I’m having one of my lower back molars pulled tomorrow due to an infection when the dentist out on a crown back in November. It’s been messed up ever since. I’m terrified of the extraction! Will it hurt and do they give antibiotics after.
I don’t want a root canal. I’ve had one before and it was terrifying and honestly I don’t trust this new dentist 100%

This is the 21st century :) If it hurts make them do something about it!

No you shouldn't need antibiotics afterwards.

Have a read on some of the success stories on here about getting teeth out, it's nowhere near as bad as you think it'll be.
