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.

I highly recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone reading t…

I have been a patient for many years. Whenever I have needed a tooth removed I have gone to them. My experience has been pain free during the procedure and very little pain or swelling after. I would highly recommend the doctors at Northern Virginia Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates.

I had an abscess beneath my right back molar. The pain was unbearable. I was referred by a friend to NOVA Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates by a friend. I couldn’t have been happier about my treatment, procedure and outcome. I am now pain-free. I was very impressed with the staff and service. In fact, I am about to schedule another appointment with them to install an implant for t…

Despite all my nerves, my experience was really great! The staff was very helpful and patient with me and they were easy to talk to. I had minimal pain and discomfort during and after my wisdom teeth extraction. I healed surprisingly fast after the procedure, too! I would absolutely recommend to a friend or to someone who is looking for an oral surgeon!

Well first off I have a fear of Dentistry. But the staff at Northern Virginia oral maxillofacial surgery put that completely at ease. This was the first and only time that I had dental work done without any fear or any pain. The front end staff is top notch..(Wendy & Gloria)..every question from procedures to payment was handled extremely well….I cant thank everyone enough..

Excellent service at a reasonable price. I had to have surgery right away, and they got me inside, got the surgery for much less than I expected to be charged and had an issue later when I got home. The Doctor called me herself, and followed up with me two more times to make sure everything was okay. There was very little pain and the swelling went down when they said it would, I highly recommend…
