My tooth was giving me so much pain that I was desperate for relief. I rang up my dentist and was told to come in the next day. On my arrival, he took X-rays, and after examining the offending molar closely, he told me the bad news. You can either get rid of this one as it’s the last one on this side or go for a root canal treatment.
I opted for extraction. It was the quickest option. The molar was so firmly fixed that it required quite an effort to pull it out.
I’d lost another tooth!
