Sometimes a Root Canal is the Best Option for the Patient. Other times Extraction & Placement of an Implant is Best. 

Often times Dr. Harrell will identify a condition with your tooth where the best course of action should be determined by a specialist. Perhaps it is an old root canal that appears to be re-infected. 
Sometimes he sees a shadow on the x-ray but is unsure if it represents disease or if it is just a variation of normal.

In these scenarios, Dr. Harrell will likely refer you to an Endodontist or Oral Surgeon for consultation. This will help decide the best treatment plan for you. Additional angled x-rays will be taken so that they can get a good perspective of all aspects of the tooth.

Occasionally, a 3D scan (aka. CBCT) is taken to allow the specialist to see the tooth in 3 dimensions.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty of dentistry which includes the surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.

Once all information is compiled, they will be able to make a professional recommendation for you and answer any questions to help guide you into making a decision that is right for you.
