his amazing staff!! Looking forward to seeing you soon to fix the "cavity bugs"! Our whole family (Mom, Dad, 11yo and 4yo) appreciate that we can all be seen together under one roof!"- R.M. / Yelp / Oct 23, 2020
