Wisdom Teeth: Information for Parents and Teens

As a parent or a teen, you probably have many questions about wisdom teeth. We know that this can be an intimidating process for many families, but we are here to make you feel at ease by answering all of your questions and coming up with a plan that makes you comfortable. If your son or daughter is 16 years old, it’s time for a wisdom teeth evaluation in our office. Please call Houston Office Phone Number (713) 784-4200 to schedule an appointment with our friendly staff.

Excellence in Dental Implant Care

As oral surgeons, we complete 4-6 years of specialty training beyond dental school, giving us an unsurpassed level of expertise with dental implant planning, surgery, and general anesthesia. This experience translates to exceptional dental implant experiences for our patients.

At Memorial Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, all surgical cases requiring in-office sedation are monitored with the same equipment found in a hospital operating room. The offices have been reviewed and are in compliance with the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Emergency procedures are continually reviewed with the surgeons and the staff.
