Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview
Tooth extractions are only used when they will benefit the oral health of patients. In some cases of advanced tooth decay, overcrowding or a severely damaged tooth, tooth extraction may help restore the health and function to the patient’s smile. Tooth extractions are avoided whenever possible opting for more conservative treatments such as root canals or an inlay or onlay.
Manassas Smiles is a family dentist serving the Centreville, VA area. We provide comprehensive dental services for patients of all ages. We focus on providing conservative dental care tailored to the unique needs of our patients.
Wisdom teeth commonly need to be removed once they begin to erupt. Wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding, causing teeth to shift and become misaligned. Dr. Hassan may recommend that the wisdom teeth are removed to avoid complications in that could arise in the future.
We offer sedation dentistry options for optimal comfort. Most patients are able t manage their discomfort with over the counter pain medications. Patients will receive post-treatment instructions for a quick and comfortable recovery.

Tooth Extractions What to Expect
A tooth extraction can typically be completed using a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. We also offer sedation dentistry including nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation for optimal relaxation during your tooth extraction. Dr. Hassan will discuss dental sedation options with you before treatment.
If the extracted tooth requires replacement, Dr. Hassan provides full-service dental implants. Dental implants are the most natural and aesthetic option for replacing a missing tooth. Implants support long-term oral health and stability.
Personalized post-procedure recommendations will be provided to ensure your recovery goes well. Most patients recover fully after a few days. If you experience severe pain or significant bleeding, call our office immediately.
