Parkside Dental Care: Your Resource For Endodontics & Root Canals in Fairfield
At Parkside Dental Care, our Fairfield dental team offers a wide range of dental specialties, including endodontics. Endodontic dentistry focuses on the cause, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease in the dental pulp. When pulp infection occurs, the most effective treatment is often root canal therapy. During root canal therapy, the infected pulp is removed from the cavity, which is then cleaned to remove any remaining bacteria. The cavity is then filled with a biocompatible material.
What to expect on your visit with our Fairfield Endodontist
During the initial consultation, patients meet with our doctors to determine the endodontic treatment that will best fulfill their treatment needs. During a root canal procedure, our doctors provides patients with a comfortable experience. The area around the removal site receives a dose of local anesthesia. A sheet of latex is placed around the tooth to keep it isolated and sterile during the procedure. Unlike other root canal therapies, our doctors prefer to create the “canal” portion from the root of the tooth down, rather than the crown. This creates a less noticeable opening in the tooth, leaving the patient with a great looking smile. The decayed tissue is then removed and the cavity is cleaned and filled. Our doctors are experts when it comes to working quickly without sacrificing the quality of their work so most root canal therapies can be completed in one visit to our Fairfield office, however certain cases may require additional visits.
