Root canal cap falling off question

I had a root canal about 15 years ago on the tooth all the way in the back and it came off in Feb. It was thrown away by accident and now Im only left with the cement. Ive been having pain in that area recently and dont know if its that or the one next to it. Now, when in pain I can bite down on it and have no pain at all besides the natural toothache. Thats why I think its the cement one. It feels like someone is taking a shovel and scraping the bottom of the root. I take Ibproben and that takes it away.

My question is this, does anyone know what the options are for this? Im not getting another root canal there too much money. Would they be able to pull this tooth I guess is the better question? lmk and thanks

Re: Root canal cap falling off question

The nerve is gone from the tooth, you'll probably need a new crown.

I wouldn't choose to have the tooth pulled, all of your teeth, esp molars are important for eating.
