It : It is not clear exactly what was done to tooth #11 to make cause it to be cut in half. Usually you can drill through the crown to do a root canal, and in the case of tooth #11 the access point is on the inside aspect of the tooth away from visualization. Too little information to make a comment about other options. Sorry.
