In brief: See your dentist

A badly decayed tooth is a serious infection risk.
You should see your dentist or oral surgeon to determine if the tooth can be fixed with root canal treatment and a crown. If it is too badly decayed, it will need to be extracted. The tooth can then be later replaced with a dental implant or bridge.

In brief: Decayed teeth

It depends on how much good tooth is left after removing all the decay.
An exam and xray can tell, and see if the tooth can be saved.

You need to see a dentist.
It will probably be extracted if the part above the gum is gone.
