The endodontic specialists at the Midwood Brooklyn office of Dr. Michael Feinberg provide root canal therapy with a very high rate of success. Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way downward, until they reach the tip of the root. When our Midwood root canal specialists remove the diseased tissue, they can halt the spread of infection and restore the healthy portion of the tooth. In fact, root canal therapy with Dr. Feinberg in Midwood is designed to save a problem tooth, when before the only other alternative was extracting a diseased tooth.
The source of tooth pain involve infections that spread to the pulp, or the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. When a root canal infection worsens, it can begin to affect the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems. A diseased inner tooth has many symptoms including pain and sensitivity. On the inside of your tooth, the spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess. The moment you start to experience pain indicative of a root canal infection, please visit Dr. Feinberg, your Midwood endodontist immediately.
Root canal therapy usually entails one to three visits to Dr. Michael Feinberg in Midwood, Brooklyn. During your visit, our root canal specialists will remove the diseased tissue, cleanse and disinfect the inner chamber and reshape the tiny canals. The cleaned chamber and canals will be filled with an elastic material and medication designed to prevent re-infection. If necessary, the drilled hole will be temporarily filled until a permanent seal is made with a dental crown. Want to know more about root canal therapy? Come speak to Dr. Feinberg today!
