What is a root canal? When a tooth has been diagnosed with an irreversible condition by your dentist at ThoroughDent Smiles, a root canal may be utilized to avoid tooth removal. A root canal involves obtaining anesthesia or “numbness” in the area, removing the cavity or decay from the tooth and cleaning out the tooth from bacteria and debris. During this time, multiple medicaments may be used to help the cleaning process inside the tooth. After reshaping and cleaning the inside of the tooth from bacteria, a filling process is used from the inside of the tooth to the outside to restore back to original function and cosmetic value. Most commonly, the inside of the tooth is filled with an inert substance that allows the body to ignore the previous damage. Then, a special filling called a “core” is placed to build up the tooth structure. Lastly, a crown is commonly utilized to cap the tooth and protect the remaining brittle tooth structure. The crown will be esthetic and functional like the original tooth. It is normal to have mild discomfort after this surgical procedure but your dentist will walk you thru each step to help you best avoid discomfort during the healing process.
Dr. Neda is my permanent Dentist from day one when she just started her practice as a student at Dental college at the UK. Even so as a beginner in this field she showed that she will be an incredible Dentist. Her passions and dedication to this profession lead her to become a great Dentist who will do anything to satisfy you with the result. Her work always meets my expectations and do to my current work, I willing fly back to keep my appointment with her. Can't wait to see her again in her new office. I highly recommend this incredible lady as your dentist because you will never regret and disappointed with her work!
These dentists are absolutely wonderful. I’ve know both for many year and trust their work to be the highest standard of care. I can recall Dr. Neda telling me about a tooth that would break just before it did because if the way she evaluated fractures. Dr. Smith has treated me as well with a root canal and was an excellent clinician. Both doctors are incredible with outstanding bedside manner.
Nothing but the best. This team goes above and beyond to provide nothing but outstanding dental care in a comfortable environment at a convenient location. Looking forward to finishing my treatment plan with Dr. Neda in this new location. Lucky for Georgetown to have such a great dentist.
Dr. Neda has treated me for a toothache before and was very gentle and thorough. I really appreciate it how much time she took to explain what was going on. Looking forward to the grand opening!
I have always been terrified of dentist appointments because of pain and needles. However, Dr. Neda changed all of that. She is very understanding, professional and caring. She always lets me know what is going to be done and how. As well as being very gentle and helping to keep my mind off the needle while getting sedated. Highly recommend to everyone!
