At Tysons Dentistry, Dr. Ardalan Sanati and Dr. Shohreh Shahram work hard to treat oral health issues and save your tooth if possible. Still, there are times when a dental extraction is necessary to save your other teeth.
For example, if a tooth is broken and fractured beyond repair, it should be extracted to avoid infection or decay.
How Will You Know If Your Tooth Needs to Be Extracted?
In many cases, the first symptom you may notice is excruciating pain in your tooth. If you struggle to do your daily work and run errands because of consistent throbbing and shooting pains, you should call your Vienna, VA dentist immediately. We can help manage your pain and provide relief the minute you walk through our doors.

We can treat your discomfort right away and let you take a breath of relief. After you are back to feeling human, our dentists will be able to examine you and determine the best course of action.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, you may need a dental extraction:
