– I get asked, is root canal a safe procedure?

Realistically, it is, once you sort of identify root canals and you get in and you clean them out, then you can seal them up, but there’s no real huge risk involved. Probably the big effect is whether you can’t locate the canals properly, or you can’t properly seal them at the end, well, there might be a risk of infection of the tooth down the track, or as discussed previously, things like cracks in the tooth. That can also affect the procedure in itself, that if you’re going to do the root canal, you might find it’s not successful because the crack is causing a problem within the tooth that can’t be resolved.
