Pain ! SCARED. Will I need a root canal or Filling !

Hello! So lately, I've been having somewhat of pain on my right side near my molar teeth. I don't think my tooth is decayed too much to need a root canal. But I have had a lot of symptoms such as pain, some when I bite down, although no sensitivity. Would a simple filling fix my this problem?
Hi unfortunately until you see a dentist and they can examine the tooth no one is able to answer this for you. Even if you did need a rct they aren't bad, people are just afraid when they hear them mentioned. They are pain free and very quiet when being done. Hopefully you can gain the courage to make an appointment and see if a filling will cure your problem. :butterfly:
