When I had my upper wisdom teeth removed, I asked a few other brass player about how the procedure effected them, and what advice they could give me. What they told me was to find a dentist that was - or had experience working on - a brass player(s). Several of them recommended the same dentist, so that's who I used. I was back playing in less than a week. Of course this will depend on the nature of the tooth in question. If it's not through the skin, or if it's impacted, it will require an oral surgeon. Thankfully, that was not the case with me. Good luck!
