Yes. Leaving an infection in the body would be far more dangerous than getting an RCT. An RCT is a very simple non invasive procedure. Just inform the cardiologist and begin treatment as soon as possible. He may put you on an antibiotic as a precaution though it is not essential.

Just take an elaborate letter from dentist about procedure, antibiotic and analgesic what he is going to use, take the same to your cardiologist and get a go-ahead from him and go on with the procedure as your cardiologist suggest
