Have a Dental Emergency? Go to an Endodontist First, Not the 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.

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 the MTA seal placed, the bone is replaced naturally by the body over the course of a few months. For more information on root canal surgery, please visit our root canal surgery page.

Patient Review By Kim D

I have severe anxiety and problems getting numb at most places. They were awesome here. I had to have 2 root canals done at separate times. Both times they made me feel comfortable and did a great job.

Patient Review By Carlos Q

Leaving to Europe I fractured my molar 2 days before leaving and was in pain. Call them in the morning and they were able to accommodate me the same day. The staff, dental assistants were all very friendly and courteous. Dr Ostrometskya was fantastic. She explained what she would be doing and kept checking to ensure I was not feeling any pain during the procedure. Thank You Advanced Endodontics Associates.

Patient Review By Rhonda K

We just left Dr. Ira Zohn‘s office…there is no one like him. He is a fantastic doctor, gentle, kind, caring and has a heart of gold. He does an amazing job. My family and I have known Dr. Zohn for over 40 years. We are fortunate to have such a professional like Dr. Zohn in the Jersey Shore area. When anyone needs a root canal specialist I highly recommend Dr. Ira Zohn.

Patient Review By Kimberly P

Dr. Pellicano and his staff were amazing. Words cannot express how grateful I am for them. I have had a significant amount of dental work and this is by far the best experience I have had. Dr. Pellicano was so kind and understanding. He is truly an expert in his field and should I need any further help, he will be the only doctor I will see for future procedures. I highly recommend him. They all really care about their patients!

Patient Review By Nancy T

I was in need of a root canal. I was scared and nervous!!! Both Dr. Pellicano and and the dental assistant, I forget her name, we’re FABULOUS!! Dr. Pellicano fully explained everything that he was going to do prior to beginning the procedure in addition to how long it would roughly take. The Dental Assistant was considerate and kept asking during the procedure if I was ok. When the procedure was complete, Dr. Pellicano showed me on the X-rays exactly what he did, what the after care would be and how to proceed with my general Dentist to finalize treatment. Upon checking out, the receptionist was also very helpful as far as asking for insurance information and explaining the process. I am more than happy with the Advanced Endodontic group!!!! Thank you to the entire staff for making this scary situation easier for me. I will be sure to keep you on “speed dial” and refer this group to friends and family!!!!!

I called on a Friday morning in a lot of pain and was told to come right in - no waiting at all! Everyone was super nice and explained everything to me, from billing to the procedure to post treatment instructions. I experienced zero pain at all during the procedure. Highly recommend Dr. Apolito and this practice!

The front desk girls Jessica and Christine were amazing at the front desk. They got me right into the schedule with Dr. Apolito. This was my first root canal so I was a bit nervous , however Kelly and Sherly eased my anxiety!!! Dr. Apolito was able to do the root canal all in one visit with no problem!!! He was very professional and personable. I highly recommend AEA.
