WHAT most Americans fear, more than paying taxes and speaking in public, is getting a root canal treatment.

The survey reveals that seven out of 10 (70 percent) Americans fear losing a natural tooth. Ironically, the same number also fear root canal treatment, a dental procedure that can save their teeth.
