I dont want to look at or hear about any tooth pulling dental tools though, ( my anxiety is too much of a concern...getting a tooth pulled is MAJOR 'tick' for me, its almost too much for me to handle).
Did he get it out? I had a root canaled tooth that had to be pulled and the dentist had to make a big incision in the gum so that it just fell out. But after that my nose was running so badly that I had to cancel my plan for the opera. I missed Rigoletto!

That's another reason I put off seeing to mine. How do you pull a tooth broken off at the gum line? You don't; you slice the gum open. EWWWWW!!!

But once you're in as much pain as I am at the moment, you don't care (nor about the cost). Just make it stop!

Nerves aren't the only thing you have to worry about; abscesses, too.

It's not that big a deal. It's cool when it just falls out. I remember a wisdom tooth that needed some gum cutting but it still felt like the guy was going to rip my jaw off.

However it comes out, at this point, it will be a relief. I have definitely learned my lesson!
