So I have a really bad tooth and the dentist asked would I like to save it or just get it pulled. I opted to save it and started getting treatment for it yesterday, getting the bad stuff from my roots cleaned out. She said it would take a few weeks for it to be completely finished which I was fine with and was looking forward to not being in pain and still having the tooth.
However, I woke up this morning and a big chunk of the tooth fell out and the stuff she packed it with its still holding up. I'm in agony, I've taken ibuprofen and its not helping when usually it does. Also the half that is still there, is really sharp and my tongue is getting a bit cut up. I think now that half the tooth is already gone, I'll just have to get it pulled out. I'm suppose to be going back on Friday but I dont think I'll be able to wait that long with this pain.
Should I try get an appointment for today of even tomorrow just to get it pulled out? Has anyone else had this sort of problem?

Well if a chunk of tooth fell out and the dentist had not told me that was supposed to happen I would be on the phone as soon as surgery opened it's doors asking for advice and an appointment.
