Possibly: But it would be better to restore it rather than extract it. The longer you wait, the less chance there is of saving it. Please call a dentist for an appointment before you become infected and the pain increases to excruciating levels.

Rotten tooth: Cannot diagnose you in this forum. Can recommend, however, that you be examined to determine your overall oral health, your area of concern, and then have a discussion about appropriate treatment. If other teeth are decayed, don't let them get this bad. Please see a Dentist ASAP for appropriate treatment.
