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.

Endodontic Presentation

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.

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.

Patient Review By Sandra B

Great experience! I called last Thursday after seeing my dentist who said I had an abscess and needed a root canal. I spoke with Amber who was wonderful and got me in that afternoon. Dr Zohn and Deanna were like a well oiled machine and I was out of there in about 90 minutes. And they were great to be around! Now 4 days later, the pain is almost 100% subsided. A big thanks to all!

Patient Review By Judith B

I was very nervous about having another root canal. My prior experience was based on the procedures I had done at the dental office that I had gone to for about 60 years. My last root canal had taken 2 days and I was physically exhausted from that experience as I had to travel over an hour each way for 2 days straight. I have since changed my dentist opting for one that is much closer to my residence. When he told me that I would need a root canal procedure, I was not happy. I asked him for a recommendation and was given a recommendation for this group. I scheduled my appointment in the Middletown office with Dr. Apolito. I was taken promptly and everyone from the receptionist to the surgical assistant to the doctor was extremely pleasant, respectful, and very courteous. I cannot find the words to fully express how thrilled I was with this appointment. I'm not saying that I love having a root canal, but Dr. Apolito was absolutely wonderful!! He constantly checked to see that I was ok as did his surgical assistant. I was totally done within an hour. I had not a single issue after the root pain, no swelling, absolutely nothing!!! I would most definitely recommend Dr. Apolito and the Middletown office if you need to get a root canal!!!! Should I ever need another one (I hope I don't have to), this is where I'm going without a doubt!

Patient Review By John D

Dr Zohn is the best! I was super nervous prior to my appt, and had never had a root canal before - so I didn’t know what to expect. From the moment I was taken to the room for the procedure, Dr Zohn explained exactly what was going to be done and updates you step by step during the entire procedure. I felt ZERO pain, even afterwards! For anyone looking for a recommendation on an endodontist, I highly recommend Dr Zohn and his team - 100%!

Patient Review By Helen M

When you are nervous about an appointment everyone you meet impacts your visit. The person at the front desk was warm and friendly. She had a smile that helped me to relax. The assistant was an upbeat fun person....and the doctor had a friendly, competent air about him. They each played a part in making my visit for a root canal better than I could imagine. On the way there my thought was, I can't wait to be coming home. And now, after it is all over, I know if I ever need another root canal it is the only place I would go. It was an experience I am happy to share. Thank you to the entire staff that I had the good fortune to meet!

Patient Review By Ken A

I Had a root canal done last Wednesday By Dr.Thai..I am extremely pleased with the whole process. Dr Thai was informative and nice to talk to.The office staff was great and they worked to schedule me in during a difficult time.. I almost left the office due to time constraints then changed my mind And Dr Thai re-suitted up to do the root canal..I am so happy that I had the procedure done then. It was an Absolutely Painless Procedure! Nobody enjoys a root canal but I can attest from former dental work i have had done in the past that this root canal was by far the best experience I've ever had. If you are in need of dental work check them out and you will be pleased with the outcome. Thanks again Dr. Thai and staff members. Ken A.

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!

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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,

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.
