Extraction vs. Root Canal vs. Rejection

What are the chances of a tooth being rejected that has already received multiple restorations (over half is composite) after a root canal? I have an infection, and am receiving treatment. I have already taken one round of antibiotics, and start a second round tomorrow. I was told I could choose to do a root canal or extraction. I am trying to decide what would be in my best interest. The tooth in question has had multiple restorations, the most recent due to the tooth cracking and almost half of it falling out, therefor half composite. I have noticed that this tooth also moves slightly or is not as snug in the gums as the rest of my teeth. Since I have already spent $600-700 on this tooth my concern lies in spending the money for the canal and crown ... only to have it reject in a few months.
