Request to give your opinion do I require root canal treatment?

You need a pulpal test
It is difficult to diagnose whether you need a root canal based without doing the proper test. You will need to do a pulpal test, EPT or cold test. This can be done by your dentist. I would suggest going to your dentist ASAP. If the pulp is still vital, you can just do a filling. If you wait too long, then a filling will no longer be sufficient.
