Tooth Extraction An Overview

Tooth extractions are commonly used to restore a patient’s oral health after suffering from severe tooth decay, damage or overcrowding. While Dr. Ahrabi will always attempt to preserve as much of the natural smile as possible, tooth extractions are sometimes necessary to stabilize the oral foundation. Dental fillings and root canals may be able to preserve a damaged or decayed tooth if treated early.

If a tooth extraction is necessary, Dr. Ahrabi offers full-service dental implant treatment plans in house. Dr. Ahrabi is a highly trained implant dentist and offers a range implant procedure. A dental implant acts as a prosthetic tooth and supports long term oral health as well as stabilizes the bite and jaw bone.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is a treatment performed in the late teens or early 20s. As the wisdom teeth begin to emerge, many young adults will need them removed to prevent overcrowding. Impacted wisdom teeth are also removed to avoid bite complications later on.

Tooth Extraction What to Expect

Tooth extractions are, in most cases, generally a pain-free dental procedure. The extraction can typically be performed in one visit to our Oakton, VA dentist office. We offer NuCalm as a non-medicinal way to help patients feel completely calm and relaxed during treatment. Other sedation methods may be made available upon discussion with Dr. Ahrabi.

Our dental care team will make sure that all patients understand appropriate aftercare procedures to minimize swelling and discomfort. Patients recover without complication, however, if you experience excessive bleeding or pain, be sure to contact our Oakton, ON dentist office right away.
