Root canal dentist Dr. Zeeshan Salam - Carthage, NY

It all begins with your knowing the facts about the process. This will not only help you know about the process but will also build the much-needed confidence in you. The root canal process allows dentists to preserve the natural appearance of the tooth better than other alternatives. Why? It’s less painful, incurs lesser expenses and preserves your teeth.

What is a root canal?

To answer this, let’s first know what’s inside a tooth. There is a space in our tooth which houses the soft tissues - 1. the pulp, 2. blood vessels, 3. nerves and 4. connective tissues. The treatment known as pulpectomy is the process of removal of damaged pulp from a tooth.

The process of root canal:

Now you know the process of pulpectomy, what happens when it damages? Dentists replace it with a rubber like substance. Below we have mentioned the entire process that will help you get a clear picture of the treatment procedure.

  • Removal of the damaged tissue
  • Filling of the tooth with an pulp-alternative, i.e., rubber like substance, and
  • Capping or sealing the tooth with either a filling or a crown.

Although during the developmental phase, soft tissue is necessary for the tooth, still it can survive without the pulp once fully matured as it’s supplied by the surrounding tissues.

The need for root canals

Dr. Salam will perform a root canal treatment if the soft tissues in your tooth is damaged, inflamed. This can happen in many ways and you can feel the discomfort, easily. Types of discomfort include -

  • Pain or throbbing when you bite
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold edibles

These are some of the most common signs that indicates you might need a root canal therapy. Now coming to the ailments it can cure includes:

  • A tooth on which multiple dental procedures have already been performed and is causing trouble
  • Previous injuries experienced in one way or the other
  • A tooth with a damaged crown
  • An extensive or deep cavity
  • A cracked or broken tooth

How we undertake the root canal therapy at Long falls Dentistry

As mentioned earlier, there was once a time when more and more people experienced anxiety and fear with the term itself. Moreover, with people pointing out that root canals can sometimes lead to infections, it became a challenge for us to offer the best at our Carthage NY dental office. Here is how Dr. Zeeshan Salam performs the root canal process.

  • The tooth is fully anesthetized. The type of sedation depends on your individual preferences and your condition - mostly the level of anxiety.
  • Following the application of an anaesthetic, a hole is created on top of the tooth reaching down to the level of the pulp
  • The pulp is removed using laser technology.
  • The next step includes thorough disinfection of the tooth.
  • The tooth is then filled with a pulp-alternative for preventing further infection.
  • The last step includes the sealing process. This can be done in many ways and mostly depends on the immediate condition after the above steps are completed.

Now we are sure that you have a general overview of the root canal treatment process. At Long Falls Dentistry, we will be more than happy to answer your questions and meet you in person for a consultation at our Carthage NY dental office. Dr. Salam will let you know of any alterations in the process, if required, for achieving the best solution suitable to you.

TSM Goat

I asked as a new patient if I can be seen and they had an appointment readily available for the same day. I finally found a dentistry that I feel comfortable with. I didn't have to wait long in the waiting room, and I was early. I'm a very anxious person when it comes to doctors. Upon entering the staff are very friendly and nice. Kris was the hygienist who cleaned my teeth and did my x-rays. I explained to her that I am very anxious and she made my visit much better. Dr. Zeeshan Salam came in and explained to me my possibilities to help fix my teeth and that he will talk with my insurance provider. Dr. Zeeshan Salam is very nice and upfront. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Very nice place, I highly recommend.


After years of being terrified of the dentist I came here and they were more than accomodating . Dr Salam is funny and caring and all of the nurses n hygienist were amazing.

casey st. louis

I went if for my regular cleaning, after cleaning it was found I had a cavity on a back molar, Dr. Salam asked if I wanted to take care of it now or later, not wanting to come back I had it taken care of then, Dr. Salam was pleasant to talk and joke with, I was given a *(Painless) shot to numb the tooth, and in a few minutes was done and on my way home.
I would recommend Dr. Salam to anyone looking for a Dentist, he was enjoyable to talk too, good sense of humor, nice laugh and I have several friends who go to his office who also say the same thing.

Woody Wood

This is the best dental office north of Syracuse! Dr. Salam is a true professional and calmed me down during my filling appointment (which i really needed). His assistants and office staff answered every single question i had thoroughly, and i was left with a great feeling.
I had a male hygienist deal with my teeth and it was one of the best cleanings i can remember receiving. Great job all around and i will tell all my friends and family!

Alan Hight

Quick and painless, friendly environment.

Tyler Wilder

I was a bit nervous thinking about getting an implant. But all that went away immediately upon meeting Dr. Salam and his All Star staff. Dr. Zeeshan is amazing. He is friendly and knowledgeable and has a great smile. He really listens to your concerns and does a fantastic job of answering all of your questions. His confidence in what he does and the manner in which he speaks to you makes you feel safe and right at home. I really trust him.

