Hello all, Last year I had a back wisdom tooth removed. Due to decay, he left in the root. It has now come to the surface and is causing me pain. When the dentist opens, I plan to call for an emergency appointment. What can I expect the extraction to be like? I am scared to death.

Ok, thought I would post a follow up. Went to the dentist at 1pm EST. Dentist looked and said root need removing. Immediately began numbing injections. Had to do some drilling but root eventually came out. Slightly painful but still numb.

It's rarely as bad as we expect, isn't it?
