At our dental practice, we specialize in saving teeth. Our top-notch endodontist, Dr. Michael I. Feinberg, can help you if you experience dental trauma and have a resulting dislodged tooth. Additionally, if you are experiencing Flatbush oral pain, you should make an immediate appointment to come to our endodontic practice, Michael I. Feinberg.

At our practice, our endodontist can help you with Flatbush oral pain or by providing emergency endodontic care for teeth that have experienced trauma. Two common trauma injuries of teeth are when teeth are dislodged or avulsed. When a tooth is dislodged, it means that the tooth has been pushed back into its socket. This can happen when there is tooth trauma during some type of accident, or even sports participation. If the tooth is partially pushed out of its socket, our endodontist may be able to reposition the tooth. This will stabilize the tooth, and hopefully save the tooth. Our dentist will need to check that the pulp is remaining healthy, and if this occurs, no additional treatment will be necessary. But if our endodontist determines that the pulp is becoming damaged or infected, a root canal treatment will be required. Root canal treatment is effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases; it can be performed while our patient remains perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair due to our use of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, and modern dental anesthesia. When root canal treatment is necessary, it is usually started just a few weeks after the initial injury has occurred. At a later time, a permanent root canal filling will be placed and the root canal system will be sealed. When a tooth is avulsed it has been knocked out of your mouth. In this case, contact our office immediately and let our office staff provide you with the safest way to transport the tooth to our office.

If you have a dislodged or avulsed tooth, or Flatbush oral pain, contact our office for an immediate appointment.

Treatment of Cracked Tooth Syndrome in Flatbush

Cracked teeth can eventually break and cause tooth decay so that the tooth ends up needing extraction. At the offices of Michael I. Feinburg, we treat cracked tooth syndrome to help save your teeth and save the area from further damage and expensive dental bills. We’ve been providing great dental services to the New York area for over 35 years, and our emergency endodontist in Flatbush can provide immediate endodontic care. We have two offices, one in Flatbush and one in Borough Park.

Our emergency endodontist in Flatbush provides patients with an anxiety free, pain free experience using the most skilled endodontic techniques. Dr. Feinberg also provides evaluation and diagnosis of oral pain, root canal therapy, surgical endodontics and treatment of fractured and dislodged teeth. Cracked teeth can happen in a number of ways and cause pain, possibly while chewing, biting or when the tooth is exposed to different temperatures. Further chewing causes the cracked pieces of the tooth to move and can begin to irritate the pulp inside, which can be extremely painful. When bite pressure is released, it may cause sharp pain. This back and forth movement and painful condition can cause the pulp inside to be damaged permanently, leading to infection and possible extraction.

If the pulp becomes too damaged, we may require a root canal treatment. Root canals clean up the inside of the tooth and remove the infected pulp, saving the entire tooth from needing extraction. Our emergency endodontist in Flatbush will remove, clean and seal the tooth. The entire procedure is simple and involves only local anesthesia. It is not painful and once completed, a crown is placed on top to protect the area. Root canal success happens in more than 90% of patients. Symptoms that pulp may be inflamed include sensitivity to heat, cold and percussion.

Flatbush tooth extractions

Two of the most dreaded dental procedures for patients are having a tooth pulled or extracted, or having a root canal. You may avoid going to your dentist altogether because of this fear. However, at the office of Michael I. Feinburg, you will receive the best dental care using the most advanced techniques, equipment, and materials. With over 35 years of experience, Dr. Feinburg is a highly skilled dentist who specializes in Flatbush tooth extractions, as well as root canals, and will sure to make the experience as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible no matter what your oral health needs may be.

There are several reasons why a tooth may have to be extracted. Of course, Dr. Feinburg will make every effort to repair and restore your tooth. A root canal procedure can sometimes prevent a tooth from being extracted. Many people cringe when they hear the words “root canal”. But what was once a painful, invasive procedure is now relatively pain-free, with non-surgical treatments available. However, the best option is still to practice proper, preventative oral hygiene habits so that a root canal can be avoided completely. Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve or pulp of a tooth is affected by decay or infection, or if there has been significant injury or trauma to the tooth. Symptoms of the infection are generally acute dental pain or sensitivity to hot, cold or percussion. During root canal therapy, the injured or diseased pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. Your root canal therapy will begin by Dr. Feinburg making an opening in the crown of the tooth or teeth. Then he will gently remove the infected or inflamed pulp from your tooth. 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. However, sometimes a Flatbush tooth extraction is unavoidable. This may be due to sever tooth damage or trauma. Teeth are pulled either by simple extraction, which are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, or by surgical extraction.

Teeth treated by Dr. Feinburg can last just as long as natural teeth, but a re-treatment may be required in some cases due to improper healing or other complications. You will be given care instructions after each appointment. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your root canal treatment. With the expertise of Dr. Friedman, receiving a root canal no longer has to be an uncomfortable, frightening experience. If it is decided that your tooth is beyond repair and restoration, then a Flatbush tooth extractions may be the best option to ensure your oral health. Either way, you’ll leave our offices smiling, showing off your beautiful, well cared-for teeth!

Dr. Feinberg’s practice is limited to endodontics, which specifically is the art of saving teeth. Dr. Feinberg specializes in root canal therapy. Our endodontist in Flatbush has over 35 years of experience in the field. He provides endodontic services for his patients in an environment that is pain and anxiety free.

Among the endodontic treatments offered at our practice are: diagnosis of oral pain; root canal therapy; endodontic retreatment; apicoectomies; and treatment of damaged or cracked teeth.

One of the most common forms of endodontic treatment required by our patients is root canal therapy. It is needed when the inside pulp of a tooth is decayed, infected or inflamed. This treatment can save your tooth and keep you from needing a dental implant or bridge. If you have a tooth that is sensitive to hot or cold, or pressure, you may well be in need of a root canal. During this procedure, the damaged pulp is removed and the interior root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This is done using local anesthesia; it is usually completed in one visit but it may involve more. The tooth is usually saved in over 90% of the cases. When treatment is not successful and dues not heal as expected, a retreatment can be done that will involve removing the old root canal filling material and repeating the root canal therapy. Another common treatment performed by our endodontist in Flatbush is an apicoectomy. This surgical procedure, also known as a root end resection, involves removing infection from the root tip and surrounding tissue. This may be needed when root canal therapy is not successful in halting infection and inflammations. If you are in need of a great endodontist, contact us today at Dr. Feinberg’s office for an appointment. You owe it to yourself to take care of your dental pain, and hopefully save your valued tooth in the process.