The office is beautiful and to tell you the truth, I love everyone that works there. Friendly. Helpful. Caring. Thats what Long Falls Dentistry is all about. They put that smile right back on my face.

Two big thumbs up. 5 out of 5. So if you need to get some dental work done, make that call. You will be glad that you did. They really did a great job with me.

Krissi Rosy

We went for a second opinion and O boy 'm I glad we went there. We were told unnecessary fillings and procedures at another local dentist, half of the things we didn't even need. I feel the Dentist was honest, thorough in n out and took time to explain what and why if anything needs to be done. We felt we were really taken care off. Excellent customer service & would definitely recommend this place to my family & friends.

Michelle Hastings

I loved the atmosphere of the office and the people that work there are great. It’s a very homey place.

Keyrsten Medrano

This Dentistry is without a doubt absolutely SPECTACULAR. I was recently in an accident leaving me with half of a front tooth - mind you my dental history is flawless. No cavities, braces, teeth whitening, you name it. Dental care has been a top priority my whole life. I was terrified my smile would never look the same. Nethertheless, Dr. Zeeshan Salam has me looking exactly the same. The first of my three appointments I was actually greeted by a customer who immediately began raving about how great he felt after having two extractions the day before. I have my first "normal" appointment tomorrow and very much look forward to being welcomed by the professional, friendly staff. 20/10 recommend.

Naomi Mitchell

Great atmosphere and staff, zero anxiety. I highly recommend this prcatice!

I can honestly say I love going to the dentist now! I also tell everyone about this place!

Eladio Laporte

They are the best dentist office I have ever been too. Everyone is very kind and friendly. They make you feel comfortable and even my wife was impressed by there waiting room.

Violet Clark

I was referred to long falls dentistry by a friend that had a cosmetic corrective dental procedure done by dr. Salam . I was so impressed by the results My friend achieved there as a patient being that her teeth looked natural and perfectly symmetricalL . I called for an implant consultation to see what can be done about a tooth that I was told that it needed to be extracted . Dr Salam took the time to greet me and introduce himself and the practice . Dr. Salam And his wonderful assistant took the time to explain to me the whole implant procedure and the pros and the cons about having the dental implant done . Their office was immaculately clean and at every appointment I felt like the room was personalized and packages were waiting to be opened just for me . For me that’s important they they follow great hygiene practices . The Tooth implant procedures went well I felt like I had a say in the matter . now my front teeth will not shift as a result of loosing my k9 . I feel I can smile again and I’m proud to refer my friend and family to long falls dentistry . Keep up the good service guys

Woman was great. Made me feel really comfortable and appreciated. Love this place and glad I found it.

Christina Lynn Longley

I love this office! All the staff are super friendly, Dr. Salam is very professional and helpful and empathetic, and the office is beautifully and comfortably decorated. The "cavity chair" I'll call it even has a back massager in it! I always feel very well taken care of here and recommend them to anyone, but especially to those who may have dentist anxiety. They will definitely make you feel comfortable!

Amanda Warner

Hands down, this is the best dentistry place in town. I went in for extraction and it turned out to be a piece of cake. I was extremely scared but Dr. Salam and his team took very good care of me. The front desk was very co-operative and flexible with scheduling the appointments. They were more than willing to put my needs in front of theirs. I had to get 3 molars extracted and the whole procedure took less than an hour. Afterwards, Dr Salam called me to make sure I was doing okay. In addition, there is a lot of seating area. Dr. Salam is very kids friendly and brought in a lot of toys to keep little ones busy. I'd definitely recommend him to everyone and give him 5 stars.

usman habib

Made me husband feel real comfortable even though he had fear. Got him right in took his time and my husband had minimal to no pain from the extraction. Great staff and beautiful office.

Hannah Wilton

Dr. Salam personifies the compassionate professional. His easy manner lowers the stress level during my implant placement and his straightforward and clear communication make the details understandable. I can’t recommend him and Long Falls Dentistry highly enough.

Muhammad AbdulSamie Khan

I called Dr. Salams office 15 minutes before then even opened yesterday and told them I broke my front tooth. The nice office staff told me to come right in. Dr. Salam examined my tooth, took x-rays, and gave me my options. He never made me feel like I did not have a choice. He fixed me up quickly and I think my front tooth looks better than it did before!! Thank you, Dr. Salam!

Kylie Schell

My experience at this office has always been great. Dr. Salam removed 3 of my wisdom teeth without any pain or problems. Chris the hygenist is amazing she does an awesome job cleaning my teeth. I would definatly check out this office if your not sure of who to see you will not be disappointed.

Tracy clary

I'm a new patient at Long Falls Dentistry. Having no clue at first-I met doctor Salam in the hallway casually watering his flowers and greeting me as well as his employees like friends.

If you are looking to get Dental implants..this is the place to be. Implants in general from start to finish is a 40 min procedure. Most of the time you get the crown the same day...if not in couple months.
