Here at the office of expert Midwood endodontist, Dr. Michael I. Feinburg, we are here to help you achieve the healthiest and happiest smile. One of the most common services that our Midwood endodontist provides is our root canal therapy procedure. Root canal therapy is typically used to repair a tooth with an infected pulp. Each of your teeth has a collection of soft tissue at its center that is referred to as its pulp. If your tooth is decayed, cracked, chipped, or damaged in some other way, then the pulp is at risk of exposure to any bacteria or other harmful substances present in your mouth at any time. This can cause infections that are painful and that cause further damage to your teeth. Some signs you may have such an infection include: moderate to severe pain in one particular tooth, greater sensitivity to especially hot and cold temperatures in that tooth, a gradual darkening or discoloration of the tooth, or any other changes that are out of the ordinary. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important that you schedule an appointment with our Midwood endodontist as soon as possible. During your appointment, Dr. Feinburg will determine if you are in need of a root canal therapy procedure. During root canal therapy, Dr. Feinburg will remove the infected pulp. Next, we will carefully clean the area in order to remove any excess bacteria. Finally, our Midwood endodontist will seal up the tooth so that it is not at risk of future infection.
