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 therapyhas 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 Kimberly S
Today I was evaluated by Dr. Zohn for a possible root canal. After an X-ray and a very thorough exam of two upper teeth, Dr Zohn determined that I was in need of a root canal. My first root canal ever. I made them aware that I was very needle phobic and had a history of fainting. Leanna, the dental assistant made sure that she had a cold towel and oxygen ready for me just in case. To my surprise, it was the most relaxing, painless dental procedure that I've ever had in my life.It also helps that Dr. Zohn is the nicest man in the world. He even took the time to call me this evening to see how I was feeling. I absolutely, 100% recommend Dr. Zohn. He is a modest man with a quiet confidence about himself that makes you feel at ease.I would say that he's a true gem in the dental field. Thank you for everything! I'm so happy to have been recommended to see you!
