What problems?: Only suggestion i can give you is to see a local endodontist who can assess your situation and advise you of the correct course of action.

Treat it !: After practicing for 35 years I have come to the realization that i can only suggest treatment. Patients need to be educated so they can make their own decisions. When a tooth needs a root canal it is because an infection exists. Leaving an infection in the body is counter intuitive. Symptoms vary but nobody should leave an infection. Either treat the tooth or extract it. Good luck -.

See an endodontist: Without any specifics, the best suggestion I can make is to see a specialist who just does root canal - an endodontist. You may even want to consider going to one of the dental schools in Texas and have the professors who teach endodontics, evaluate your problems. Good luck!
