Recommended treatment on a tooth will stop dental tooth pain. Please follow the advice of your dentist.
Would need to have it examined to determine the cause of the pain to be sure. If the pain is being caused by a problem In a specific tooth (decay, nerve damage, infection), then yes, extracting the tooth would relieve the pain.
Yes, unless you end up with dry socket or complications leading to infection. Pain that increases post-extraction needs to be checked out with your treating dentist.
