Ongoing infection and my health

Hi,
I really hope someone can help me.
I've recently had Invisalign followed by composite binding on my front 4 upper teeth.

I told my dentist that my right central incisor has been very sensitive to touch at the very top of the tooth where it reaches the gum line. He took an x-ray and told me I would need root canal treatment.

My question is whether having had this issue for a good few years could have resulted in any health issues.

My kidney blood tests never come back quite right and I'm tired most of the time.

I'd really like to know if this could be the cause.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ps I've not yet had the root canal treatment due to coronavirus.

Thanks again!

No. Dead teeth are much like having a splinter stuck in your skin. The infection and resultant inflammation etc is very localised.
