Our dentist, Dr. Ninh, is committed to doing everything possible to save your natural teeth. However, sometimes it becomes unavoidable, and we have to perform a dental extraction. There are various reasons why a tooth might need to be removed, including:
  • Excessive Tooth Decay: When decay has severely damaged the tooth beyond repair.
  • Severe Infection or Disease: Such as advanced periodontal disease or a severe tooth infection that cannot be treated effectively with other methods.
  • Major Cracks in Your Tooth: Extensive fractures that compromise the tooth structure and cannot be repaired.
  • Serious Damage to Your Teeth: From trauma or injury that has severely affected the tooth’s integrity.
  • Impacted or Overcrowded Teeth: Including wisdom teeth that do not have enough space to emerge properly, causing pain and potential alignment issues.
It's essential to be aware of the warning signs and symptoms that might indicate the need for a dental extraction. Look out for:
  • Loose Teeth: Indicating advanced gum disease or bone loss.
  • Intense Toothaches: Persistent pain that may signal severe infection or decay.
  • Stiff or Painful Jaws: Discomfort that could be related to impacted teeth or an abscess.
  • Swollen Gums: Inflammation that might be due to infection or gum disease.
  • Gums that Bleed Easily: A common symptom of periodontal disease.
  • Gum Disease: Signs include red, swollen, or tender gums.
  • Dental Abscesses: Pus-filled infections that can cause severe pain and swelling.
If you notice any of these symptoms, contact our dental office as soon as possible. Early detection and treatment can often save your natural smile and help avoid the need for tooth removal. By addressing the problem early, we may be able to treat the issue and preserve your tooth. Our team at Dental 32 Fresh Smiles is here to provide prompt and effective care to maintain your oral health.


Emergency Extraction

Only after our team has exhausted all other options to save your tooth will Dr. Ninh recommend a tooth removal. Our dentist will start by completing a comprehensive examination of the area. He will then design a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique situation, ensuring that you receive the best possible care for your specific needs. Dr. Ninh’s priority is to preserve your natural teeth whenever feasible, and extraction is considered only when absolutely necessary.

All our treatments are done with gentle care, and patients are thoroughly numbed before the procedure begins to ensure they stay comfortable throughout. The most you are likely to feel is some pressure as we work to remove a tooth. Before administering the local anesthetic, we will pre-numb the area with a topical anesthetic, which helps to make our shots as painless as possible! Depending on your individual case, Dr. Ninh may recommend either a simple tooth removal or a surgical tooth extraction.

Simple Dental Extractions

Simple tooth removals are often done the same day. After the surrounding area has been properly numbed, Dr. Ninh will use specialized dental instruments to loosen and remove the tooth. He will then sterilize and clean the area and cover the section where the tooth was removed with gauze to help ensure the surrounding gums heal properly and to prevent infections. This straightforward procedure is typically quick and effective, allowing you to return to your daily activities with minimal downtime.

Surgical Tooth Extractions

Surgical tooth extractions are a slightly more complicated procedure that may involve the removal of gum tissue, jawbone, or both. This option is used when the tooth cannot be easily accessed, if it hasn’t fully erupted, or if the tooth was broken below your gum line. While other practices may need to refer you to a specialist, Dr. Ninh, a trained oral surgeon, can perform your surgical tooth extraction right here at our office in Ashburn. This ensures continuity of care and the highest level of expertise for even the most complex extractions.

Post-Op Care

The healing process varies from person to person, but on average, patients can usually expect to be sore after a dental extraction for about three days. During this time, we ask that patients follow a list of post-op instructions and take the prescribed pain medications to help manage the discomfort during the recovery period. To ensure optimal healing, it is important to rest and allow your body the time it needs to recover. We usually recommend that patients take a few days off from work to recuperate fully. For those who need it, we are happy to provide work notes to facilitate this time off.

Some bleeding and swelling are normal following your tooth removal. It’s important to follow our care instructions closely to minimize these symptoms and promote faster healing. Applying an ice pack to the affected area can help reduce swelling, and maintaining gentle oral hygiene practices will keep the site clean. It can take several weeks to about a month for the extraction area to close up and fill with bone. During this period, avoid strenuous activities, and stick to soft foods to prevent irritation. By adhering to these guidelines, you can ensure a smoother recovery and a successful healing process.

Implant Dentist in Ashburn VAReplacing Your Tooth

After your tooth removal procedure, we generally recommend replacing your missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants provide a durable and natural-feeling solution for tooth replacement. The process involves placing a titanium dental implant in the area where your tooth was extracted. This titanium post acts as a new tooth root, integrating with your jawbone over time to create a stable foundation.

Once the implant has had time to heal and bond with the bone, a custom-made crown is placed over the implant. This crown is designed to match the shape, size, and color of your original tooth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance. Dental implants are currently the best option for tooth replacements, offering both aesthetic and functional benefits. They help maintain the integrity of your jawbone, prevent shifting of surrounding teeth, and restore your ability to chew and speak comfortably. By choosing dental implants, you can enjoy a long-lasting and natural-feeling solution to tooth loss.
