Vet says cat's tooth extraction surgery will be difficult and painful. Is it worth it?

My friend says:
I'm worried about our cat. He's becoming a recluse and not eating well lately. Vet says he needs to have a couple of teeth pulled, but it's a brutal surgery. Cat teeth shatter when pulled so it's x-ray, dig for shards, x-ray, dig, etc. and a painful recovery. Have any of you ever had to do this? Would you put a cat through this? I could use some advice or more likely my cat needs me to get advice.
The cat is 10 years old.
