What happens if I don't go for my root canal?
It depends on a few factors, but if your dentist recommends treatment and you don't go ahead with it, you risk getting a nasty infection in your mouth that has a risk of spreading; you also risk having the tooth get too decayed to be saved and then needs to be extracted. Delaying the treatment for a week may be an option, I would ask your dentist if that was medically safe to do.... but you should get the tooth treated. The alternative treatment option for root canal treatment is extraction - having the tooth removed. We always advise you to save your natural tooth when it's possible! READ MORE
