Can You Get a Root Canal with Braces?

Hi I’m Dr. Arianna Papasikos and the question of the day is “Can You Get a Root Canal with Braces?”

If you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment and you do need to have a root canal, just let your orthodontist know and it should be no problem at all. What you may need to do is have your orthodontist remove the braces from that tooth that needs the root canal so that the dentist can get in and do the procedure. Once the root canal is done, there should be no issues with moving that tooth to where it needs to go. So overall it is not a problem if this happens to you. Thanks so much for watching and have a great day.
