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 had all 4 wisdom teeth removed yesterday by Dr. Zadeh. I was very nervous because this was my first surgery ever. All of the staff was was great and explained every step including the sedation process and aftercare instructions. Before I took any medication, my pain was a 3/4 out of 10. This was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this practice.

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!

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person. I had a lower canine that had been root-canaled some time ago and ended up having a painful infection. He took out my infected tooth like he pulled out a needle from a butter, not feeling any pain at all. He then placed an imediate implant. He is very efficient in using his time and…

My son recently got his wisdom teeth extracted. Dr. Zaheh made my son feel very comfortable and relaxed. The procedure did not last long at all which led to a quick recovery. My son had absolutely no swelling which was unbelievable! He hardly experienced any pain either. He went out with friends a few days later and will recommend others to Dr. Zadeh!

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…

I’m afraid of all doctors but this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Everyone was extremely nice, with a warm inviting atmosphere. Their manager, Kelly was patient with all of my questions and helped me without hesitation. If I hear of someone needing surgery, this is who I’d recommend.
