Can you avoid root canal if your dead teeth do not cause pain?

You can do whatever you want. It's YOUR body.

Just make sure you go to your dentist and get a root canal the day BEFORE it gets infected. Let your dentist know when that day is so he can schedule you.

Pain is a good motivator and it's too bad more medical problems are not painful.
For example, high blood pressure is not painful. Until you have a heart attack.

Yes of course. Root canals are projected only if teeth is aching and causing trouble.

Moreover its individual decision whether to go for root canal or not. This treatment is mainly done to save natural tooth structure and in case it is not aching then you can avoid it.

A dead tooth should be extracted or have a root canal treatment. Despite other advice, root canals are not just for currently aching teeth

Just because it's dead and doesn't hurt now doesn't mean it's safe to just leave in there. That empty space in the pulp chamber of your dead tooth is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Bacteria = infection. Infection in your teeth, very close to your brain, is not something to mess with.
