Hi..based on the tooth position we can decide whether to save by RCT or remove. Removal is always best option if tooth crown and roots are complicated . Regards

It depends on the position of the third. Thever fact that your third is decayed is because of inaccessibility to clean. So i think you take your dentist's advice.
