Dr. Usman explains facility details
Our focus is to be 100 percent for patient relaxation and comfort.

The latest Face Facts segment by the doctors at Visage Surgical Institute focused on root canal treatments. It was their second television appearance during Dr. Oz, and they took this opportunity to explain “endo-asleep,” a root canal treatment they say is safe, physician-administered and exclusive to their practice in the Cleveland area.

“As a board certified endodontist, I treat conditions that relate to the inside of the tooth,” says Dr. Usman. “Our most common procedure is called root canal treatment, which addresses infection, facial pain and dental trauma.”

Root canal treatment is recommended when patients present infection or damage in the tooth’s pulp, which can be caused by a fractured tooth or untreated cavity. It’s a procedure that tends to cause anxiety in many people.

Dr. Usman explains some of the measures taken at Visage Surgical Institute to reduce patient anxiety during root canal treatment and other dental procedures.

Modern technology plays a major role. Visual aids, including microscopes, help the doctors see details and treat patients quickly and comfortably. Medical equipment is placed in a way that helps minimize patient anxiety. “Our focus is to be 100 percent for patient relaxation and comfort,”Dr. Usman says.
