Can I Receive Root Canal Treatment Even When I’m Wearing Braces?

Q.
Hi I was just wondering if you could advise me with something? Is it possible to have root canal treatment whilst wearing fixed braces? I have a swollen throbbing root in my cheek from my canine tooth which is getting worse. I have had my braces for 3 months and plan on having the treatment completed after 10 months. The molar next to this tooth was extracted 5 1/2 months ago due to a failed root canal treatment I don’t know if this is a possible reason for my problem now. I have no idea whats caused it all I know is that it’s causing me great concern now. I’m also in a lot of pain, it’s affecting everything I do. Just so you know, I do brush regular and use a fluoride mouthwash daily. With this in mind, do you have any advice for me? Thank you for your time.
