In brief: Bummer

Root canals may fail over time by loosing their seal.
Another possibility is a cracked root. My advice would be to see an endodontist, root canal specialist to evaluate whether the tooth can be saved. 10 year on root canals is around 90%.

In brief: Dental implant

With the advent of the implant dentistry a root canal re-treatments are a thing of the past.
If the situation with the tooth is compromised, the dental implant becomes more predictable option. See your dentist for evaluation and dental implant placement if needed.
