Root End Resection in Brooklyn

If you are having a problem with a tooth, such as extreme tooth pain, you will want to see our endodontist. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in treatments which are meant to allow the life of a tooth. At our endodontic practice, Michael I. Feinberg, our Brooklyn emergency dentist is Dr. Michael I. Feinberg.

When you have a tooth that needs emergency treatment after a root canal, you made need to have an endodontic treatment called an apicoectomy. An apicoectomy is also called a root end resection. This surgical treatment is performed when an endodontist needs to remove infection from the root tip of a tooth as well as from the surrounding tissue. This procedure is performed when an infection persists even after root canal therapy is performed on the tooth. A root canal treatment is effective in saving a tooth in over 90% of cases. However, there are times when additional treatment is needed after a root canal, including a root canal re-treatment or an apicoectomy. Our Brooklyn emergency dentist will need to perform this procedure when a tooth is seriously infected, and infection is found in the root tip.

When this procedure is being performed, our Brooklyn emergency dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue that allows the bone and surrounding inflamed tissue to be exposed. The damaged tissue can then be removed as well as the end of the root tip. Our dentist will then place a root-end filling which will hopefully prevent reinfection of the root. Then the gum is closed with sutures. The bone will heal around the root over a period of several months, restoring the tooth and root to full function. Our patient may experience some discomfort or even some swelling while the incision heals. This is completely normal, as can be expected with many different types of surgical procedures. Our Brooklyn emergency dentist will be able to recommend an appropriate pain medication, if needed. Without this type of emergency care, the tooth would not be able to be saved, and would need to be extracted. When you experience any type of dental pain it is very important that you come in to see our dentist as soon as possible. In almost all cases, the sooner treatment is provided, the more likely it is that the treatment will be successful and that your tooth will be saved. Saving your tooth will eliminate the need for getting a dental implant or other tooth replacement. For an appointment to see our endodontist regarding tooth pain, contact our office and let them know that you need to be seen on an emergency basis.

Apicoectomy in Brooklyn

Dental care is an important thing to consider, especially if you are experiencing any signs or symptoms along the lines of oral pain or general discomfort. People oftentimes attribute these sorts of symptoms to cavities and the like, and generally that may be true, but these symptoms are also synonymous with root canal infections as well. In either case, oral pain should be treated as a dental emergency so it is important that you get the immediate care that you need as soon as you possibly can. Here with our Brooklyn emergency dentist Michael I. Feinburg you can have dental procedures such as root canal therapy, or even root end resections and apicoectomies performed as soon as possible.

Oral pain is an emergency in and of itself, especially when it is related to an infected root canal. Though the symptoms of cavities and root canal infections are fairly similar, infected root canals tend to be more severe because the nerve ending located at the center of the tooth is inflamed. This inflammation can be especially painful, and even create a constant dull, and sometimes sharp, pain as a result. In order to get these sorts of dental problems resolved, you will need to see a dentist or an endodontist as soon as possible. When it comes to treating an infected root canal, any inflamed and infected tissue is removed, along with the root pulp and sometimes the entire nerve ending, too. Root canal therapy is not always completely successful, however, especially since it is a rather delicate process. In the event that this should happen, you may need a root end resection or an apicoectomy in order to rectify the issue, and our Brooklyn emergency dentist Michael I. Feinburg is here to provide you with the urgent care that you need.

The sooner you have any instances of tooth infections treated the more likely you will be able to prevent the issue from spreading. With the help of our Brooklyn emergency dentist, you can have the issue addressed and treated as soon as possible, so call us today and book your appointment with Michael I. Feinburg as soon as you can.

Root canal therapy, or sometimes just called root canal, has come a long way. Gone are the days when you had to think of root canal as something to fear. Today, thanks to modern techniques and equipment, our Brooklyn endodontist can assure you that it’s a process that will relieve you of the pain you are already experiencing, rather than cause you additional pain. In fact, most patients report little or no discomfort during root canal.

When your tooth’s pulp becomes infected, due to the effects of tooth decay, a deep filling, or a tooth that is cracked or chipped, bacteria has the opportunity to get inside your tooth and reach the pulp. The result is typically an infection and a great deal of pain. Of course, brushing after meals and flossing every along with regular six month dental exams and teeth cleanings is the best way to prevent that from happening. The reality, though, is that no matter how much effort you put into your oral care, circumstance may conspire that will lead you to needing root canal. The most obvious symptom is pain, often severe, when you chew with the tooth or apply pressure to it. Among the other signs to look for tooth discoloration, tender gums, and becoming highly sensitive to very hot or cold liquids. If you do experience any of the above, call us right away and we’ll book you for an appointment with our Brooklyn endodontist.

The procedure begins with a local anesthetic to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible. Access to the pulp is achieved by drilling from the top of the tooth. The nerve and injured pulp will be removed. The area is cleaned as are the canals, which are then sealed. You may need multiple visits for our Brooklyn endodontist to complete the work. If so, you will be fitted for a temporary crown to protect the tooth in the mean time. After the root canal is finished, you will be measured for a permanent crown. With an impressive success rate of about 90%, root canal is the best, and usually only, way to save your natural tooth once it has succumbed to infection.

When you don’t take proper care of your teeth, gums, and mouth, diseases and infections can cause pain and even decay of the teeth. If the decay becomes too advanced, the best treatment option may be an endodontic procedure such as root canal therapy. Success for this type of treatment occurs in more than 90% of cases. Unfortunately for some, this dreaded procedure does not always heal as planned, and retreatment may be necessary. If you need to undergo retreatment for your root canal, you can rest easy knowing that at our endodontic office in Brooklyn, Michael Feinberg, DDS will provide the most comfortable care for your retreatment.

