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.

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.

Endodontic Presentation

tooth after endodontic treatmentWhat 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 Michael L

Able to accommodate me for an emergency root canal, the staff was pleasant and helpful. Dr. Apolito was excellent and worked smoothly and efficiently. I was in some of the worst pain I've ever had going in, now 24 hours later it's been reduced to minor discomfort and will improve as it heals. I cannot thank every there enough. I'll see you in a month! 🙂

Patient Review By Jeff L

I was in a lot of pain and needed a root canal as per my dentist. The group he referred me to couldn't see me for 2 weeks but said a cancellation should open an appointment sooner. I searched Yelp, saw the reviews for Advanced Endodontics and decided to call. The office staff was great, they squeezed me in 3 hours after my call as long as I was willing to wait. I arrived an hour before the scheduled time and was taken in about 10 minutes later. 10 minutes after that Dr. Apolito was in the room prepping me for the procedure. He was attentive to my pain level, once I was numbed there was none, throughout the procedure. The tooth was cracked and he warned me that it could break, fortunately it didn't. Today, the day after the procedure I feel great, no residual discomfort. Looking forward to a successful follow up visit to complete the procedure. Highly recommend!

Patient Review By Mary R

This was the second root canal that I needed at this office. I chose Dr. Thai because of her expertise, putting me at ease, and wonderful attitudes of everyone in the office. I had no pain during the procedure and there was great conversation, laughter, and fun, and yet very professional as well. I was very nervous but everyone made me feel very comfortable and I forgot about my nerves very quickly. If you need a root canal, this is the place to go. The Doctor and Staff are exceptional! Thank you to everyone in the office who made me feel at ease. And thank you again Dr. Thai.
