Have a Dental Emergency? Go to an Endodontist First, Not Emergency Room or Urgent Care

With hospitals and emergency rooms overloaded, endodontist offices remain open for dental emergencies for those suffering from extreme tooth pain or other oral health related emergencies such as those that might require root canal treatment.
During the constantly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals and emergency rooms are experiencing extreme surges of patients seeking urgent care, leading to longer wait times for patients in need, shortages of medicine and equipment and clinician and staff overload.
To help reduce the number of ER and Urgent Care admitted patients, it’s important that patients contact an endodontist office first for all dental-related emergencies. If you are experiencing severe dental pain, dental infection symptoms (e.g. bleeding, swelling) or a dental infection-related fever, please contact your endodontist immediately at Ocean Township Office Phone Number 732-531-9200.
Endodontists are tooth pain and root canal treatment specialists trained in diagnosing and treating tooth pain. They consider their role during this crisis to alleviate tooth pain, manage oral infections and reduce the need for patients to seek emergency dental care at ERs and Urgent Care facilities.
Please refer to the following for more information:

Root Canal Treatment in Ocean Township Township, Freehold & Middletown NJ

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. For more information on root canal treatment, please visit our root canal page.

Root Canal Surgery in Ocean Township Township, Freehold & Middletown NJ

Root canal surgery is used in cases where conventional root canals are not possible (calcified canals) or may have failed (become infected). In this procedure the endodontist makes an opening in the gum tissue and removes the infected tissue and the end of the root. A seal is placed at the end of the root to prevent further infection. The material used is MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate), which is a state of the art material that is far superior to previous materials used for this type of procedure. With the infected tissue removed and MTA seal placed, the bone is replaced naturally by the body over the course of a few months.

Ellen and Sue were very accommodating and courteous, despite the busy schedule. Dr. Yelena did a great job on the root canal while keeping it stress free. The hygienist was very patient and calming. Overall a great experience

Patient Review By jeffrey s

I have hated the dentist since i was a child....57 now and still feel the same way. I recently had my second root canal at this practice. All I can say is wow. Clean, professional, caring and painless. If you are putting off a visit out of fear come to this practice they are great and you won't regret it.

Patient Review By Paul S

Dr. Pellicano was very attentive and very informative during my root canal treatment. He walked me thru the whole process, scans root canal and filling my tooth with a temporary filling. His staff was outstanding before during and after the procedure. I highly recommend Dr Pellicano for a root canal procedure. Thank you again.

Patient Review By Joette D

I was referred to Dr. Ira Zohn by my dentist. Dr. Zohn was thorough, patient, kind, and informative . He examined my teeth and after considering and discussing each possibility, he advised me to wait and not to have the root canal at the present time. He is a gentleman and a true professional. I appreciate his honesty and care. I will definitely be going back when necessary. My heartfelt thanks to Dr. Zohn and his staff. This office is extraordinary!

Patient Review By Ellen G

I was very nervous coming into the office for my procedure. I had only had one other root canal, and it was a complete disaster (done by another doctor). The staff was very warm and friendly and explained everything prior to it happening. Dr. Apolito walked into the room and immediately put me at ease. It was clear he had done a few of these, and told me exactly what to expect and what I would feel. He was on point! Once the Novocain took effect, I felt nothing! As much of a mess as the first root canal was, that was as good as this one was. I was slightly sore for a few hours, and then it was like it had never been done. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Apolito and his staff to anyone and everyone!

Patient Review By Laura C

Wonderful experience! I was a nervous wreck for my first root canal! Dr Ostrometskaya was amazing! From the front desk, to the office manager (my friend Doreen!), to the Dr and her assistant Chelsea, every one was beyond nice and very reassuring that it would be quick and painless! I was so surprised at how quickly it was done (about 15 minutes)! I would highly recommend anyone needing an Endodontist to go here!

Patient Review By Brooke K

Due to a situation at my regular dentist during a root canal, a piece of the "pin" for lack of terminology, was stuck in my root. Also, this was the third time he was trying to do the root canal and clearly he was not the man for the job. My dentist called for me being it was an emergency and right away I was in. I drove to the Ocean office and the office staff kindly greeted me and helped with my insurance information. It was not long that I was seen even though I did not have an appointment and was being seen as an emergency case. The lovely dental assistant (please forgive me I do not remember her name, I was a little stressed out) took the time to listen to me and was even able to reassure me I was now in good hands. She used a special scanner to see what was going on with this tooth and knew right away what had happened. Dr. Ostrometskaya then came in and realized I was upset and nervous and took the time to reassure me that this is what they do. Root canals. And darn were they good. They got right to business. The numbing worked (at my dental office he had tried this procedure theee times and each time he was unable to numb me all the way and yikes did that hurt beyond belief). But not here. I was probably numbed and material was used to specifically home in on the one tooth. The Dr. set to work and she emulated poise, confidence, and knowledge of what needed to be done. And she did it. And I was not in pain! The office even provided a print out for after care and a follow up appointment must occur due to the nature of the tooth and they even accommodated me as my insurance is running out this month. What a team. What a fantastic experience. So professional and yet compassionate. I am so happy my dentist called and I was able to experience the first time since this disaster of a procedure started a feeling that all will be well with this tooth. Thank you to Dr. Ostrometskaya team. I so appreciate it!!!!

