A.Oral health expert
it is difficult to say what your options are without assessing the state of your teeth/mouth. the nature of the adjacent teeth etc need to be determined.
if the tooth is loose and the supporting bone is healthy, an infection is the most likely cause. the crown will not allow the top part of the nerve of the tooth to be seen on x-ray.
before extracting the tooth, it may be better to remove the crown first and see if there is any decay under the crown
