Tooth Extraction in Northern Virginia

Removal of non-restorable and infected teeth is accomplished by our oral surgeons in our offices in Annandale, Manassas, and Woodbridge. Surgical extractions, removal of bicuspids for orthodontic therapy as well as multiple extractions and preparation of the jaws for denture placement may be performed with local or intravenous sedation anesthesia. Treatment leading to the resolution of serious infections by surgical techniques or medication will accompany removal of teeth when indicated. On occasion, infected teeth can be salvaged by root canal therapy and related procedures. We will discuss this alternative with you when appropriate, and are prepared to provide such services as well.

What can be done when a tooth can’t be restored?

Talk with your dentist about your options. If the tooth needs to be extracted, he or she will advise you how to proceed. Following extraction, you will likely have several options — including the fabrication of removable dentures that rest on the gum line, the creation of fixed bridges using adjacent teeth as anchors, and dental implants, which are long-term replacements that your oral and maxillofacial surgeon surgically places in the jawbone.

How should I prepare for a tooth extraction visit?

Try to wear loose, comfortable clothing, with sleeves that you can easily roll up. If your doctor is recommending intravenous anesthesia, arrange to have someone accompany you to your appointment, drive you home afterwards, and remain with you until the anesthesia effects have worn off. In addition, you should not eat or drink for at least 6 hours prior to a procedure in which intravenous anesthesia will be used.

Can I drive home following a tooth extraction?

No. We advise that you arrange to have someone accompany you to your appointment, drive you home afterwards, and remain with you until the anesthesia effects have worn off.

How should I care for my tooth extraction?

After the extraction, we will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow, and in most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal. Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing. It is usually best not to smoke or rinse your mouth vigorously, or drink through a straw for 24 hours. These activities could dislodge the clot and delay healing. For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently. For pain or swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual but don’t clean the teeth next to the tooth socket.

So friendly, professional and most of all, very welcoming with the very first warm smile of the office team once I stepped in the clinic! I loved Dr. Julia Jackson’s sense of humor, relieving my nurviousness, not mentioning her and her team’s outstanding listening to patient’s needs, and thorough understanding and support.

Julia Jackson and her staff showed me great kindness. Had an emergency procedure that was taken care of the same day. Dr. Jackson personally called to check on me that same night. It’s comforting to know that there are still professionals that care about their patients. I highly recommend her if you’re in need of her services.

Everyone at this office was so nice and accommodating. I got sent here from the Manassas office. Dr. Jackson was very detailed in going over the procedure and what to expect. Overall a great experience (well as great as getting your wisdom teeth removed can be)

The service was very professional and the doctor was very attentive. The dental assistants made me feel very comfortable because I was very nervous. The wait time was short and the procedure was short as well. They talked me through all the steps before and after my wisdom teeth removal.

Aside from not remembering much when I got my wisdom teeth pulled (which I completely appreciate), my experience was fantastic. Everything was very quick and thorough. The staff was very professional and provided great customer service. I felt like they were taking care of me.
