Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, we try to answer general questions about dental and oral health but cannot diagnose or recommend treatment. You appear to have some very specific questions about your root canal which can only be answered properly by a dentist who has examined you and reviewed your X-rays. If your dentist is unable to help you, you should get a second opinion.

Take care.
