Tooth Extractions An Overview
While Dr. Sarkarzadeh will make every attempt to preserve as much of the natural smile as possible, tooth extractions are sometimes necessary to restore a patient’s optimal oral health. Tooth extractions may be used to prevent over crowding, remove a severely damaged or decayed tooth, or remove impacted wisdom teeth.
If a tooth extraction is necessary to restore a patient’s oral health, Dr. Sarkarzadeh works with Dr. Farzin to provide complete dental implant services. Dental implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth and provide patients with long term oral health benefits and long term bite stability.
Dr. Ali Sarkarzadeh is a highly trained and experienced dentist having served the Rockville, MD area for over 23 years. He provides comprehensive and personalized dental care for patients of all ages in our family friendly; patient focused dentist office.
Removing Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth removal is typically for patients in their late teens or early 20s when their third molars appear. The roots of the wisdom teeth continue to grow as the person ages making it harder for the dentist to remove them. This is why it has become common practice to extract them at this age when, also, recovery is much faster.
It is unlikely that this set of teeth will erupt into a functional position and usually cause more harm than good. Wisdom teeth are hard to reach when brushing and will most likely lead to decay or gum disease. For most young adults they need to be removed simply because they cause overcrowding. Wisdom teeth are the last molars to emerge and can often cause other teeth to shift. Impacted wisdom teeth are also removed to avoid bite complications later on.
Most patients will not experience any uncomfortable symptoms but removing wisdom teeth is necessary to avoid inevitable complications. There is a chance a patient may experience painful swelling, limited jaw movement, and pain while chewing. Impacted wisdom teeth can also cause a great deal of pain. Dr. Ali Sarkarzadeh routinely removes wisdom teeth, a procedure that can be performed from the comfort of our dentist office.

Tooth Extractions What to Expect
Tooth extractions are a routine dental procedure and can typically be performed in one visit to our Rockville, MD dentist office. Having a tooth removed is usually more comfortable than a patient anticipates and they experience little to no discomfort during their treatment. Some patients may even feel some relief if the tooth was infected before extraction.
After the tooth has been pulled, there will be a small hole in the socket where the bottom part of the tooth used to be. Our dental care team will make sure that all patients understand appropriate aftercare procedures to minimize swelling, discomfort, and excess bleeding. We recommend that you avoid smoking, vigorously rinse your mouth out, sucking on a straw, consuming alcohol and brushing your teeth at the extraction site until healed. Patients typically recover within a few days of treatment without complication. However, if you experience excessive bleeding or pain, be sure to contact our Rockville, MD dentist office right away.
