Root Canals & Extractions

Part of Curry Health Center Dental's services include root canals and simple extractions.

Root Canals

Root canals are performed for a variety of reasons.  If decay has gone into the pulp or ‘nerve’ of a tooth, a tooth has broken too far down, or a tooth has simply ‘died’, a root canal is done.  This allows patients to keep their tooth if enough of it is left, instead of having it extracted.


If a tooth has suffered significant trauma, decay or periodontal disease around it, extraction may be recommended. If it is necessary, we do extract teeth if it is a simple case.  We do not extract impacted teeth at our clinic, but are able to provide a referral and X-Ray if this is needed.
