Root Canal

Overview: A Root Canal procedure is mostly needed when the layer of tooth, referred to as pulp, develops an infection. Tooth decay, injured teeth, and recurring infections are some of the causes of an injected tooth pulp. The patient usually has symptoms of pain/ discomfort that keeps you awake at night, lingering sensitivity to hot & cold, and swelling.

Procedure: The procedure itself may be performed when the pulp is infected, or if tooth decay is present. Basically, an opening is created at the top of the tooth providing a means for the infection to be removed. The surrounding area will be cleaned and sealed off. The doctor will put a crown on the tooth, which will protect the tooth from damage, and allow the patient to eat and drink with no pain or discomfort.

Antibiotics are usually prescribed to avoid infection after the procedure is completed. Follow up visits may be required to confirm the removal of the infection, and regular brushing and flossing are required as the tooth may be susceptible to decay. The Root Canal procedure is extremely effective procedure.

Patient Info: The team at Smile at Telfair will effectively explain the Root Canal Procedure. In addition, we will carefully explain the required post operation care. Again, we encourage all questions before and after the treatment. If any discomfort is felt after the procedure, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Hussain to discuss any concerns. Rest assured, your concerns will be immediately addressed.

Dr. Hussain and her team at Smile at Telfair were awesome. Went in with some tooth pain and walked out feeling good. Definitely will be returning to finish the remainder of my dental work. Thank you Smiles at Telfair.

Right from the beginning when I walked through the door, every fear that I ever thought I would have coming back to the dentist was dissipated by Dr. Insiya and her staff. They took wonderful care of all my fears. They explained every little thing that I would be going through. Clean office and great staff!

This team is a good group of people/ professionals. The staff is always very informative and we always end up having a good laugh. This is the type of relationship I expect from a neighborhood Dentist. I had brought my Mother who doesn't speak English. The Doctor was fluent in my Mother's language and it brought such comfort to her. And it was very comforting to me as well. Thank You Smiles at Telfair.
