Root canal treatment is very simple procedure where u will be given local anesthetic where u will not feel any pain, the other way is removing tooth and its not a correct procedure when u have a perfect treatment
If root canal is necessary as your dentist says, I suggest you go ahead with a root canal.If caries has damaged your pulp tissue. For more comment will require your Xrays to suggest the treatment plan.
