Hello Deborah, thank you for posting your question. Without an examination and x-rays it's impossible for me to determine if the tooth needs to be removed and replaced with an implant. I believe in saving teeth whenever possible, but it does sound like the tooth has been treated and retreated. An implant may be your best option at this point. I hope this helps. Click save on the save button below my name, so that you may ask me more questions in the future.
