  • You should not pull it yourself as part of the tooth can remain inside and that can lead to infection. Moresoever as you are diabetic, it has to be done under proper coverage of antibiotic as diabetics are more prone to infection and if left unattended it can lead to dry socket which is very painful condition. So in my opinion you should not delay the things and get the needful done by visiting the dentist asap.
