OUCH< OUCH< I hate having a tooth pulled. I'd ALMOST gotten over (by age 50) the trauma of getting my wisdom teeth out when I was 22. The broken tooth was deemed by both my dentist and the specialist that he sent me to as hopeless.
They just numbed me up and took a pair of plier like thingys... CRUNCH CRACK and it was gone.
OWWWWWIIEEEE. Scared me more than hurt, really and I will admit that I whimpered like a baby.......
OTOH, painkillers are my friend. I am now going to sleep and hope it feels better when I get up.
