Tooth decay

I experienced sensitivity following superficial decay in lower first molar, the dentist did permanent laser filling but i felt pain while chewing. On complaining, she did 'LASER FILLING OVER GIC LAYER'. Now, after 6 months, pain has started in roots while sleeping; My dentist is up for RCT but is there some other way?

Dear Sir,
There is a possibility that the filling is deep & involves the nerves. Did you get any X-ray done?
If it shows the decay till pulp (nerve), then RCT is the only better option.
