Any time you have a tooth extracted you need to consider what it will do to the rest of your mouth. In the case of having a tooth pulled in the very back of your mouth, it's not usually a huge problem. However, when you start talking the other 24 teeth in your mouth there is. Any time a tooth is pulled you have to expect that eventually it's "dancing partener" (the tooth directly above or below it that it occludes with while biting) will gradually make it's way out also and fall out. The teeth on either side of an area that has had an extraction will gradually tip into that space and cause not only biting issues, but esthetic ones. Eventually it will become difficult to chew food as effectively as you are used to. I would highly recommend having a root canal done and saving the tooth at all costs (we're talking teeth that are not the furthest molars in your mouth). If you cannot afford a root canal (they range from probably $300-$1000 and insurance usually pays for them around 80%) you can always check to see if you qualify with your local Free Clinic.

The best thing would be to have a filling put in the tooth. But if the tooth is going to fall out soon, the dentist may recommend pulling it instead. Have it looked at by a dentist and then do what you think is best.Whatever you do don't pull it out yourself. See a dentist its not that bad, honestly..lolFill the ToothPulling a baby tooth too early can cause other teeth to move forward and cause misaligned teeth. It depends on the age of the child and which tooth it is. If the tooth is about to fall out, then pulling the tooth isn't a bad option. Some "baby teeth" stick around until age 11 or 12 or even 13 sometimes, so if it is a young child, pulling the wrong baby tooth could cause severe misalignment. You really need a dentist's opinion on this matter.If this is an adult patient with a retained baby tooth, and the adult tooth never came in, well they should probably keep the tooth because there is no "replacement" on the way.

Abscessed teeth cannot heal on their own. It means that the tooth is dying. The root has to be removed or it could end up infecting your other teeth. Normally, a root canal would be done in this case as opposed to pulling it. If the tooth is in really bad shape, the tooth may have to be pulled.

Normally pulling it quick is better then pulling it slowly, from my own experience I would wait till its ready. When it is ready, tie a string around your tooth, then tie the other string to the door; then close the door! Quick and painless!

On pulling a not loose tooth seems pretty easy. I had a not loose tooth then all I did was push it out then push it in. It doesn't hurt at all! It also automatically falls out cos it will get loose and then pull it!

There are a lot of risks of performing self tooth extraction. You could get an infection or you could break the tooth and be left with pieces in your gums.

It is obvious by your question that this tooth has been absessed for some time. If you have never had these symptoms before, they could or could not be related this is why you should firstly make an apt. with your doctor. This is not normal. Secondly make an apt. with your dentist and have your tooth treated.
