Brief Answer:
Please upload scans of x ray.

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Thanks for writing to us..

If your wife is having toothache and it is due to decay then it is most probably due to decay reaching the nerves present in the centre of the tooth.

In that case Root Canal Treatment is the best and only option to get permanent relief from pain.
It also saves the tooth..

Please upload scans of x ray of her teeth so that I can further have a look and guide you accordingly..

Hope this information helps..

Regards..
