It is always good to save the tooth whenever possible. Go ahead for root canal treatment and save the tooth.

dear u must go back n get root canal done.coz loosing natural tooth isn't a good idea.
Do a root canal therapy and save the tooth.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.
