Dentist in Sterling VA Tooth extractions are routine dental procedure done by a very experienced Sterling VA dentist at Bunin Dental. Tooth extractions are done to remove decayed, damaged or otherwise problematic teeth. Dentists usually make every effort to preserve natural teeth, although sometimes an extraction is necessary. Although the procedure is performed in a dentist’s or oral surgeon’s office, it is considered surgery. Depending on which teeth are removed, they may be replaced with a dental implant or another oral prosthetic.
