Where Qualifications Count Most
Wisdom teeth typically begin to erupt during our late teens or early 20s. Also known as third molars, these teeth are often problematic and are prone to becoming impacted. Wisdom teeth may grow at odd angles that cause them to press against adjacent teeth, potentially causing misalignment, and can damage your jaw. They’re also difficult to clean, making them susceptible to decay. Wisdom teeth removal is a surgical procedure best performed by a specialist. If you need wisdom teeth extraction in Fairfax or Fredericksburg, VA, a highly trained and skilled surgeon is best qualified to perform it.

Warning Signs of Wisdom Teeth Issues
What Wisdom Tooth Extraction Is Like
Dr. Haron will assess your symptoms and determine if you need your wisdom teeth taken out using our 3D cone beam CT scanner, which enables him to see the condition of your teeth from every possible angle. When you return for surgery, and at every visit, we do everything possible to make you comfortable. That includes providing a stress-free environment and appropriate anesthesia options such as sleep dentistry.
Wisdom teeth extraction is a more complex procedure than a standard tooth extraction, and Dr. Haron may remove the teeth whole or in sections depending on their condition. Afterward, he’ll send you home with a set of important post-operative instructions for you to follow closely. Doing so can help you avoid painful complications such as dry socket and make for a quicker, smoother recovery.
