Hello,

It's completely up to you. Most root canals are performed by general dentists, but if it's a particularly difficult case, the general dentist will likely refer to a specialist. As I said, it depends on your comfort level. If you have confidence in your dentist to do it and he/she feels they are skilled enough, then go for it. On the other hand, if you do feel more comfortable going to a specialist, then I would go that route.

Hello,

Sorry to hear that! Regarding your options, you have a few. If possible an implant would be best, 2nd best would be a fixed bridge and, lastly, if cost/insurance coverage is an issue, then the last option would be a removable partial denture, often referred to as a "flipper."
Good luck.

Best regards,
