Doctor :   ok
User :   There was a cavity and now it started paining
Doctor :   From when is it paining.
User :   3 days
Doctor :   Does it hurt when you eat hot or cold items.
User :   actually it was earlier filled permanently with cement
User :   and came out last week
User :   earlier there was no pain but eventually it started
Doctor :   Ok, i think it is better to clear the infection and then fill it.
User :   And it dont feel sensitivity to hot/cold
User :   Do i need to have some medicine to clear the infection or shall I visit dentist to clear it off
Doctor :   ok, but if pain is there then you need to clear it. Filling it without clearing will cause swelling and spread of infection.
Doctor :   you need to be started on antibiotics, so you have to visit dentist
User :   can you suggest any antibiotic for now?
Doctor :   After the antibiotics you can get it cleaned. I cannot suggest any antibiotics since it needs to be shown.You can take a mild pain killer as of now.
