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.
Have Questions About Non-Surgical Root Canal? Call or Make an Appointment Today!
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.
To provide you with a better understanding of endodontic therapy, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to root canals are discussed.
What happens after treatment?
When your root canal therapy has 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.

As a new patient, my root canal experience with Dr. Pellicano, Ellen (Asst) and the rest of the staff that day was wonderful. From the moment I called and then entered the office, the receptionist was friendly and efficient . Ellen and Dr. Pellicano were not only professional, but made the entire procedure as comfortable as possible. I will absolutely come back to Dr. Pellicano if another root canal is needed!! Thank you and highly recommend Dr. Pellicano!

Patient Review By Brian H
Dr. Zohn was amazing, it was a painless root canal yesterday, with no pain last night or today! One nice change of pace for me was that he explained what was happening throughout the procedure. The new technology really allows for a relaxed session. Thanks Dr. Zohn!

This was by far the best experience at an endodontist (even if it is not something that one looks forward to). Dr. Pellicano and his staff were exceptional. I thank all of them for being so kind, efficient, caring, and just all around excellent at what they do. Dr. Pellicano, I cannot thank you enough!

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.

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.

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!!!!!

From the moment I called. I was greeted with care and concern for what my medical need was. Doreen was extremely helpful, and answered all my questions and scheduled an appointment immediately that day with Dr. IRA Zohn. Pam conducted the x-rays with ease. From the moment Dr Zohn came in to the room, he assured me everything would be pain free and I would be okay. God Bless You Dr Zohn. You are the BEST!!! Endodontist I have ever received treatment from. Your kind words and thorough explanation step by step gave me comfort in handling the surgery. I Highly recommend Advanced Endodontic Associates, PA.

Patient Review By Maryanne K
Dr. Pellicano was terrific. He is a gentle, caring professional, who took the time to explain the procedure. I would recommend him highly. The reception people were very kind as well. My only issue is that when I checked out, I was informed that I had a balance from a prior procedure of $175. This was an unsuccessful root canal. I am not blaming anyone for that, but given the circumstances, I believe that it would have been an issue of good will to have forgiven that balance.

Patient Review By Lorraine B

Patient Review By Ketav S
I had lot of pain in my tooth.I took an emergency appointment for Dr. Apolito and saw him.He took a X-ray and did couple of checks on my tooth and told me that my tooth is still not that bad that I have to go for root canal. And he was sooooo right. My pain was due to the big cavity filling done the previous week. Doctor told me that I should give at least 3 weeks to become pain free. I want to thank doctor Apolito - because of his advice I did not get the root canal done and able to save my original tooth. I really appreciate him.In future if I ever have to go for root canal I will get that done with Dr. Apolito.

Patient Review By michael k
Dr Zohn and Shirley were excellent. Considering I was there for a root canal, it couldn't have gone better. I would recommend Dr Zohn to everyone. His engaging personality and his unique ability to make a patient feel comfort in a time of stress is unmatched. I have been going to dentists for 60 yrs and this was by far, my best experience,

Patient Review By Phyllis McCartin M
My procedure was an emergency arranged by my dentist. Everyone was especially pleasant and supportive. Although there was some difficulty getting me anesthetized the procedure went well. The follow up went much more smoothly and was much less painful. The restoration was completed and I feel great.

Patient Review By Debra Q
I was scheduled an appointment the same day I called due to pain. My dentist referred me to this office. They were very pleasant and wanted to make me comfortable as I went through it unpleasant procedure. Although I am in pain a day later it is to be expected. They took x-rays before during and after the root canal to make sure everything was done perfectly.

Patient Review By Susan B
Everyone was friendly and patient. The office is very clean. I was told what they were going to do before it was done. I like to be informed of the procedure. Hopefully I do not need another root canal but if I do, I would certainly go back to them.

Patient Review By Jennifer M
My experience with the office and Dr. Pellicano was first-rate. The communication with the office was excellent. They got me in quickly for a consult and I got all of my questions answered. When I went in for the procedure I felt well cared for. There was a question about what work should be done and Dr. Pellicano was patient with me and allowed me to make a choice. Lastly, the tech at the office is great!

Patient Review By Tom M
I felt it was necessary to post a review after my experience yesterday. My primary dentist had arranged for me to have an emergency visit to the Freehold office due to my constant pain that I was experiencing. The office staff at the desk were pleasant and accommodating. Thereafter I was fortunate to meet Dr. O. and her assistant Lauren. Following x-rays to include the 3d xray machine, together the two of them performed an emergency root canal. It was a tough procedure for me because it is difficult for me to breathe from my nose due to allergies. Several times throughout the procedure I needed to stop because of my breathing condition. In fact at one point I thought I was having an anxiety attack. Not once was Dr. O. or Lauren impatient with me knowing that my needing to stop the procedure several times only prolonged them from finishing. Instead they demonstrated comfort the entire time, repeatedly telling me that I was doing well and occasionally rubbing my arm to convince me. I must say that Lauren's bedside manner is beyond belief. She is truly an asset to your practice. The same for Dr. O. She was awesome! To think that I have never met either of them prior and for me to be treated in such a fashion was such a great feeling in a time of need. I thank both of them for their work and treating me the way they did. Amazing! Tom Manzo

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.
- Paul S
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.
