SAFE DENTAL EXTRACTIONS FROM YOUR DENTIST NEAR FAIRFAX VA
While the main goal is to keep our natural smile for a lifetime, sometimes there are circumstances that are either beyond our control or get out of hand that may result in the necessity for a tooth extraction. Your smile is unique to you and we want to ensure that every patient has a healthy smile, no matter what. That’s why we here at Burke Parkway Dental are happy to serve as your Fairfax VA dentists and take care of your oral and dental health.
Here are some of the most common reasons that a tooth may need to get extracted:
Tooth decay: if tooth decay has advanced to periodontitis (gum disease), the infection and bacteria may have spread deep enough to affect the soft tissue and bone in the area, weakening the structure and causing your tooth to become loose and may fall out. If this is the case, it may be safer to have your tooth professionally extracted.
Orthodontic work can include dental extractions to create room for the teeth that are being shifted into their proper place. Wisdom teeth may become impacted in your late teens or early 20s, causing an extreme discomfort for the patient
