What Are Tooth Extractions?

While our dental team makes every effort to rescue and preserve your natural teeth, there are instances in which a tooth or teeth may have to be taken out. A simple extraction removes a tooth that's visible over the gumline. This is normally done for a tooth that's decayed or damaged beyond repair. A surgical extraction takes out a tooth that hasn't erupted above the gums. Surgical extractions are most commonly performed to take out wisdom teeth and impacted teeth that don't have enough space to fit into your mouth. Regardless of the reason for needing a tooth extraction at Contemporary Dentistry, our staff will give you the best treatment. Our dental practice provides multiple sedation techniques, such as nitrous oxide and oral-conscious sedation, and that means you can stay comfortable throughout your treatment. Contact our staff in Fairfax, VA or Manassas, VA for more information or to schedule an exam that will boost your smile.

What to Expect with Tooth Extractions

Extractions are performed in our office using local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth being worked on. Other types of sedation may be used based on the degree of the extraction and to help you stay relaxed if you have any dental anxieties. For a simple extraction, your dentist will loosen the tooth with a special device called an elevator prior to removal. A surgical extraction involves making incisions into your gums to reach the tooth. If necessary, the tooth could be broken up into smaller pieces so it can be taken out. Once the tooth is removed, we will stitch the incision in the gums. Our dental providers may prescribe antibiotics to be taken before and following the operation in case you have a current infection, if your immune system is compromised, if the process is prolonged, or if you have some other special health conditions.

UPDATE: January 2024. My 6th year with Dr. Morales. Had another cleaning. As usual, great experience. I don't have insurance, so I am happy they still honor Aetna's discount membership for real savings. Started to learn Spanish and I can practice it in real life...and for free! Hasta la proxima vez ! UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer. This is my second review for this excellent office. After neglecting my teeth for quite some time a broken toothed forced me to visit a dentist. After a research on the web and subsequent phone calls I settled for the Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas. One of the reason was that not having insurance the office accepts Aetna Savings Plans, basically a discount for the services. The discounts are real as I found out calling some other offices. My first visit was in January 2018. I have had numerous procedures done since then (altogether 30 - thirty - visits) ranging from deep cleaning, numerous cavities and including one implant and two crowns. All work was done in the office, the quality of work has been 100%+, I have never experienced nay 'post-procedure' pains or complications. The staff is very friendly and I am very happy I picked Contemporary dentistry for my dental needs. UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Morales and his practice for 18 years. The time period, alone, should be an indication of my family’s satisfaction.  Dr. Morales is wonderful...he invariably demonstrates serving his patients’ best interests and well-being in recommending and carrying out treatment. We have never had lingering issues in any treatment given.  We have successfully recommended him and his practice and will continue to do so. We never have a problem with scheduling appointments and the office staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The office, itself, is modern and comfortable.  If I could give 10 Stars, I would! P.S. Love our hygienist, Amy.

I’ve had a very positive experience with Contemporary Dentistry of Fairfax starting with my initial phone call to make my appointment, to the welcoming and professional office staff, and the talent and skill of the dentists. I currently see Dr Noumy but I trust that I would get the same care from the other dentists as well.

I travel from Florida for Dentist Diego Morales.  He is super careful and I don’t have any pain.  Excellent work in my mouth.  Dentist Diego Morales treats you like part of his family.  No waiting times when you have an appointment.  The receptionist and the staff very attentive.  I recommended 100%.

I have been a patient of Contemporary Dentistry (Dr. Morales) for many years and my experience with his practice has been very positive (especially considering I do not enjoy dental work). He has always made me aware of options for treatment. Over the years, he has always reassured me during instances where I may need a filling, root canal, crown and most recently a dental implant. The staff at Contemporary Dentistry, including hygienist Amy and office personnel are very professional and considerate. Dr. Abril did the implant procedure and his expertise and followup care was especially appreciated. My experience with this practice is such that I have not explored other options for my dental care and consistently see them for my regular checkups. If there are any concerns between regular visits, all I have to do is phone the office and an appointment is available very quickly. I am very happy with the service I have receive from Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas and recommend them without reservation.
