Root Canal Therapy

Endodontic Root Canals in Ocean Township, Freehold, & Middletown NJ

What is a root canal?


A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.

Please call one of our offices to schedule your root canal appointment with Advanced Endodontic Associates, PA:

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia if indicated. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.

tooth after endodontic treatmentWhat happens after treatment?

When your root canal therapyhas been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.

How much will it cost?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

Dr. Zohn is my hero! I had been complaining of pain and discomfort to my doctor and dentist for some time, and finally my hygienist referred me to Dr. Zohn. He got to the root of all my pain and discomfort, and relieved it with a root canal (no pun intended). Shockingly I would say my root canal was a very pleasant experience thanks to him. I would highly recommend Dr. Zohn at Advanced Endodontic Associates.

I have been impressed and pleased with how my son was treated and how caring everyone has been. My 8 year old, then 6, was very scared until he met dr. Zohn and his assistants. They did a wonderful job and as a parent, it meant the world to me to have him feel safe. This is how this office made him feel. Super excellent staff !!
