I was told I May need a root canal based upon how a particular tooth does with this current filling. So, when I got home I did research on root canals really just due to the fear of the pain. Suprisingly, I found that root canals are extremely dangerous because while saving the tooth itself mainly for cosmetic reasons can be very dangerous to the rest of your body. The root still contains harmful bacteria that are then directed into your body system heart, lungs, etc and a very large percentage of people who have had root canals suffer from cancer and other heart disease etc. I personally with remove the tooth if necessary and add a partial if that day comes, but I was just curious if this is something others were aware of.
