Hello there. Root canal treatment is absolutely safe when done by expert and it is no where related to causing cancer and hear problems. In fact tooth infection can worsen heart problems and RCT eliminate that infection. So be worry free and go for it if you need. Regards

The Internet is a double edged sword. Anything read on the Internet must always be cross-checked with a couple of other sources. Also these are all under researched claims. If root canals caused cancer can you imagine how many cancer patients there will be in the world? By the age of 60 almost everyone has had at least one root canal treatment.
