11210 Root Canal Therapy

Have you ever had a root canal treatment? Our Flatbush Avenue dentist from Brooklyn Dental Group provides patients with root canal therapy quite often. Some patients are concerned about getting root canal therapy on an anterior tooth because they do not want the dental work to appear obvious or unsightly. If you choose our Flatbush Avenue dentist, you will not need to be concerned about the aesthetics of your root canal treatment, or the quality of the treatment. We are experts in the field and will both relieve your symptoms and repair the structure of your tooth using our experience and expertise.

First, it is useful to recall why root canal therapy is necessary in the first place. The main reason that our Flatbush Avenue dentist uses root canal therapy as a treatment option is if there is a tooth that has become infected. At the center of each tooth, there is a grouping of soft tissue called the pulp. If the tooth’s enamel is worn away as a result of decay, this area of tissue can be freely exposed to the bacteria in your mouth, eventually leading to an infection of the tooth. If you have an infected tooth, you are likely to experience symptoms such as tooth ache, increased tooth sensitivity, pain while biting down, and tooth discoloration. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should visit our Flatbush Avenue dentist so that we can evaluate you them and let you know if root canal therapy is necessary.

Whether it is an anterior tooth or not, the procedure for root canal therapy is quite similar. The main goals are to remove the infected pulp, clear away the built up bacteria, and restore the tooth back to its natural appearance and functionality. In some cases, this requires the use of a dental crown or dental filling. Both of these options can be color matched and shaped to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Our Flatbush Avenue dentist can let you know which specific treatment options will work best for you during your next visit to Brooklyn Dental Group. We look forward to working with you in the near future.

Transform Your Smile with Veneers at Brooklyn Dental Group

Transform your smile with the high-quality dental care at Dr. Martin Bodek’s office! The dental professionals at Brooklyn Dental Group have delivered top-quality dental results to all their patients in Brooklyn for over 23 years. In their comfortable and convenient office, you can get the smile of your dreams with dental veneers.

Veneers are a virtually instant method of transforming your smile and are often the treatment of choice for celebrity smile makeovers.  They are ultra thin ceramic shells that are individually crafted for each tooth and bonded to their front surface to become a part of your natural tooth. Veneers are often used to change the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth to create a perfect smile that you can be proud of.

There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.

Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, have revolutionized cosmetic dentistry. These very thin shells of porcelain, which are bonded onto the front side of your teeth, are a great cosmetic dentistry solution for teeth that are chipped, stained, or slightly misaligned.

An impression of the tooth must be made and a veneer molded by a lab technician. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible. The process involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process.
