For run-of-the-mill dental issues, generalists can do the job. But for more specific, complicated afflictions, you’ll definitely want to see a specialist—like an endodontist. For instance, for apicoectomies you’ll want to see Michael I. Feinberg. Don’t hesitate to contact him about getting yourself setup for dental surgery Brooklyn. Your smile will thank you for it in the long run.

Maybe your eyes glazed over at the word apicoectomy. Fair enough, it’s not exactly a procedure you hear about in the average conversation. But first, let’s start off with clarifying what an endodontist does. An endodontist is the kind of highly-specialized dental professional who deals in all things pulp. Not the orange juice kind. By pulp, we’re referring to dental roots, which can very easily become irritated and/or infected when exposed. Which leads to the kind of crippling pain no one should ever go through. Even the slightest amount of pressure is enough to send shock waves of crippling pain. An apicoectomy (now we’re getting to it) is done after the tooth has had (at least) one root canal procedure and retreatment has not been possible or successful. Details about this procedure are best discussed directly with a professional. If that’s a conversation you’re wanting to have, don’t think twice about reaching out to Michael I. Feinberg about it. After you’ve assessed all the information, don’t think twice about taking the steps necessary to get you on your way to dental surgery Brooklyn.

Don’t dawdle any longer in uncertainty—unless you want to continue struggling with the discomfort. Besides getting started is incredibly simple. All you have to do is shoot Michael I. Feinberg’s office a phone call to schedule an appointment. An e-mail works just as well, too. Whichever your preference take the steps necessary to be moments away from dental surgery Brooklyn.

If you have a severe toothache, you should book an appointment with our Sunset Park endodontist, Dr. Michael Feinberg. A persistent toothache, especially if the tooth is severely discolored, and darker than the rest of your teeth, can indicate the presence of damaged nerve tissue or pulp, located deep inside your tooth. This damaged tissue can then breakdown within the tooth and gums, allowing bacteria to grow and cause infections, otherwise known as an abscessed tooth. These problems should not be ignored, but treated swiftly and immediately through root canal therapy.

A root canal infection can happen for a variety of reasons. Trauma to the face can cause chipped or cracked teeth, which can lead to infection. Tooth decay is also a likely culprit. Repeated dental procedures done to a small area can cause the region to become inflamed and promote the risk for infection, so it is important to discuss your dental history with our Sunset Park endodontist before undergoing any procedure.

Abscessed teeth from root canal infections can also cause continued problems to your jaw and facial structure if the problem is allowed to prolong itself. Cases of severe root canal infection can cause swelling that spreads to the jaw, face, neck, and even further reaches of the head. These infections of the root canal can also lead to bone loss from the area adjacent to the root tip. For truly specialized care of your root canal, patients should look no further than the Sunset Park endodontic offices of Michael Feinberg, DDS. The key difference between the practice of endodontics and a traditional dentist practice is in what area of oral health they cover. Dentistry comes from the word dentin, which is the surface of the teeth. As such, most dentists are trained to treat surface problems of the teeth, such as plaque buildup, gum line issues, cosmetic dentistry, and bite problems. Endodontics is a specialized field which focuses solely on the treatment of the dental pulp and the nerves located deep within your teeth.

Dr. Feinberg has been proudly serving the community as a local Sunset Park endodontist for over 35 years. Dr. Feinberg prides himself on keeping up with the latest endodontic techniques in his specialized practice to give you the best care possible. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff understands that many of us have dental anxieties and fears of having work done, and so we make it our duty to provide you with specialized care in a warm and relaxed setting. Even when the office is closed, Dr. Feinberg will take calls for endodontist emergencies, such as a facial injury, to care for his patients, such is his dedication to the task of oral health.
