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 Miriam W
I'm an adult with health related anxiety. The fear i was feeling before walking into the office was enormous, but after my first consultation i walked out 50 percent more calmer. They put all my fears at ease. Even though i walked into the day of the procedure with still a lot of nerves I walked out of the procedure and I was like that was amazing! There was a huge smile on my face! The doctors were so attentive to my fears and made sure the procedure was painless and quick! Advanced Endodontics you restored my faith in dental procedures and made me into a new stronger woman! So thank you so much for fixing my tooth in the most pleasurable way possible! If I could've given 10 stars I would've. No one asked me to write this I'm writing because I want everyone with fears to know there is nothing to fear at advanced Endodontics. Every single staff member treats you with amazing care!!

Patient Review By Sherry G
I sincerely appreciated dealing with a pleasant, efficient and warm office staff. The first impression one gets about a practice is the way they are treated on the phone. I was very nervous about the procedure and I felt much better after making the appointment. Dr. Apolito is terrific! I read his background on the web site and was very impressed with his bio. I'm sure there are many other dentists with his skills but not his personality. As soon as I met him I felt relaxed and confident. His assistant, Shirley, was wonderful. She has a calming and soothing presence. The only problem was trying not to laugh at their funny stories. I would recommend this office to friends and family!

Patient Review By Robyn O
Leanna (assistant) was friendly and knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Sue (front desk) was very pleasant. Dr Apolito was amiable and a good practitioner. Considering having a root canal would be one of the last things I would choose to do, and the fact I am a nurse and a bad patient, the procedure was almost painless. Obviously they do this everyday and are skilled and efficient in a clean, comfortable environment. I would recommend the office and Dr Apolito.

Patient Review By Rose A
I was in Extreme gum pain. My husband insisted that Dr. Ira Zohn was the only endodontist he will trust with my care. He was entirely right. We were told to meet at Dr. Zohn's Ocean office which was comfortable, state-of-the-art equipped, very clean & professionally run by a beautifully trained staff. I found that Dr. Zohn's education & experience makes him so efficient that 30 minutes later I had a pain free, new root canal. As if those benefits were not enough, Dr. Ira Zohn's truly caring manner insures that I will return for my family's endodontic care & recomend often the amazing team at Advanced Endodontic Associates.

Patient Review By Gina G
For this nervous patient, the experience was refreshing. The staff was wonderful, including Barbara at the desk and Tina the assistant who held my hand until Dr. Zohn needed her assistance to so competently take care of me. Thank you Dr. Zohn for making me feel so comfortable when my past experiences with root canals left me with completely traumatic experiences.
