If you are suffering with tooth pain or have a damaged tooth and think you may need a tooth extraction, contact our dental office in Northern Virginia for a consultation with Dr. Quynh-Chi Nguyen. We perform most tooth extraction procedures in our office using relaxation dentistry techniques.

The first step is to call our office for a consultation. Dr. Nguyen will evaluate your condition and make recommendations for a full treatment plan. If you do need to see a specialist, Dr. Nguyen will make a referral and our office staff will help you to coordinate your appointments.

Root Canal vs. Tooth Extraction

When you have tooth pain, it may seem like the best treatment is to have the tooth pulled. In most cases, however, Dr. Nguyen will support the decision to preserve the natural tooth whenever possible. For teeth with decay, this can be accomplished with root canal treatment, and cracked or broken teeth can often be restored with a dental crown.

There are situations, however, where a tooth extraction is the best choice. In these cases, Dr. Nguyen will design a treatment plan to remove the tooth and replace it either with a dental implant, dental bridge or denture. It is important to replace missing teeth quickly to prevent supporting bone from deteriorating and remaining teeth from shifting.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Depending on your condition, Dr. Nguyen may perform your wisdom tooth extraction in her Chantilly, VA dentist office or refer you to a local oral surgeon for treatment. Contact our office at 703.483.9823 or schedule an appointment online.
