The root canal procedure can also get infected when infection is already present in the mouth elsewhere. Hence it would be best to let the present infection to heal completely before proceeding for the root canal treatment. Use of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs will help hasten the healing process. Consult your Doctor.
Hope this helps.
