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.

Dentures are removable devices that replace missing teeth. If you have lost teeth through decay, gum disease, or through an accident or injury, you may want to ask a dentist, like those at Brooklyn Dental Group, how dentures will improve your appearance and your health. When you visit your Flatbush Avenue denture specialist, Dr. Martin Bodek, you will be in the hands of an experienced professional who has been serving the dental needs of the Flatbush community and its surrounding areas for over 20 years. Dr. Bodek will help you to decide if dentures are the right choice for you.

The two types of dentures are complete and partial. Complete dentures can be “conventional,” or placed in the mouth after several weeks when your gum tissue has healed, or they can also be “immediate.” This means they are placed in the mouth right after your natural teeth have been removed. The disadvantage to the “immediate” dentures is that as the gums are healing, they require more adjustments to fit properly in your mouth.

There are also bridges that are often referred to as fixed partial dentures. They, like dentures, are considered to be artificial replacement teeth. Bridges fill in the spaces between the natural teeth and are bonded to existing teeth or implants and prevent other teeth from changing position.

Dr. Martin Bodek, your Flatbush Avenue dentist, can discuss with you the pros and cons of dentures and how you will adjust to them. You may want to know if they will be difficult to wear or if you will have problems eating or speaking. Dr. Bodek will be able to evaluate your suitability for dentures based on a comprehensive exam and answer all of your questions and concerns. His goal is for you to be comfortable and satisfied with the choice you make.

Technological advances in dentistry have made dentures more natural looking and comfortable than in the past. Dr. Bodek will partner with you so that your dentures are handcrafted to your specific needs and appearance. The final result will be a natural smile you have always wanted. Call your Flatbush Avenue dentist, Dr. Martin Bodek, for a consultation. Dr. Bodek accepts most dental plans and his hours are flexible and convenient.
