Brooklyn endodontist, Dr. Feinberg, possesses the advanced surgical and non-surgical skills necessary to perform complex procedures including retreatment of previous root canals that have no completely healed. While most teeth that have had root canal therapy with Dr. Feinberg can last as long as other natural teeth, occasionally, endodontic treatment fails to heal correctly. Months, or even years, after successful root canal therapy, your tooth can become painful and diseased. If this tooth has no healed or has developed new problems, there is a second chance to save the tooth with endodontic retreatment.

Your tooth can fail to heal for many different reasons, including delay of placing the final restoration following a root canal, improper cleansing of narrow or curved canals in the tooth, and the restoration did not fully protect the treated tooth from recontamination. If retreatment is necessary and can be successful, Dr. Feinberg will reopen the tooth and extract the filling material. The canals will be thoroughly cleaned and carefully examined to make sure all canals are treated. After this retreatment, you’ll need to see your general dentist for a final tooth restoration anywhere from two to five weeks later. For a second chance at saving your natural teeth, visit Brooklyn root canal specialist, Dr. Feinberg.

Years and years ago, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. However, Dr. Michael Feinberg, your Brooklyn endodontist, can save that tooth with advanced root canal therapy. Endodontics is a specialist sub-field of dentistry that focuses on the pulp of the tooth and the tissue around it. Endodontists, like Dr. Feinberg are familiar with how to stabilize and protect the sensitive and important innards of your teeth, where your tooth is actually living. Through root canals and other procedures, the Borough Park endodontists at the Brooklyn offices of Dr. Feinberg can extend the life of decaying teeth, thus giving you a healthier mouth.

The root of your tooth is underneath the gum line, whereas the visible portion of the tooth is called the crown. The outer portion of the root is a hard tissue called dentin and the inside channel, or “root canal” is a pulp of soft tissue, blood vessels and nerves. The “root canal” is responsible for forming the surrounding dentin and enamel during tooth development. When the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, you’ll require endodontic treatment with Dr. Feinberg. Oftentimes, it is a result from deep cavities called caries, repeated dental procedures, cracks or chips. If pulp inflammation or infection goes untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. The common symptoms accompanying a root canal include prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling or tenderness of the tooth, or swelling or tenderness of adjacent gums. Rather than pull out the infected tooth, our Flatbush endodontic specialists aim to save our patient’s natural teeth by restoring dental health and function.

Endodontic treatment helps save your tooth by removing the diseased portion of the tooth, in this case, the pulp. Additionally, it prevents further infection because your Brooklyn endodontist, Dr. Feinberg, will carefully clean and shape the canal system and then permanently seal the prepared space. The outer surface is then sealed with a temporary restoration, and later on, a permanent restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and recontamination.
