In brief: No

Root canal treatments, just like everything else have a failure rate.
Nothing is a 100% guarantee. Even the best dentists have failures due to conditions out of their control. Root canals however can work great and are usually a good option to save a tooth. Ask you dentist about it and ask what, if any, options there are.

In brief: Nothing is 100%

However the best success rates are root canals performed by a microscopically trained endodontist that has much experience!
