I havent been to the dentist for a long time due to a fear

i have had a sore molar for a while where i think i've lost the filling and it has become infected , while just chewing on a soft sweet yesterday half of the side fell away , im not worried about how they would remove it?

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.

They may not remove the tooth until the infection is cleared up, but you need to go to the dentist immediately to get some antibiotics.

ouch....

Just read your reply to RadioBoy ...I have same thing....dentists says root canal would be waste of time...tooth must come out.....I am concerned because I won't have the means to have a implant or bridge right away. I know leaving it open will start to cause problems with tooth above and other teeth eventually move over and that will start problems all way around. Any other suggestions ?
