Crown came off in pieces, what is the process to pull the tooth now? : Dentistry


I have a huge phobia of dental work (Sorry) and I’m really in a bind.

A crown I’ve had since I was a kid came off my second to last back molar, but I can still feel a piece of it in my mouth along the side of my tooth.

The tooth was capped in the first place because it’s crumbling and a big piece of it is already missing.

Can it be pulled? I would rather not cap it again as I don’t have dental insurance and am a huge baby about dental work. If they do pull it, about how long would it take and what would the average recovery time be? I can’t take any time off work but I have an office job so no big deal.

Thank you for your help.
