The mouth can be a sensitive place so it becomes incredibly important that we take the best care of our oral health as possible. Good oral health helps our overall health, which is why brushing, flossing, using a mouth rinse and visiting a dentist regularly for checkups and routine cleanings is so important. But those are not the only reasons to visit your dentist. If you experience any sudden symptoms, pain or discomfort, then you should schedule an appointment with your dentist right away, especially if this occurs after a particular procedure. If you feel any discomfort or pain following a root canal therapy or endodontic retreatment, then schedule an appointment with our Midwood Brooklyn oral surgeon, Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC, right away.

If you experience the symptoms that preceded your root canal therapy or endodontic retreatment, then you may still be experiencing an infection or inflammation at the site of surgery. Sometimes, these surgical procedures do not take and may not completely stop the spreading of the infection or inflammation that required the surgery in the first place. In the event that this occurs, then you may need an apicoectomy. If you experience this discomfort following root canal therapy or endodontic retreatment, then schedule an appointment with our Midwood Brooklyn oral surgeon as soon as possible. Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC will see you as soon as he can and perform the apicoectomy. An apicoectomy is also known as root end resection surgery, and is intended to remove areas of infection from the root tip and surrounding tissue of the area in question. The damaged tissue is removed along with the tip of the root. Dr. Hertz will then fill the cavity made by this removal to prevent further re-infection and suture the gums where the incision was made.

You may experience some discomfort following the procedure but the bone will take a few months before it heals fully and naturally around the root and restore full function to the tooth. Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC will prescribe you a pain medication as needed to deal with any discomfort following the procedure, but your mouth should now be infection free and pain free. Visit our Midwood Brooklyn oral surgeon and alleviate your pain today.

Are you experiencing oral pain after having already received a course of root canal therapy? Root canal infections vary from patient to patient, and can differ in severity and location. These means that each case is unique unto itself, and when left in the hands of a general dentist these treatments can unfortunately go awry more often than we would like to think. If you are experiencing symptoms of a root canal infection despite having already been treated for one, don’t go back to the same office who has already made this mistake once. Instead, visit the local experts at the Bergen Beach oral surgeon practice of Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC to find out how an apicoectomy can return your smile to a picture of perfect health.

Root canal therapy is a treatment used by many dentists to effectively eradicate the bacteria and infected matter associated with a complete infection of the inside of one or more of your teeth. However, these treatments do not always go as expected. If you have received root canal therapy from a general dentist, this is often the cause of a procedure which has not been properly planned. At your trusted Bergen Beach oral surgeon we begin our apicoectomy in the same manner of which we begin our root canal therapies, through the use of digital x-rays which can capture highly detailed images that are far more effective and much safer than traditional x-ray technology. In doing so our doctors work to capture images of the infected area that can give us a perfect image of the exact scope of your oral infection, which insures that we eradicate every last trace of bacteria.

Also known as a root end surgery, and apicoectomy succeeds where root canal therapy fails. Regardless of the reason for your first procedure becoming complicated, a root end surgery works by your professional Bergen Beach oral surgeon making a small incision into the gum lines to expose and remove the damaged tissue. This also involves removing the roots of your tooth, which become infected as the bacteria spreads. The infected matter is then replaced with a root-end filling that works to secure the remaining natural structures of your tooth, and works to fend off infection, as synthetic matter cannot become infected. Over the next few months our team at the offices of Marc B. Hertz DDS, PC will oversee your healing process to insure the bone of your jaws heals around the new filling for a perfect fit and a tight bond that will allow your smile to return to normal function. Dr. Hertz can assist you from planning to aftercare with state of the art techniques and even proper medications to manage your healing to restore your smile to a picture of perfect health.

Brooklyn Apicoectomies

Brooklyn Apicoectomies

Our teeth are held in place by roots that extend into our jawbone. These roots are connected to nerves and tissue, some of our teeth even have multiple roots. Untreated cavities can lead to root canals, which can lead to an infection that attacks these tooth roots, causing oral pain and discomfort. Apicoectomies are the process of removing the infected tissue and root tips from the oral cavity, sealing the root and preventing further infections. Apicoectomies are a microsurgical procedure that Dr. Marc B. Hertz, trusted Brooklyn oral surgeon, has performed many times with great success.

When dealing with post root canal infections and surgeries, it is most important to consult with an talented oral and maxillofacial surgeon, like Dr. Hertz who has experience in performing endodontic surgery. Often, the source of the oral pain is at the apex of the root, which needs to be extracted from the infected area so that the tooth can be re-filled. This is why it is called microsurgery, because the whole tooth doesn’t need to be extracted. If you are in need of a Brooklyn Apicoectomy, it can be arranged with Marc B Hertz DDS, open five days a week for consultations and appointments.
