Tooth Extraction?

Tooth #20 has become a problem. It has cracked out the back and has a large filling which is loose. It has also had a root canal done a very long time ago. Many dentists have told me it should come out. I am frightened out of my wits. I am so worried about the pain, possibility of swelling and bleeding. I truly do not know what to do with myself. There are other complicating problems. I was hoping if the tooth is extracted, an implant, even a very small one, can be placed to close the space. My teeth are not straight. I was not a candidate for braces because the molar in back of tooth #20 is fused to my jawbone. Is there anyone out there that can help me? I have not eaten on that side of my mouth for over 9 months. I am located in Central NJ. A million thanks.
