Will an infection of the root canal go away on its own without root canal treatment?

A root canal infection will never go away on its own. An untreated root canal infection can severely comprise that tooth and can even lead to a systemic infection, especially in those people with weakened immune systems. Without treatment, there is a good chance that you may lose that tooth or cause other dental complications.

If root canal treatment is recommended for you and you have fear or anxiety about the procedure, please talk to us. Modern root canal treatment is relatively painless and will save you a great deal of dental pain and other complications.


A Root canal infection can cause:


- Pain

- Spread away from the tooth
