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.
Brooklyn Root Canal Therapy
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.

Teeth are very strong but they can still break and fracture. The causes are many including, falling down, getting hit in your mouth, eating something hard that breaks your tooth, and your teeth weakened because of a cavity. Our Endodontist in Brooklyn, Michael Feinberg, DDS, treats a variety of emergencies that result from stressful dental injuries, one being fractured teeth. Damages in the back teeth often include fractured cusps, cracked teeth and the more serious split teeth. The tooth can usually be restored by Dr. Feinberg, if the crack has not spread into the root. If the crack has spread into the root and affects the pulp, root canal treatment is usually necessary in an attempt to save all or part of your tooth
Emergency Dental Care in Brooklyn
A tooth doesn’t always hurt when it breaks and often goes unnoticed for some time. This, of course, depends on the size of the break and where it’s located in your mouth. Pain can occur if there is damage to the pulp or the base of the tooth surface or if the tooth is exposed to saliva, air, or extremely cold or hot food or drinks. Of course, you will need to see our Endodontist in Brooklyn as soon as possible to fix your fractured tooth. It will also be important for Dr. Feinberg is fractured because of a cavity and whether or not there is nerve damage. If nerve damage is found then you will most likely need a root canal. If a child’s tooth fractures and there is nerve damage, there is a good chance of it repairing itself if it’s treated right away.
If fractures are minor and only affect the outer layer of the tooth without much pain, treatment will involve smoothing out the tooth’s enamel. Our Endodontist in Brooklyn may just need to file and polish the damaged tooth to achieve the desired result. If a root canal is required, Dr. Feinberg is skilled in the most advanced endodontic techniques and has specialized in emergency fractures. He combines state-of-the-art equipment with the current technology to repair, save and preserve your teeth.
