Tooth extraction

Overview: Dental extractions occur as a last resort for dental issues, used only upon the exhaustion of other options. Some of the reasons why extractions occur are because of tooth decay, injured teeth, and infection. In addition, the procedure is also used to provide room for growing teeth and to address any gum erosion or orthodontic concerns. Of course, each extraction is unique to the patient, and based on the severity of the problem.

Procedure: Extractions are separated into two categories, Simple and Surgical. A simple way of putting it that simple extractions are more like when teeth are loose (like during childhood) and the doctor can help wiggle it out. The Surgical extractions are more challenging, and a good example is when the wisdom teeth are taken out.

Patient Info: The team at Smile at Telfair will effectively explain the procedure and post operation care. We encourage all questions. 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.

I had a very pleasing experience at this Dental office. Staff and Doctor are very friendly and really take the time explain things. The overall care was comprehensive and through. I am definitely coming back.
