WE ARE OPEN FOR EMERGENCIES.
We want to help ensure the safety of our patients, staff, and families, and are following the mandates of the governor and the ADA regarding COVID-19. All appointments for elective procedures are canceled until further notice. If you or a loved one is in need of immediate emergency dental care, please call our office at (904) 783-0917.
Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 21, which are historically viewed as the “wisdom years”, though many parents may debate that belief. These teeth may have served our ancient ancestors, but today wisdom teeth can cause several problems, and there are many reasons to have them removed.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but if there are current issues or risk of future ones, it is best to have this procedure as soon as possible. Often all four teeth are removed at the same time to avoid the need for a second appointment.
If you are concerned about the wisdom teeth of you or your child, speak with Dr. Petrone or Dr. Proctor about the situation. They will review the dental x-rays, complete an exam and make a recommendation. If you have any other questions about oral health, dental procedures, preventative care and more, please contact us to schedule an appointment. Petrone Family Dentistry is your partner in maintaining your oral health, and is always here to help.
