Dr. Tamir Anver, DDS, MD, and Dr. Aaron Vickers, DDS, MD, don’t mince words about why they believe they are the right choice for your child’s wisdom teeth removal. Their passion for safety, service, and quality patient care is obvious every time you speak with them. And it is precisely why they are confident that Texas Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants is home to two of the most qualified oral surgeons in Flower Mound.
But honestly, there’s no need to take their word for it. The proof is in the thousands of children safely taken care of by these doctors in the greater Flower Mound community.
As you probably know, wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to develop. Occasionally they grow in uneventfully. But even if you can’t see them, or they’re not bothering you, they very often lead to pain, cavities, infections, gum disease, cysts, or damage to nearby teeth. They also grow close to high-risk structures like nerves and sinuses, which is why it’s important to trust an oral surgeon with surgical experience in the face, jaw, and mouth to perform these procedures as safely as possible. The risks for complications related to wisdom teeth and their removal generally increase with age, so the ideal time for an evaluation is between 15-25 years old.
“If you want your child to have the best experience, the right way to have their wisdom teeth removed is by us,” Dr. Anver said. “We know families have options, but at the end of the day, this is a private practice run by two local guys who want to serve their community and ensure these procedures are done safely and seamlessly. If we didn’t genuinely believe that, we wouldn’t have gone to school for
27 years each.”
Under the guidance of Dr. Anver and Dr. Vickers, Texas Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants is the trusted choice for all oral surgery. They are both dual-degreed, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons. This means they each uniquely have a dental degree, medical degree, and general anesthesia permit by the state of Texas.
Dr. Vickers earned his college degree at the University of Tennessee, then graduated from dental school at UNC-Chapel Hill. He furthered his training with a six-year oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the University of Louisville, during which time he obtained his medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine. Similarly, Dr. Anver attended Austin College in Sherman for his undergraduate education. He then earned his dental degree at the UT School of Dentistry in Houston before completing his residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he also obtained his MD.
They both own the practice and live in Flower Mound. Dr. Vickers lives in Wellington with his wife and four children, and Dr. Anver lives in Bridlewood with his wife and two children. Their signature services include dental implants, anesthesia, full-mouth reconstruction, and, of course, wisdom teeth removal. They listen to you and educate you on all your treatment options, and they’ve invested in technology that makes your child’s experience faster, less invasive, and more effective. Dr. Anver and Dr. Vickers are aware that families have options. With that said, here are questions to ask before having your child’s wisdom teeth removed:
- Is the person doing it board-certified in oral and maxillofacial surgery?
- Do they have a medical license and general anesthesia permit?
- Have they managed anesthesia and surgical complications?
- Is it being done in the surgeon’s office for the highest level of comfort and safety?
- Will the surgeon directly follow up or manage complications if they arise?
“When you contact our office, we’ll work with your dentist to get your information to make your experience as streamlined as possible,” Dr. Anver added. “Many folks qualify for Same Day Wisdom Teeth where the consultation and surgery can be performed on the same
day for added convenience.”
