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.

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.

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.
