Discolouring - Desperate

Hi Doc!

My front tooth is discoloured due to a fall and that tooth was affected i think that it could be a bit loose however for the past 2 years there has been major discolouration on this tooth and I' ve become so complexed and would really appreciate some advice as I have no clue what can be done.

Will I need to extract and replace the whole tooth? Please help

No an extraction is not usually necessary in this case.
A root canal is essential whereafter a crown can be placed on the tooth
