Removal or extraction of a tooth causing severe pain

I am having severe pain in my last tooth.  My dentist says that my tooth has to be removed if I want quick relief. But I am afraid of getting it removed. So he has advised me few medicines. Please advise me, if it is necessary to remove my tooth? Please suggest me some other treatment for it?Answer (by Dr. Chirag Semlani): If you are talking about wisdom tooth the third molar it’s better you get this tooth extracted if the  pain symptoms recur. The alternate treatment for the last tooth depends on its position as if the tooth is not fully erupted the treatment left is extraction. You can also go for Operculectomy where in the gum over the tooth is removed and the tooth is made cleansable, but there are chances of recurrence.
