Here at the office of Dr. Michael I. Feinburg, the top Brooklyn endodontist, the most common services that we provide for our patients is root canal therapy. The words root canal can often create feelings of fear and anxiety in patients, but our Brooklyn endodontist and the rest of our staff are here to assure you that this a is a safe and highly effective procedure. Additionally, getting a root canal procedure can often make the difference between saving your original tooth or needing to have it removed and replaced with a false tooth. The main reason that Dr. Feinburg recommends root canal therapy is if you have a tooth with an infected pulp. The pulp is a soft collection of tissue located at the center of each of your teeth. If you have a tooth that is decayed or damaged in some way, the pulp of the tooth can then easily be exposed to any bacteria or other harmful substances within your mouth. During the root canal procedure, our Brooklyn endodontist will work through a few important steps. First, we will remove the infected pulp. Next, we will carefully clean out the area to remove any lingering bacteria that could cause a future infection. Before concluding the procedure, we will also seal up the tooth as another preventive measure against future infections. Some signs that you might be in need of root canal therapy include: increased pain or sensitivity in a tooth, or noticeable breaks or damage to the tooth. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should visit our Brooklyn endodontist as soon as possible so that we can determine if you are in need of root canal therapy.
