I really never heard about the connection,but I did find these 2 links that suggest that a possibility might exist.
I hope some members can join this thread,if they have any more information on this subject,which I find very interesting.

You asked in your other post if there is a SCIENTIFIC link, and the answer to that is NO. I could find no carefully controlled, scientifically reviewed research studies on this issue. In fact, no actual research at all. (Just because a lot of women with BC may have had root canals doesn't proove anything--MOST women of the ages where BC is common have probably had at least one root canal!)
I think this is something the "fringe" alternative medicine people have latched onto, but even the well-known and highly respected champion of alternative medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil, does NOT subscribe to this theory. He answerd a question about root canals causing BC and other health problems on his Web site, and this was his concluding comment:
"To sum up, Dr. Swidler and other holistic dentists who subscribe to these theories believe that losing a tooth is sometimes better for your health than having a root canal. Mainstream dentists and the American Dental Association do not share those views and maintain that the procedure is safe. That's my personal belief, as well. Given a choice between losing a tooth or having root canal surgery, I would opt for a root canal."
