Brief Answer: A dental examination will be helpful. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, I would advise that you should get a dental examination done. It seems that you might be having caries. Intake of sweet causes pain in the affected tooth. Filling / Root Canal Treatment (RCT) may be needed to cure your symptoms. Avoid those food items which increase the pain. Also maintain good oral hygiene. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Thanks.
