My dentist hates me too.
I use a syringe and wash the tooth out with bleach.
Then load with ambesol and some cotton.
After that a temporary tooth filling agent you can get from pharmacies and top it off with super glue.
Last longer than anything they can do for me.

I think the key is like anything - find a good dentist who cares about what he's doing.
Life Cycle and Attack of Oral Spirochetes
Now, let’s look at a model for oral spirochetes. These very aggressive creatures multiply by the trillions in the crevice between the tooth and gum, where they are fed constantly by the fluid coming from the blood inside the body which leaks out constantly due to improper oral hygiene. These bacteria can go through the skin of the gums just like the syphilis spirochete goes through the skin of the genitals

Yep, the dentists only parrot what that they were taught in school....
Oil huh?.....I use oregano oil for just two or three minutes and it kills all the bacillus bacteria.....do that once every two months.....follow after ten minutes.....the bacillus crack open dead after ten minutes....then ya kill the eggs....

I have had three. First one, was just awful. Dentist drilled out the RC, and then sealed it over and gave me another appointment three weeks later.
The end of week one, I started noticing the pressure buildup under the sealed area.
By the third week, I couldn't sleep, the pressure behind the seal was unbearable. The dentist refused to change my appointment, "he was booked solid".
My dad finally took me for my appointment. I literally sat in the chair and BEGGED him to drill it open.
When he hit it with the drill, it literally exploded with puss, the look on his face was priceless as he tried to dodge the spray, which he didn't do and it literally sprayed his entire chest area, I literally fell asleep and woke up when he said he was done. I had that taste in my mouth for MONTHS. He stuck me on massive antibiotics. That tooth is fine today, but that was an experience like nothing else in my life.

There are 25 million root canals done PER YEAR. The vast majority of them come out just fine. I had one several years ago and it saved the tooth. Just like a crown, they are not much fun, but I felt no excessive pain at all. To suggest that because YOU had problems that EVERYONE needs to avoid them is really silly. It's not all about you. If you want t look like a hillbilly with lots of missing teeth, go right ahead, but don't expect the rest of the world to fall off the cliff with you.
