Get a third opinion with x-rays. I will tell you that the pulp test (bang on teeth) is the most accurate in determining viability of the tooth pulp. It sounds like you do not need a root canal - BUT, I am not sure! So, get another opinion - and you might just have a sensitive tooth. Did you have any injury to this tooth, ever?
