What to Do with a Compromised Tooth?

Endodontic diagnosis for tooth #27: previously treated, symptomatic apical periodontitis.  I/O examination reveals a wide, 6-8mm clinical attachment loss (i.e. probing defect) distal to tooth #27 and loss of distal contact due to enamel fracture.  A CBCT scan shows intact buccal and palatal bone and a significantly shortened palatal root due to external inflammatory root resorption.
