Is a root canal safe to do one week before aortic valve replacement? or better to wait 6 months after surgery?

Root Canal Therapy: This should be discussed with your own dentist in consultation with your Cardiologist and not a dentist over the internet who lacks more information then what you posted. Generally speaking if an infection is present this needs to be dealt with prior to the surgery.
