Hello Ms. lybrate-user
root canal treatment is absolutely safe treatment to save your tooth. It is done under local anesthesia and it is a normal dental treatment procedure. So relax and go for the treatment.
No its not a dangerous procedure. Its recommended to go for a root canal treatment when your tooth requires it. Otherwise it can cause pus to accumulate in your bone and gums surrounding the concerned tooth and cause swelling which can sometimes be dangerous to your health.
