Roots too short/damaged for treatment?

Hello everyone.

To put a long story short: had a botched root canal followed by a cyst, got referred to an endodontist, had vitality tests and detail x-rays done on the botched tooth, in addition to a recent (weeks old) panoramic brought along to the office. Please correct me if I'm wrong (this seems like the literal opposite of what should be happening), but I did feel cold/pain during the vitality tests. Regardless, I was told I should get it removed. I don't mean to argue, but the appointment left me a little confused. There was no mention of fractures, cyst size, etc. as the reason to go straight to extraction and nothing new seems to show on the detailed shots compared to the panoramic from earlier.


Are my canals too short/fractured for an apicectomy, repeat root canal, etc.? What is the deciding factor here?

Thanks in advance for any and all information!
