Flatlands Painless Root Canals

Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures performed across the world because they can save your natural teeth from extraction! At the endodontic practice of Dr. Michael Feinberg, you can prevent the need for dental implant or dental bridges by having a root canal performed on any infected or decayed tooth. Common root canal symptoms include sensitivity to temperature, pain in the tooth and gums, or visible swelling of the tooth. If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is recommended that you schedule a visit with Flatlands endodontist, Dr. Feinberg for a root canal exam and evaluation today.

When the center of your tooth, the pulp, becomes infected, a non-surgical root canal can eliminate the diseased pulp. Flatands root canal specialist, Dr. Feinberg will carefully remove the injured pulp and thoroughly clean and seal the root canal system so that infection does not reoccur. For most of our endodontic patients, non-surgical root canals are over ninety precent successful with the tooth returning to its original health and maintaining its structure and function. To ensure that your tooth is healing properly however, you’ll need to schedule regular dental exams with Dr. Feinberg once endodontic therapy is completed. If you receive endodontic treatment at another office and are still experiencing symptoms, please call our endodontic office. We are here to assist you with all your treatment needs, whether they be endodontic retreatment or a diagnosis of oral pain.

If you have fractured or traumatized teeth, and are experiencing oral pain, non surgical root canal therapy can be the answer to your discomfort. Infection of the pulp can be caused by a variety of tooth trauma, including deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Visit Dr. Feinberg at either his Flatbush or Borough park location today to see if  root canal treatment is best for you and your oral health.

Brooklyn Endodontic Retreatment

Brooklyn Endodontic Retreatment

Endodontic Retreatment with Brooklyn endodontist, Dr. Michael Feinberg, is a second chance to save your infected tooth! Most teeth that have had root canal therapy can last as long as other natural teeth. However a treated tooth will fail to heal naturally and continues to cause pain. It’s possible for a successfully treated tooth to become diseased months after treatment. Brooklyn endodontic retreatment with Dr. Feinberg offers the possibility to save your tooth after it has failed to heal or developed new problems. A retreatment is similar to an initial root canal but instead of removing the pulp tissue, we remove the old root canal filling material.

There are many reasons why a root canal does not heal properly. Occasionally narrow canals were not treated during the initial root canal, or a complicated canal anatomy was undetected. Sometimes if a crown or restoration was not placed soon enough after the root canal, saliva can contaminate the inside of the tooth.

Retreated teeth can function well for years and with proper oral care, they can last for the rest of your life. Flatbush Endodontist, Dr. Feinburg thinks its always best to try and save the tooth rather than remove it. Extracting the tooth requires more restorative dental work that is often far too costly or not covered under insurance plans. No matter how effective modern tooth restorations are, nothing compares to saving your natural teeth with Dr. Feinberg in Brooklyn.
