If you are seeking a Sheepshead Bay emergency dentist, Michael I. Feinburg can be contacted to treat your dental emergency. We understand accidents do happen and while our office is open 7 days per week with day and evening appointments available, if you suffer a dental emergency and require treatment while our office is closed, you may contact Dr. Feinburg by calling our service at (718) 355-9939 and Dr. Feinberg will contact you. The most commonly treated dental emergencies are traumatic injuries which may include tooth avulsion or the loss of the tooth from the gum as well as dislodged teeth.
After an injury, your tooth may have been pushed partially out of the socket and Dr. Feinberg may be able to easily re-position and stabilize your tooth. Following the determination that the pulp is still healthy, no other treatment may be required. In the case of a damaged or infected pulp, a root canal treatment may be necessary and may be scheduled soon after your injury. When a tooth has been completely knocked out, Dr. Feinberg urges patients to keep the tooth moist for best chance of keeping your natural tooth viable if you cannot immediately place the tooth back in the socket. Store your tooth in milk or a glass of water with a pinch of salt while seeking immediate treatment by your Sheepshead Bay emergency dentist, Michael I. Feinburg. Both the way your tooth was stored and the amount of time it was out of your mouth contribute to the type of dental treatment you will require as well as the level of success you are likely to achieve.
In addition to providing premier services as your Sheepshead Bay emergency dentist, the exemplary team of dental professionals at the office of Michael I. Feinburg are also available to address your endodontic dental needs. If you need further assistance, either with a dental emergency or to schedule an appointment at our office, please call (718) 355-9939 and a friendly and compassionate member of our staff will be able to provide you with an appointment, answer questions regarding accepted insurance plans and methods of payment, as well as most other concerns as a new patient.
Here at the office of Dr. Michael I. Feinburg, our Sheepshead Bay tooth extractions are highly common services. One of the main reasons why patients need their teeth extracted is because the tooth is severely damaged due to neglect and decay. If you have a tooth that is decayed, the pulp of the tooth (which is a collection of soft tissue located at the center of each of your teeth) is vulnerable to infection from the bacteria present within your mouth. A decayed tooth in general is painful, but a tooth with an infected pulp is even more painful. You are likely to experience moderate to severe tooth pain, with increased pain while biting down or chewing. You are also likely to experience increased tooth sensitivity, which can cause you pain while drinking or eating something especially hot or cold. If you think you have a decayed tooth or a decayed and infected tooth, you should spare no time in scheduling an appointment with Dr. Michael I. Feinburg. We use our Sheepshead Bay tooth extractions as last resorts, because we feel it is always best to preserve our patients’ natural teeth whenever possible, and so it is important to get the treatment you need before the tooth gets to the stage where an extraction is the only option left. If you see us soon enough, Dr. Feinburg may recommend a root canal procedure in order to restore and preserve the tooth. During root canal therapy, we remove the infected pulp, carefully and thoroughly clear away any remaining bacteria, and then seal up the tooth so that it will not be infected again. If your tooth is past the point where root canal therapy will be useful, we may recommend one of our Sheepshead Bay tooth extractions.

There are plenty of reasons to schedule a visit with your dentist. Annual checkups and exams are necessary to properly monitor your overall oral health. Dental cleanings about every six months can help make sure that your teeth are free of significant plaque buildup and that you do not exhibit signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Not visiting your dentist frequently enough can result in the development of cavities and other conditions. If you experience any pain, discomfort or other new symptoms then you should definitely schedule a visit with your dentist, and Dr. Michael I. Feinburg is here to help, especially when it comes to root canals here in Sheepshead Bay.
Sometimes, conditions such as cavities can go unnoticed until they spread significantly. Depending on where they are located, cavities can yield little to no symptoms or pain but that doesn’t mean that they still shouldn’t be treated. If this tooth decay spreads, it can affect the tooth root which definitely yields noticeable symptoms. An infected tooth root will be sensitive to hot and cold foods as well as air hitting the infected location, and it can also feel painful when you apply and release pressure on the tooth when biting down and releasing your bite. If you experience any of these symptoms, then schedule a visit here in Sheepshead Bay with Dr. Michael I. Feinburg as soon as possible. If you exhibit any of these symptoms and Dr. Feinburg examines your teeth and affirms the situation, then he can begin to plan your root canal therapy. Root canal therapy includes removing the inflamed and infected tissue surrounding the area and cleaning out the root of the tooth. Once this cavity is cleared of decayed tissue, the cavity is filled to prevent further damage or infection.
If a root canal infection is left untreated, it can spread to other teeth and affect your jawbone as well. Not only that, but it will remain to be painful and will only get worse. If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above and believe you may need a root canal procedure or are simply due for a routine examination, then schedule an appointment with Dr. Michael I. Feinburg today.
