I have a decayed second molar on the bottom right side (photo attached). It is decayed over the years to about one third. Just now, it has completely broken off and freed itself from its roots, but is held by only the inside edge of my gums. There is no swelling, but the gums have been tender for a week now. I did have a check up and cleaned about a week and a half ago. It is a tooth along with four wisdom teeth that I have been told to have taken out. I have yet to schedule an appointment but will make it soon. This broken piece is bothering me, and I was wondering if it was a terrible idea to go ahead and pull it from the attached gums.