Many people cringe when they hear the words “root canal”. Even more cringe-worthy is when, in some cases, a tooth that has received endodontic treatment fails to heal as expected due to re-infection or other complications. If this has happened to you, then an endodontic retreatment from our endodontist office in Brooklyn is the best solution. A retreatment is similar to an initial root canal but instead of removing the pulp tissue, Dr. Feinberg will remove the old root canal filling material and reinstitute root canal therapy. After carefully shaping, sterilizing, and cleaning the inside of the canal, the opening is filled and sealed with a rubber-like compound. At the next appointment, usually a week later, the roots and the inside cavity of the tooth will be filled and sealed with special dental materials. A filling will be placed to cover the opening on top of the tooth. In addition, all teeth that have root canal treatment should have a crown (cap) placed. This will protect the tooth and prevent it from breaking, and restore it to its full function.

Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your root canal therapy. However, if you require an endodontic retreatment due to improper healing or other complications of a previous endodontic treatment, then Dr. Feinberg would be happy to assist you. With the expertise of our endodontist office in Brooklyn, receiving endodontic retreatment no longer has to be an uncomfortable, frightening experience. You’ll leave our offices smiling, showing off your beautiful, well cared-for teeth!

When tooth decay leads to an infection that requires root canal therapy, in the vast majority of cases (about 90%), the procedure is successful and there are no complications. But for various reasons, a new infection can occur in the root tip and the surrounding area. If this happens, you can come in to see our Brooklyn emergency dentist. There are several options for addressing this problem depending on your unique circumstances, including endodontic retreatment, which is essentially the same as doing a root canal therapy to begin with. In the worst case scenario, you might end up losing the tooth. And then there is a safe and effective procedure called an apicoectomy, also known as a root end resection.

Our Brooklyn emergency dentist can perform this to save your tooth while at the same time eradicating the underlying infection, along with the pain you are most likely feeling from it. After numbing you sufficiently with a local anesthetic, Dr. Feinburg will cut open your gums in the area of the infected tooth, in order to see the bone and detect the tissue that needs to be removed. The tip of the root will also be removed, and then a special filling will be applied as a precaution against any additional infections. To close the procedure, the gums will be sutured shut.

After you have had a root end resection from our Brooklyn emergency dentist, you may notice some discomfort and swelling. Either over-the-counter or prescription pain medication can be used to provide the needed relief. The bone will heal over the course of a few months. The advantage of getting this procedure done is that you get you keep your natural tooth, thereby avoiding an extraction and having to get a restoration such as a dental implant or bridge to replace it; and if you decided not to get a restoration for any reason, your other teeth could shift, you would find that your smile was affected if it’s a front tooth, or your chewing ability if it’s a back tooth. What is most important to remember is that we’re here for you when you need us. If you have a toothache, call us right away.

Tooth pain is certainly inconvenient, but it should also not be ignored.

In order to treat a dislodged tooth, you will most likely need it removed and our tooth pain dentist in Brooklyn can extract it for you. Sustaining an injury to your mouth and/or teeth can also cause injuries that may not easily be seen or identifiable. If you are experiencing tooth pain that is localized but not easy to spot, then you may have cracked tooth syndrome. The problem with cracked tooth syndrome is that it can be difficult to spot. Some cracks can be so fine that they are hard to spot, but cracked teeth are typically treated with dental crowns regardless. A dental crown can be applied to keep a tooth intact and prevent any further pain or damage from occurring. Usually, the pain from a cracked tooth originates from the movement of the cracked portions of the tooth, and since the tooth has not fully split or splintered, this friction can pinch the tooth’s nerve. The application of a dental crown can stop this from happening.

If you are experiencing tooth pain of any kind, call us and schedule an appointment with our tooth pain dentist in Brooklyn. Michael Feinberg, DDS can help when it comes to dislodged tooth replacement and cracked tooth syndrome, and will help relieve your dental pain in no time.

Cracked Teeth Treatment Brooklyn

Cracked tooth treatment

Tooth pain always indicates a problem that needs to be addressed. In the case of a cracked tooth, determining the exact nature of the issue isn’t always easy. A tooth with a tiny crack won’t be visible and may yield symptoms similar to having a root canal infection. What’s essential to realize is that a crack will not simply go away. If anything, it will get worse, cause more pain, and eventuality lead to an infection of the pulp tissue and the need for root canal treatment. By availing yourself of our Brooklyn cracked teeth treatment, you can possibly avoid the chances of complicated root canal work or even the chance of needing the tooth extracted.

Among the symptoms that might indicate the presence of a tooth with a crack in it is erratic

pain when chewing or when exposed to very hot or cold temperatures, such as drinking hot coffee or iced tea. One clue is that if the pain is noticeable when you release biting pressure, that could mean s cracked tooth. Chewing may lead to movement of the cracked part of the tooth and allow access to the pulp, causing irritation or even infection. If you experience any of the above, call us right away and schedule an appointment for our Brooklyn cracked teeth treatment.

Dr. Feinberg will examine you and possibly take x-rays to pinpoint which tooth is affected and if a crack is indeed present. This can be tricky because cracks are often very tiny. Once the crack is found, an evaluation of the tooth will be made to decide what the best course of action is. Our cracked tooth treatment in Brooklyn may require that a crown be placed onto the tooth to stabilize it and keep it protected from being infected. If the pulp area has been infected, root canal therapy may be the best option. This will allow the infection to be eliminated and a crown will then be placed on top of the remaining part of the tooth. Of course, if the tooth is too badly damaged, it may need to be removed. This is the last resort and we will try to save your tooth if at all possible.