Patient Review By Cheryl C

I have to say I was extremely impressed with Dr. Antonett Thai & her assistant Lauren! Lauren & I enjoyed some laughs together before Dr. Thai came in which really put me at ease. I went to the office for a scan & ended up having a root canal that very same day. It was so smooth & Dr. Thai was so caring, considerate, & gentle. The 2 of them worked together so efficiently & proficiently I was very impressed! And it was totally painless! Even the next day I didn't need Tylenol! I can't recommend Dr. Thai highly enough & if I ever need any other work done I'll definitely go back to her!

Patient Review By Dave B

I had an hot tooth that needed a root canal and I couldn't get an appointment with my Endodontist but she recommended Advanced. I was leaving in on vacation in 2 days and Advanced fit me in the same day. I arrived on time and was seen right away. Tina the dental tech was great, as was Dr. Apolito. They answered all my questions, showed me the x-rays and explained what they would be doing. The procedure was quick and painless - I was in and out in 50 minutes. The staff are all friendly and helpful and I highly recommend Advanced Endodontics to anyone who needs and Endodontist.

Patient Review By Isabella B

I saw Dr. Apolito twice for re-treatment procedures, once in 2017 and again on May 24, 2021. Dr. Apolito and his assistants worked well together and demonstrated professionalism, while being friendly and considerate. The woman at the reception desk were also friendly and kind, especially Sue. Many thanks to Dr. Apolito and his staff. Best regards.

Patient Review By Anthony D

Absolutely painless dentistry is what you'll find from this office and their amazing staff. My tooth had just broke the day before and they got me within hours with the help of Doreen! Jess and Christine greeted me and were able to answer any of my questions with ease. Dr. Apolito and Shirley eased my anxiety and completed the root canal - pain free! I can go into my weekend without concern for my tooth becoming a problem. Thank you again!

Patient Review By Robert B

Like most patients I was a bit nervous coming into the office for revision of a root canal. But from the initial phone call to the moment I arrived I was greeted and assisted by a very professional and courteous staff which put me at ease. Christine was very helpful and patient with me when filling out my paper work /history. Dental Assistant Kelly made me comfortable and put me at ease. The minute Dr. Zohn came into the treatment room I knew I was in good hands; Not only is he competent but you can tell he really cares about the patient; he made sure I was comfortable and in no pain. I sense that Dr. Zohn and his staff not only care about you while you are in the office but also afterwards, and want you to return to your life feeling well. I can highly recommend Advanced Endodontics; They are the best!

Patient Review By Louis N

root canal are the two scariest words you can hear, but not here. I was in servere pain that keep moving around top and bottom front to back. Dr Zohn was able to not only pin point which tooth was causing the problem but why it was causing the problem. Using his computer added microscope, he found that the area over the nerve had multiple small fractures. He very effiecently completed the root canal in one visit. I felt zero pain during and after the proceedure. I did not tell Dr Zohn or his staff that I have a very sensitive gag reflex. They complete the proceedure without gagging me once. this was very remarkable considering they were working on a second molar. Dr Zohn and his team are very special. I gladly give them my highest recommendation.

Overall, i had an excellent visit with Dr. Thai and her staff. I was impressed with their professionalism and efficiency, and quickly recognized that this is a team that takes, to borrow the term "Do what they do" to the next level. They were very friendly and put me at ease the whole time I was there. I would recommend your dentistry, to my friends and Co-workers. Thank you again.

Patient Review By LISA C

My root canal was at the Freehold office. Christa, who would be assisting, couldn’t have been more pleasant or reassuring that I would be receiving the best care. I almost looked forward to the procedure after we spoke! Dr. Thai is nothing short of exceptional. There aren’t enough Review Stars here or words to describe how incredibly calming and professional she is. Her expertise showed each and every minute that I was in the chair. The entire appointment exceeded my expectations from start to finish. I’d recommend Dr Thai in a heartbeat.
