Can I still get braces?

In February I went to an orthodontist and they said I had an impacted canine tooth and I needed surgery. They said they were going to refer me to hospital so they could do this and I could get braces. In January my dentist said I may need a root canal and that same tooth has started to hurt again so I think that is the case. Will I still be able to get braces and the surgery if I have had a root canal? I have also not heard anything about the surgery since and I don’t know what’s happening.

Yes, no reason why not. All routine surgery has been postponed for now due to the nasty virus.
