Six months before, I consulted a dentist when I had tooth pain while biting with the top right molar. I was told to have a tooth filling then. But I skipped my appointment as I was scared and hated dental procedures. But now, I regret not doing the fills at the right time as it hurts like hell!
When the pain became unbearable, I visited the dentist, and he told me that the hole had gone deep. So tooth filling alone can't cure the problem. The only remedy suggested by him was to do a root canal, and I took an appointment for next week. But I'm very much scared about the root canal procedure!!!
Moreover, one of my friends increased my anxiety by sharing his experience on the root canal. He said his teeth were extracted even after the process due to severe pain. I'm now confused about whether to go with the root canal or extract the infected tooth.
Can anyone here help me? I would like to hear your experiences on this as it could help me make the right decision.
