I have my molar tooth half broken is it possible I can get rct done for this or do I have to go for tooth extraction?

It depends on whether there is any fracture line extending into the root portion of your teeth which can be seen in x- ray. Damage only to the part of teeth above your gums can always b restored. Dentist'll guide you if an rct is required or not n later it can b crowned. If major portion of tooth is lost, post n core buildup options remains before capping that tooth.
