Hi Angela, thanks for the query,According to the condition of tooth you described it seems like extraction is must because otherwise infection would not go away and would lead to abscess formation and surgery would be ultimate solution then, and nerve damage is more likely during surgery so it is better to take that tooth out. As far as your anxiety is concerned i would suggest you should get this extraction under sedation so that you do not get anxious during the procedure and so your blood pressure remains stable. You can request your dentist to do the procedure under sedation by himself or the best would be to get it done under monitored anesthesia care as you are asthamatic as well.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.
