You need to get to a dentist or Oral Surgeon. They will first evaluate the tooth, and then schedule you for an extraction or do it right then and there. But that is your call. Extraction are not painful these days. You will be given plenty of local anesthesia, and if you are very anxious and nervous, ask the doc to prescribe a couple Valium.
