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

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.

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.
