That's not really a question we're going to be able to answer. We're not really sure anyone can, there are just too many personal variables involved.

This answer sort of suggests that point.

As far as coming up with numbers:

# of root canals performed each year. (There are over 300 million people in the USA.)

% of people who have had a root canal.

Your dentist (someone who has actually evaluated your teeth) would be in the best position to give you an answer. And it might be rather simple for them to form an opinion about what your risks might be.
