Thanks for posting your query.
Since the tooth which is mobile is root canal treated,its non vital in nature.
A thorough clinical and radiological evaluation is required for retaining the tooth.
splinting can be done to make the tooth firm again.
If too shaking,it has to be extracted.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Brush your teeth twice daily using soft-bristled toothbrush and dental floss.
Please avoid hot,spicy foods.
Biting on hard objects has to be avoided.
Use chorhexidine mouthrinses to gargle.
Take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

According to your symptoms i suppose that you have developed a periapical infection in the tooth due to which the toot had become loose.
I would suggest you to consult the Dentist get the checkup done, take x-ray of the tooth, drainage of abscess will give pain relief, if indicated you have to go for the extraction of the tooth.
The extracted tooth can be replaced with the help of fixed or removable prosthetic crown.
Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Take lukewarm saline gargles and antiseptic mouthwash rinses.

Hope this helps out.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

Dental pain in an already filled tooth indicates the presence of infection below the filling .

Tooth ache indicates bacterial decay or infection in the tooth that involves the exposed tooth nerve tissues .

such infected tooth needs to be treated by a root canal procedure so please consider getting the treatment done by consulting a dentist.

you may need an OPG radiographic examination done for your teeth to confirm the spread of infection or to rule out the exact cause of the pain and accordingly treatment can be done.

swelling in the gums and pain can be treated by symptomatic treatment.

i would suggest you to go for symptomatic treatment at home like gargling with lukewarm saline water or antiseptic mouthwash like chlorhexidine or betadine.

exact diagnosis can be made only after clinical examination by a dentist and evaluation by taking radiographs.

i hope this helps ,

take care.
