the fact that you had a failed extraction in the chair last year is a major indication that you need to have the tooth removed under general anaesthetic. The other option would be to see a maxillofacial surgeon- if there is a possibility that this tooth could be removed under local anaesthesia he would advise you on that.
Unfortunately there is no "easy solution"
