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.

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.

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.

Patient Review By matthew b

I had to have two emergency root canals done because I broke my two front teeth in half. Within 2 hours of visiting my regular dentist, who referred me to this specialist office because I have unordinary wide roots in my teeth, I was on the chair having my teeth operated on. There's more to it though. There's a chance that one of my broken teeth is not salvageable, and Dr. Thai was very honest about this. She recommended that my parents and I really think about this decision, as there is a large cost factor involved. The honesty made me feel very comfortable with her. Although this is her business, she did not care just about the money; she was extremely informative, and performed the duty of a doctor perfectly. Everyone in the office showed me a lot of compassion about my injury, and the lady at the front desk was even patient with my mom (she asked a lot of questions about insurance). The procedure was done perfectly (my amateur eyes saw two perfectly filled root canals, which is important I think) and it was painless (they numbed the hell out of my teeth). Although I am unaware of if my tooth remains salvageable, (this is dependent on the crown procedure I will have done somewhere else), everything I needed was taken care of here, and it was done very well. I highly recommend this place if you have the means to come.

Patient Review By Peter K

I had a root canal performed by Doctor Ostrometskaya and from my first phone call to Advanced Endodontic until the end of the procedure everything was done in a highly professional manner. The office staff was courteous and very helpful in helping me along with the website forms and sorting out an issue with my insurance. Dr. O and her assistant could not have been any nicer in making feel comfortable and explaining the procedure as they went along. They would stop periodically to make sure I was okay before moving on. For something as unpleasant as a root canal, everyone made the experience as pleasant as they could. I would highly recommend this group.
