This past Jan. was the 1st time I went to a dentist in 6 years
: anyways,my one molar needs a root canal;but everyone I talk to says I should just have them pull it. What would be the best? I've nevr had any dental work EVER(except barces) so I dont know much about either.

i would definitely get the root canal! i had to have 2 this past year, and it was worth the cost to keep my teeth. it didnt hurt at all, and now i'm sporting one porcelin and one gold crown. totally no big deal. the only thing i felt was the needle that the endodontist used to numb me. there was no pain afterwords. i was kinda shocked, since i'd heard all the horror stories about root canals!
I just went through two, and they weren't that bad at all. Haven't got the crowns yet, taking my time ... but don't lose a molar. It'll just cause more problems with the opposing molar in the future.
