Removing third molars and preventing problems

One of the most common surgical extractions performed by Dr. John A. Marino is wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, can cause a number of serious problems for your oral health if not extracted. We invite you to contact us at 703-485-4534 to learn more about how you can benefit from wisdom teeth removal in Annandale, Virginia, and to set up your appointment with our dentist.

Wisdom teeth are typically the last teeth to erupt. By the time they begin to emerge, there is not enough space in the mouth to accommodate them, leading to a condition known as impaction. An impacted tooth simply means that the tooth is stuck and cannot erupt properly. When your wisdom teeth are impacted, it may lead to a number of problems, including:

  • Overcrowding
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection and inflammation
  • The formation of cysts
  • Damage to the jawbone and neighboring teeth
  • Difficulty maintaining good oral hygiene

When you come to our office for your wisdom teeth removal procedure, Dr. Marino and our team will make sure that you are comfortable throughout your time in our office. We will also provide you with detailed post-op instructions so that you can heal properly.
