    I have two molars with deep holes under the gum line (result of impact wisdom tooth). The doctor is not sure if I need root canal. No pain or sensitivity.
    What is the second opinion?

    Those 2nd molars have been very badly damaged by the impacted wisdom teeth. Yes, you might be able to save them with root canal therapies, but the depth of the cavities will leave these teeth very weak and likely to fracture. I would advise you to have them extracted ASAP.
