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 Raymond B.
I was referred to this office by my regular dentist. I was greeted with professionalism and asked to fill in the routine paperwork. When I was escorted back to the 'chair' it was exactly on my appointed time and the staff took their time to establish a relationship, listen to my needs and complaints and put my mind at ease that I would be handle with the upmost care. Dr Thai was assigned to me and I found her professional, engaging and caring. She told me what she was doing, made sure I had absolutely no pain or discomfort and made me feel that she was doing the very best for me. I have had root canal's in the past and have always had problems with pain, infection, etc. Dr Thai took all steps to keep me from experiencing these issues and I am happy to report I had no pain or subsequent issues. I recommend her and the staff highly. I told my regular dentist, a friend of 30 yrs, that he could feel very confident in recommending the office but especially Dr. Thai. She has become my favorite dentist of all times!! Please don't tell my friend:)

Patient Review By christine M
Dr Zohn is a very gentle and caring doctor with "perfection" tendencies. My root canal procedure was totally painless; I could have taken a nap during the whole procedure. Upon completion he took several x-rays to check his work since my tooth was unusually shaped and I can say hands down after reviewing the x-ray and comments from the dentist that is performing the "cap", that his work is "perfect"! If you are someone that is intimidated by dentistry, like myself, Dr.Zohn is your Doctor! Far away? Its worth the commute as he will get you over your anxieties for good.

Patient Review By Jennifer F
Dr. Zohn is the best. I would never go to any other specialist, ever. My procedure was a little more difficult than most, but Dr. Zohn was able to do it with ease, and most importantly without any pain or discomfort on my part. Not only was he extremely satisfied with the job he did, but I was in complete amazement. The staff was also very kind and courteous, from reception to assistants and billing. Some people may be scared to death to get root canals or any other procedure done, but not me. I know that when I visit Dr. Zohn and his staff I am in the best hands. Thank you all so very much!

Patient Review By Josie C.
Since I was a kid, going to the dentist has always been scary. I was quite nervous today. Now post procedure I'm actually very good. I experienced zero pain - yup zero. Dr. Zohn is really nice. He made me feel confident and cared for. The team in the office is professional and personable. If I ever need Dr. Zohn's services again I won't be scared - I'll actually look forward to visiting. My sincere thanks to Dr. Zohn and the entire office!

I have had 7 successful pain free root canals performed at Advanced Endodontic Associates over the years. I would highly recommend their team for any Endodontic procedures. They are in fact the 'A' team.
Patient Review By Bertha w
Initially when I came into the office I was extremely apprehensive about the procedure even though I had been assured by a previous patient that the procedure was painless. Dr. Zohn was very patient and explained away my fears. He was very informative regarding my questions and made me aware of everything he was doing. My second visit was just as pleasant as the first. The assistant were knowledgeable and pleasant. The office staff is very polite and thoughtful. My overall experience. Is that I will recommend all my friends to this office. THANK YOU Bertha

Patient Review By Dan L.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Zohn and Advanced Endodontic Associates. I needed an emergency Root Canal procedure and they took me in 1 hour after my General Dentist called them. The entire procedure start to finish was simple. Dr. Zohn has an excellent staff that clearly takes pride in their work. Btw, it was entirely painless! Thanks Dr. Zohn.

Dr. Zohn is a wonderful doctor. This is my second root canal and I never have any pain when I leave his office. I always tell anyone who needs root canal to see him. Thank you doctor.

Patient Review By Douglas F.
When my family dentist said that I would need a root canal, both he and my periodontist recommended one man--Ira Zohn. In the old days, the term 'root canal' was synonymous with torture. I can assure you that a root canal by Dr. Zohn is completely painless. Should the need arise, you can do no better than to place your dental health in the skillful and experienced hands of Dr. Zohn. Incidentally, he also did my dentist's root canal some years ago. Don't take chances--go to the dentist's endodontist!

Patient Review By Elizabeth M.
I appreciate the kindly and professional expertise of Dr. Zohn. His work is top-notch, and he is wonderfully efficient while maintaining this high level of skill. A personable and gentle physician, he explains the dental procedure step by step as he works, helping you as the patient feel at ease. The assistants are attentive and helpful, as well, and i appreciate that one "stands guard" at your side during parts of the procedure that involve waiting. Thank you for your excellent help!
