Endodontic services 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 goes untreated, 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 vigorously to remove any remaining bacteria. The cavity is then refilled with a biocompatible filling material. While the procedure may seem daunting, at Fairfield we have years of experience in the field and will make your treatment a effective one.
What to expect on your visit with our Fairfield Endodontist
During the initial consultation, patients meet with the dentist to determine the endodontic treatment that will best fulfill their treatment needs. In addition to having your endodontic needs assessed, you can also expect a relaxing visit where you can listen to music during treatment and enjoy a Keurig coffee beverage before or after your appointment. We also provide complimentary Wi-Fi so feel free to come early and get caught up on some emails with your own mobile device. During a root canal procedure, provides patients with a comfortable and speedy experience. The area around the removal site receive 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, we 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.
After the inner cavity is cleaned, a filling is placed. We are experts when it comes to working quickly without sacrificing the quality of his work. Most root canal therapies can be completed in one visit to our Fairfield office, however certain cases may require additional visits.
