I saw a dentist 1 week ago and was told I needed a root canal, however they do not perform such procedures & recommended I see an Endodontist. Unfortunately, after that visit, most offices closed for the Christmas holiday. I am only in town for 2 days before I fly to Chicago on Dec. 30th. I am wondering about the time sensitivity involved regarding a tooth that needs a root canal. Will I likely be okay to wait until I return home in 2 weeks? OR, should I try to scramble and get the root canal done in the next day? I am also nervous about the effects of flying & changes in air pressure on a tooth that has recently had a root canal performed.
