Can A Root Canal Cause Illness?

As an experienced Buffalo Endodontist, I often talk to patients that are worried that root canal procedure may cause illness, or other medical problems. In the following video, Dr. Aaron McCann answers the commonly asked question of “Can a root canal cause illness?”

  • 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.
