Here at the office of Dr. Michael I. Feinburg, the top endodontist in Brooklyn, one of the most common issues we see in our patients is cracked tooth syndrome. If you crack or break a tooth in any way, it is important that you seek treatment from an expert like our endodontist in Brooklyn right away. Many people do not get these kinds of issues immediately treated, and this sort of neglect can pose serious risks to your dental health, and can even cause you to need a full tooth extraction and replacement. The reasoning behind all this risk is that at the center of each of your tooth is a collection of soft tissue, referred to as the “pulp” of your tooth. When you crack or break your tooth, the pulp is then exposed to any bacteria present in your mouth at any time, like tartar or plaque. As a result, the pulp is then vulnerable to serious infection by those bacteria. Some signs that there is an infection include: moderate to severe pain in one of your teeth, increased tooth sensitivity to especially hot or cold temperatures, and a gradual darkening or discoloring of the tooth in question. If you notice any of these symptoms at all, you should schedule an appointment with our endodontist in Brooklyn as soon as possible so that we can provide you with the treatment you need. Often, Dr. Feinburg will recommend root canal therapy, during which we remove the infected pulp, carefully clean the entire area so it is bacteria-free, and then seal up the tooth for protection.

If you would like to learn more about root canal therapy, cracked tooth syndrome, and the many ways in which our endodontist in Brooklyn can be of service to you, we highly recommend that you pay a visit to Dr. Michael I. Feinburg’s main website to browse through the wealth of additional, detailed information we have available for you there.

Root Canal Therapy Brooklyn

Years and years ago, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. However, Dr. Michael Feinberg, your Brooklyn endodontist, can save that tooth with advanced root canal therapy. Endodontics is a specialist sub-field of dentistry that focuses on the pulp of the tooth and the tissue around it. Endodontists, like Dr. Feinberg are familiar with how to stabilize and protect the sensitive and important innards of your teeth, where your tooth is actually living. Through root canals and other procedures, the Borough Park endodontists at the Brooklyn offices of Dr. Feinberg can extend the life of decaying teeth, thus giving you a healthier mouth.

The root of your tooth is underneath the gum line, whereas the visible portion of the tooth is called the crown. The outer portion of the root is a hard tissue called dentin and the inside channel, or “root canal” is a pulp of soft tissue, blood vessels and nerves. The “root canal” is responsible for forming the surrounding dentin and enamel during tooth development. When the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, you’ll require endodontic treatment with Dr. Feinberg. Oftentimes, it is a result from deep cavities called caries, repeated dental procedures, cracks or chips. If pulp inflammation or infection goes untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. The common symptoms accompanying a root canal include prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling or tenderness of the tooth, or swelling or tenderness of adjacent gums. Rather than pull out the infected tooth, our Flatbush endodontic specialists aim to save our patient’s natural teeth by restoring dental health and function.

Endodontic treatment helps save your tooth by removing the diseased portion of the tooth, in this case, the pulp. Additionally, it prevents further infection because your Brooklyn endodontist, Dr. Feinberg, will carefully clean and shape the canal system and then permanently seal the prepared space. The outer surface is then sealed with a temporary restoration, and later on, a permanent restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and recontamination.
