Just extract my tooth!

"I know its bad Doc. Just pull it out. I can take it."

I hear things like this all the time. 
People come in thinking that its the end of the world.
They think that they are a lost cause.
Truth, usually, is that things aren't even that bad.

Take this case for instance.
Corner broken off of a top lateral incisor. 

Not only did we not pull it but we didn't even crown it.
We simply numbed that patient. 
Removed any decay and then placed a filling.

Chances are, its going to be okay.
