In brief: Root canal

If your dentist thinks it can be saved and restored with a root canal then that is the best option in my opinion.
I always recommend using your own natural tooth as the best restorative option.

In brief: First option- rc

If the tooth can be saved with a root canal, this is the first and best option.
There are many considerations that you may have to think about- costs (including restoring the tooth permanently, prognosis, amount of tooth left, etc. Ask questions and possibly get a second opinion if in doubt.
