This is a 20 year old root canal, where they took out too much of the center of the tooth. It has broken. I am broke, what to do?

Hi Hleighny!

Did you get a crown put in after the root canal? The tooth becomes brittle and prone to breakage after a root canal. If there isn't much left on the tooth to hold a crown, it would have to be extracted.
