Root CanalAn Overview
If you have an infected tooth, cracked tooth or tooth pain, you may require a root canal procedure. At Manassas Smiles, Dr. Nadder Hassan performs most root canal procedures in our Centreville, VA dentist office. A “root canal” actually refers to the area inside of the tooth where the tooth pulp and nerves are located. More commonly, however, the term root canal is used to refer to an endodontic procedure that removes decay from the tooth chamber, restoring the tooth to optimal health
Sedation Dentistry for Dental Anxiety
We understand that many patients face dental anxiety. Dr. Hassan offers sedation dentistry methods to help patients feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible during their root canal procedure. Dr. Hassan will discuss your sedation options before your treatment so that you may choose the method best for your health. Your safety and well-being are our top priority; our team is highly trained, and carefully monitors all patients during their treatment.
They're very understanding with the fact that I have anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. They're very patient, they always ask to make sure I'm fine and if this hurts to much or whatever, so they're very attentive to my needs and making sure I'm as comfortable…Sheila F.

So thankful I saw this office and no other! I hadn't been to the dentist in over 2 years (dumb on my part) and received such great care here. Was really nervous, so much that I cried at least twice and the dentist and assistants made sure they made me…Kayli L.

Root Canal What to Expect
The procedure is relatively simple. It can typically be performed in just one visit to our Centreville, VA dentist office. Root canals are performed using a local anesthetic for the majority of patients. Dr. Hassan offers sedation dentistry options for patients who suffer from dental anxiety.
First, the dentist makes a small hole to access the tooth pulp that is infected. The infected tissue and damaged nerve will be removed and the root canal will be disinfected. Once the tooth is free of decay, the tooth will be thoroughly cleaned and then filled with a biocompatible resin.
Finally, Dr. Hassan will cover the tooth with a dental crown to add strength and protect it from future damage. A dental crown can be custom designed to match the color of adjacent. The dental crown will fit over the root canal tooth to preserve the tooth.
