I would definitely go for the root canal. There are companies like Care Credit that will let you put your dental expenses on a credit card for 1 year with 0% APR and they will just bill you monthly. They are really great and if you need to take longer to pay it, they can extend it for low percentage. Not all dental offices accept it but it would be worth checking out.
Hope this helps!
