Dentist 's  Response
A tooth can be root canal treated depending on the condition of intact tooth structure present. If sufficient structure is not possible then the tooth should be extracted and you can go in for a dental implant or a fixed partial denture.

Welcome to HCM.
If there is only half of the tooth then root canal will not sustain as your doctor said so, better opt for extraction.
Take care.

welcome to HCM
Since half the root is damaged already the tooth cannot be saved completely. Root canal treatment can be done only when there is an intact root..
Hope this answers your query..
