Is Root canal necessary ?

I went to a dentist for a regular checkup. A teeth was diagnosed with trauma that might have happened years ago.x-ray was taken and root canal with crown was prescribed. I have no issues with the teeth or any signs of infection. I only wanted to know scaling and polishing options. Can i avoid a root canal? Is it safe?

Dear sir. The more you delay in undergoing root canal treatment lesser is the prognosis value.
Non vital tooth may revolt against you any time.
