Root Canal Treatment


Carthage, NY

A root canal can save your tooth

​With the term root canal, many of you might start feeling the anxiety building in you. Also, ​this keeps many patients from visiting the dentist. Let us assure you, with Dr. Salam taking the lead, and the field of dentistry embracing the most recent technologies and methods, there’s absolutely nothing that you should be worried about​.
​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 root canal process allows dentists to replace the damaged pulp while preserving the natural appearance of the tooth better than other alternatives. ​It’s less painful, incurs lesser expenses and preserves your teeth.

Understanding how root canal works

​Commonly called a root canal, ​this treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that’s often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. ​In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Dr.Salam is the best! He was able to restore my confidence with some cosmetic work to my front teeth. I am so happy with the way my veneers came out ! I highly recommend him.

Long Falls is the dental office to go to if you need cosmetic work done. Dr. Salam will come up with a very individualized plan to achieve a smile to be proud of. I was weary of getting veneers as i thought i might not be happy with the results, but he listened to my concerns and did everything precisely how I imagined my perfect smile to be.I am so happy with the result, now I don't have to think twice before smiling or cover my smile like I used to. The staff is friendly and accomodating, you can feel that they really care. Very much recommend this place.
