Q.

Root canal / metal mouth

Hi Doc,

I hope you will be able to help me. Is it in any way possible that the metal used to block a root canal or used in a crown can play a role in the female organs? I know this must sound very strange, but I had a root canal and the crown that I have has metal in it and a doctor told me this could be why I have been diagnosed with PCOS.

Kind Regards.

I dont think it could affect your organs.I need to look at the most recent literature.
