Buffalo Endodontist Explains if a Root Canal Can Cause Illness
As an experienced Buffalo Endodontist, I often talk to patients that are worried that root canal procedure may cause other medical problems.
- A common question currently circulating on the internet concerns the possibility that root canal therapy can cause other medical problems.
- Go to the American Academy of Endodontists’ website and read their published paper. It includes hundreds of references – none of which support any such claims.
- A dental infection is a localized infection which, if not treated, can become a systemic problem.
- Because the materials we use are inert, the focal infection theory is no cause for concern.
