What can you do if your dentist didn't finish your root canal?

Have it done as soon as possible. Any leftover nerve tissue may become calcified over time and cause future complications with the treatment. Any leftover bacteria will cause infection in the tooth and jaw.

i had a partial root canal and had a temporary filling put in it. i waited three months before getting it finished, although you should have it done as soon as you can
