I am fearful of having a root canal on my left wisdom tooth. I need the tooth since I do not have a regular tooth there. I am fearful because the tooth has a 90 degree curved root. It looks like it grew in horizontal and then took a right turn up. I am 61 years old and the tooth as been perfect all these years until it cracked. It has a crown on it now but it is still very painful when I bite down and sensitive to anything cold. I am fearful this will not take. Can it really be done? Would it be better to have it extracted and get an implant? Anybody else have this problem and how did it go?
