I would extract the tooth and place an dental implant or bridge in that spot.  Good luck, Dr. David Frey

Inform patient first, if no symptoms occur watch and wait with new radiograph every 6-12 months. If symptoms do occur then I suggest extraction with carbocaine and OTC pain meds good luck remember second trimester is the best time to do dental care. good luck
