Tooth Extractions in Ashburn VA

Tooth Extractions in  Ashburn VA

There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out as it should, and the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt.

At other times, a tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth at risk, so the doctor may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require wisdom teeth removal in Ashburn VA.

When it is determined that a tooth needs to be removed, Dr. Zia Rizvi may perform a tooth extraction in Ashburn, VA during a regular checkup or request another visit for this procedure. The root of each tooth is encased within your jawbone in a “tooth socket,” and your tooth is held in that socket by a ligament.

In order to extract a tooth, Dr. Rizvi must expand the socket and separate the tooth from the ligament holding it in place. While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share with us any concerns or preferences for sedation.

Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, we may recommend you replace the extracted tooth. Learn more about our dental fillings.

Why This is a Worry-Free Procedure

At Ashburn Dental Care, Dr. Rizvi ensures that all patient’s safety and well-being are priorities in this practice. To make sure that the procedure is done safely and with the least amount of obstacles as possible Dr. Rizvi takes an x-ray of the tooth, its roots, and the jawbone in either a bitewing x-ray or a panoramic x-ray. This ensures that all nerve ending as accounted for and any interaction with the sinus is avoided. These are important steps that ensure that the patient will heal as quickly as possible and also be in the least amount of pain. To help the patients have a painless extraction, Dr. Rizvi ensures that the anesthetic is working by asking the patient if they feel any pain throughout the procedure. If a patient is very resistant to the local anesthetic, laughing gas (nitrous oxide) is available at the patient’s request.
