Why You Shouldn’t Postpone Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy may be recommended by your dentist to save a badly damaged or infected tooth. You should always go ahead with the treatment as soon as possible.

Key takeaways:

  • Postponing treatment could cause the infection to spread to gum tissue or to other teeth.
  • Oral infection can also spread to the bloodstream and cause heart conditions.
  • The longer you wait to have treatment, the more difficult it will be to restore the affected tooth; you could lose the tooth.

Also, the sooner you get your tooth treated, the sooner you’ll be pain free.
