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.
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.

Patient Review By Melanie H
From someone who is very afraid of dental procedures, I could not have had a better experience. Dr. Zohn was just amazing. I had a PAIN-FREE root canal. Dr. Zohn and his assistant Shirley were so kind and empathetic. The procedure was done in one hour and was easier than I ever expected. Dr. Zohn is a kind, empathetic man. He put my mind and anxiety at ease right away. If you need a root canal, Dr. Zohn is your guy!!

Patient Review By Elizabeth C
I am the biggest baby when it comes to any kind of dentistry, but I was in horrible shape and needed a root canal badly. I had let it go for so long due to COVID-19, by the time I got to Dr. Apolito, my tooth was in very bad shape and I was in an extreme amount of pain. That is not even to mention my nerves, which were through the roof. The woman at the reception desk was so kind and understanding. Dr. Apolito immediately made me feel very at ease with his friendly, caring way. He talked about his family and all the current events going on. He explained everything to me that he was doing and kept asking me if I was ok. I knew I was in good hands from the start. Then before you know it, the procedure was completed and I could leave. I'm sorry, but I hate the dentist; however, for any future problems I may have, I will not hesitate to come to Dr. Apolito at Advanced Endodontic Associates. Thank you Dr. Apolito, for taking such good care of me!!!

Patient Review By Breanna R
I was originally scheduled for a root canal on July 6. I started experiencing a lot of pain in the area and they allowed me to come in the same week when I called and asked to be seen earlier. I was beyond grateful, then Dr. Apolito completed the root canal in one sitting for me so I didn’t have to come back. I’m trying to get cleared to see an orthodontist so I appreciate not having to prolong this process. The doctor and assistant were very polite and efficient during the operation. Office is very clean as well !

Patient Review By Vlora G

Patient Review By Anthony F
I was referred to Advanced Endodontics by my dentist with a card stating which tooth that may need a root canal. I was introduced to a sagacious individual , Dr Zohn, who performed his own investigative work to get to the root of the problem, no pun intended. Due diligence by this master proved to be quite beneficial for me. I walked in with a tremendous amount of pain and walked out pain free with a smile. Dr Zohn verbally walked me through and explained the procedure as it went on. My experience was completely pain free and I very highly recommend Dr Zohn and Advanced Endodontics to all who might have any fears of a root canal , such as I did. Anthony Fischer

This was the best dental experience I ever had! Dr. Apolito and his assistants were so professional and extremely friendly. It was truly painless and enjoyable. I never thought I would say a dentist visit was enjoyable but it was. The ladies in the office were so friendly and very informative.

Patient Review By Al D
Actually two visits with two different doctors but review is same for both....excellent. I was in a great deal of pain. The office was extremely understanding and helpful in getting me in for emergency appointments despite the Covid crisis. The online paperwork, entry process, and safety steps taken made me comfortable I would not leave with anything I didn't go in with. Communication was great before, during and after the procedures. Can sleep and eat again.

Patient Review By Beth J
I was so scared of having to have a root canal. The experience from the first phone call thru the procedure was "painless". Even during this trying time the professional nurses, receptionist and doctor were wonderful. The unknown of how the procedure would be was far worse than the procedure. Dr. Zohn was wonderful from the first shot thru. I would highly recommend this practice. All the reviews of top dentist in New Jersey are TRUE!

Patient Review By Jay M
As a local dentist I’ve been referring to this group for years. My patients were always happy and I’ve always been happy with the clinical results. One day I found myself in need of a root canal for a painful tooth. Dr Apolito got me in right away and took great care of me. His skills & expertise are exceptional. I was totally as ease as the root canal was done and have been pain free ever since.

for a dreaded procedure, root canal, the office and the doctor, made the experience painless except for the first Novocaine shot. The doctor explained that there would be a bit of pain at first so I knew what to expect. The doctor and the assistant were both patient and kind. I would highly recommend this office!

Patient Review By Stephanie Guglielmo
I never had a root canal and was quite worried. It was more of an emergency because I had extreme pain and swelling. I was referred by my dentist. Dr. Ostrometskaya was very comforting and asked how I was doing throughout the procedure. No one wants a root canal, but the process was as pleasant as it could be. There was never any pain.
- Stephanie Guglielmo
Patient Review By Kevin N

Patient Review By John G
The treatment I received far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Zohn carefully explained the procedure he was going to perform and was very mindful of my comfort level. The office staff and the professional staff were equally attentive, courteous and caring. Post-procedure instructions were carefully explained and a follow-up call was made to ask about my condition. Dental appointments aren't fun but Dr. Zohn and his staff made mine as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
- John G
Patient Review By Kathleen M
My dentist had referred me to Advanced Endodontic Assoc., PA for a root canal. The office staff team members Barbara and Sueanne were empathetic, and had expedited the scheduling of my appointment. I was most fortunate to have been placed in Dr. Apolito’s schedule; he cared about my pain level when I arrived, was quite respectful, and responded to my concerns both during and after my visit. Due to some ongoing pain, I had to come back into the office and was taken ASAP. Dr. Apolito welcomed me back, gave me a lot of his time without any hesitation, and had addressed what seemed to be the source of the pain. After this visit I have been happy to report that I am pain free! Dr. Apolito is not only excellent at what he does, but he also has a wonderful "bedside manner". I had such an overall positive experience; I know you will too!
