About 2 weeks ago i went to the dentist for the first time in seven years. The Denstist told me my front tooth which I damaged in an accident seven years ago and had the bottom half replaced needs a root canal. After reading up on root canals in this forum i am very skeptical about the whole procedure. Apparently though, the tooth is now dead and the root is infected so it would be wise for me to deal with it right away. What would be the best gameplan for this situation?
