Root canal treatment can save your tooth from extraction by repairing it at its core. Our Brooklyn root canal specialist, Dr. Michael Feinberg, is here to provide you with quality root canal treatment to mend your affected tooth and get you feeling better and pain-free. Root canal treatment is used when the pulp, or nerve of a tooth is inflamed, infected, or decayed. This can be caused by a number of different issues, such as tooth decay, trauma to the mouth and tooth, cracks in a tooth, chips in a tooth, or repeated dental procedures in one area that has worn the tooth down.
There are a few symptoms that might indicate that the pulp of your tooth needs root canal therapy. If you have a tooth that is especially sensitive to hot, cold, or percussion, you may have nerve damage in that tooth and you should pay a visit to our Brooklyn root canal dentist immediately so that he can relieve your symptoms. The usual treatment for an infected pulp is a non-surgical procedure performed by Dr. Feinberg that involves removing the diseased pulp that is causing you such discomfort, followed by a thorough cleansing of the root canal area, and concluding by sealing up the affected area. Throughout this root canal therapy we will use local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The entire process usually takes either one or very few visits to be completed. Root canal therapies provided by our Brooklyn root canal specialist have proven to be 90% effective, and if Dr. Feinberg thinks it will not work for you, he will discuss other options with you either at the initial consultation or once complications become apparent.
Root canal therapies often tend to inflict a sense of worry or fear on patients, and it is normal for you to have questions or concerns. If you do, our Brooklyn root canal specialist would love to hear from you and have the opportunity to ease your mind about the process. You can get in touch with Dr. Feinberg and the rest of his friendly staff either by calling our office, or sending us a message using the Contact Us form on our practice’s website. We hope to see you soon – if you are in need of a root canal, do not delay to procedure any longer! We are here to give you the relief you need.
