Cavity in a two-toed sloth

Our eleven year-old female sloth has a fairly deep (1/4-1/3 thickness of the whole tooth) concave indentation at the gumline on a maxillary caniniform tooth. It is significant enough that on another species (e.g. carnivore) I would restore the tooth, or even consider extracting it. Not sure how to handle it in the case of a sloth with continually growing teeth though. 

Any thoughts?
