Tooth Removal & Extraction Washington, DC
Wisdom teeth removal is one of the most commonly performed tooth removal procedures. Wisdom teeth are the final teeth in the mouth to emerge and are a third set of molars located in the back of the upper and lower jaws. The emergence of wisdom teeth typically occurs during the late teenage years or early 20s. Wisdom teeth that are partially or fully stuck under the gumline are considered to be impacted, which can lead to painful symptoms or infection. Wisdom teeth are also removed because they often lead to overcrowding, can damage nearby teeth, may cause nerve damage, and may lead to the development of oral cysts. Wisdom teeth extraction is generally recommended early in order to prevent the onset of any of these uncomfortable symptoms or conditions.
Another form of tooth removal, which is known as general tooth extraction, is a procedure designed to remove damaged, unhealthy, or broken teeth. Tooth removal surgery is also often used to correct overcrowding if a patient has too many teeth. Tooth extraction can help correct a misaligned or crooked smile by removing problematic teeth. If a patient is experiencing tooth decay or an infection of the tooth, removal of the tooth may be necessary if it cannot be treated using other methods. In some cases, a patient may require tooth removal before braces or dental implants can be placed. Learn more about wisdom teeth removal and tooth extraction by clicking the buttons below.

Sedation dentistry uses various forms of anesthesia to ensure patient comfort while undergoing an oral treatment or oral surgery. Some of the most common forms of anesthesia used at our practice are nitrous oxide, IV sedation, local anesthesia, and general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia used during your procedure will depend on the type of surgery you are undergoing, your general health, and medical background. While anesthesia is used to ensure patient comfort, it may also be useful for patients with a fear or anxiety towards dentists or for patients who are unable to comfortably sit still for long periods of time.
Nitrous oxide, which is often referred to as laughing gas, is administered through a nose mask and allows the patient to remain conscious but in an incredibly relaxed state where they cannot feel pain. IV sedation is also referred to as twilight anesthesia and causes the patient to be fully unaware of the procedure. An example of local anesthesia is Novocain. These types of anesthesia are only applied to a local area and limits the range of effect. This is helpful when only a small portion of the mouth needs to be numbed for a procedure to be performed. Finally, general anesthesia puts the patient fully to sleep for more advanced surgical procedures. We can discuss the various differences between each anesthesia and decide which is best for your particular procedure. Click the below button to learn more about sedation dentistry.
