Root Canal VS Extraction?

I'm supposed to be getting a root canal very soon (i keep putting it off) I still have my wisdom teeth and I'm wondering which one hurts more..

Root Canal

or

Extraction?

wisdom teeth arent anchored in as much as other teeth so they hurt less to pull than others. if the problem is a wisdom tooth pull it. if you are using wisdom teeth as an example of never having a tooth pulled and another tooth is the problem get the root canal. root canals sound scary but they cause minimal pain and its better for the overall health of your mouth to keep teeth if possible. good luck!

Wisdom tooth is generally not worth saving, unless special condition dictates.
