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.

 

 

 

 

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.

For this nervous patient, the experience was refreshing. The staff was wonderful, including Barbara at the desk and Tina the assistant who held my hand until Dr. Zohn needed her assistance to so competently take care of me. Thank you Dr. Zohn for making me feel so comfortable when my past experiences with root canals left me with completely traumatic experiences.

I found out I needed a root canal shortly before a month long overseas trip. Trisha, Dr. Ostrometskaya, an Jenilda were wonderful! They scheduled me quickly so I would be able to have the procedure and get a temporary crown before I left. This being my first root canal, I had many questions. They addressed all my concerns in a patient, caring manner, alleviating my stress. I'm VERY grateful and would highly recommend this team! Thank you ladies!

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience and would highly recommend this practice! This was my first root canal and I was extremely nervous and have heard various horror stories about the procedure. The Doctor and the entire staff made me feel comfortable from the moment I stepped into the office. The staff is all very knowledgeable and friendly and guided me every step of the way. The Doctor and all of the staff members made the entire procedure so painless and I couldn't be happier with my end result. I never thought a root canal could be anything but a nightmare, but this practice made the experience as pleasant as possible. They even catered to me TMJ during the procedure to ensure I was always 100% comfortable and checked on me constantly to ensure I felt no pain and was doing well. I can't say enough about this practice and highly highly recommend them!
