I know a dog without canines that had to be retired. I think that with pressure being made on one side than the other there can be some shifting on the sleeve, but only a guessing.
From what you describe bone can be compromised if not treated properly and in that case I'd go for the extraction, not only money wise, but to be safe. I can speak from experience, I had a root canal done that got silently infected, years later I presented an abscess and had to say goodbye to my molar. I remember the dentist said that if there is an abscess on the external side of the teeth you can consider treatment, but if there is infection on the palatine side the risk is just to high.
