In brief: Failed RCT

A failed root canal can become infected and infections can spread in bone and cause destruction to surrounding bone and tissues.
Therefore, it requires prompt treatment-- either re-treatment, surgery or extraction of tooth. See an Endodontist for an evaluation and to discuss treatment options.
