There is no reason anything should hurt in dentistry.  We have pain and anxiety control techniques that are awesome.

I would suggest seeing a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. They are experts at wisdom tooth and broken tooth removal and should be able to offer you options for sedation so the experience will be as pleasant as possible.
