How We Can Alleviate Your TMJ Pain:

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards are an essential protective appliance for those with Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD). These specially designed guards not only protect teeth from impact injuries but also provide crucial cushioning to reduce trauma to the mouth, teeth, and jaw - areas particularly sensitive in TMJ/TMD patients.

Night Guards

For patients who experience bruxism, or teeth grinding, our team at Lowes Island Dentistry in Sterling, VA encourages you to be fitted for a night guard. Night guards, or bite guards, help to protect your teeth from crushing and grinding of teeth by providing a protective layer between your teeth.

Tooth Extractions

Request An Appointment

The tooth extraction process at Westover Dentistry is designed to be as comfortable and stress-free as possible. After a thorough examination and X-ray of your tooth, Dr. Sadeddin will use local anesthesia to numb the area. For a simple extraction, the tooth is loosened with an instrument called an elevator, and then removed with dental forceps. If the tooth is impacted or broken, a minor surgical procedure may be required. Post-procedure, you'll be given clear instructions on how to care for your mouth to ensure a smooth recovery.

How do I know if I need a tooth extraction?

If you're experiencing severe tooth pain, persistent dental infections, or overcrowding in your mouth, you might be a candidate for a tooth extraction. At Westover Dentistry, Dr. Hazim Sadeddin evaluates each case with a comprehensive examination, including X-rays, to determine if an extraction is necessary. Common reasons for tooth extractions include irreparable tooth damage due to decay, advanced periodontal disease, tooth infection, and preparation for orthodontic treatment. It's essential to consult with Dr. Sadeddin to discuss your symptoms and concerns, ensuring the best course of action for your oral health.

What can I expect during the recovery period after a tooth extraction?

Recovery after a tooth extraction typically takes a few days. At Westover Dentistry, we prioritize your comfort and healing, providing detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. Common recommendations include resting for at least 24 hours post-extraction, applying ice to the affected area to reduce swelling, avoiding rinsing or spitting forcefully for 24 hours, and eating soft foods. It's also important to avoid smoking and drinking through a straw, as these actions can hinder the healing process. Dr. Sadeddin and our team are always available to address any concerns or complications during your recovery.

Are there alternatives to tooth extraction?

At Westover Dentistry, we consider tooth extraction as a last resort when other restorative procedures are not viable. Alternatives to tooth extractions depend on the condition of the tooth and may include dental fillings, crowns, root canal treatment, or periodontal treatments for gum disease. Dr. Hazim Sadeddin will thoroughly assess your dental health and discuss all available options with you. Our goal is to preserve natural teeth whenever possible, focusing on treatments that can restore the tooth's function and aesthetic while maintaining overall oral health.
