Brief Answer:
yes, diclofenac will help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.

The pain in the lower front teeth can be because of the gum infection or tooth infection.

Nothing to be panicked about, consult a oral physician and get it evaluated, You need to get a radiograph done to confirm the diagnosis.

Mean while, If i am your treating doctor, i would have suggested you to take a course of antibiotics like amoxicillin (if you are not allergic) and an analgesic like diclofenac. Once the diagnosis is confirmed we can treat accordingly with scaling or root canal treatment. Do saline gargling.

This is the possible diagnosis and treatment plan based on your description of the lesion. If you can upload the images of the teeth in question, i can give you exact diagnosis and treatment plan.

I hope my answer will help you, take care.
If any queries are there, reply me back.

Brief Answer:
Gum infection, scaling, orthodontic treatment

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your reply and the images.

As per the images you have uploaded, it is because of the gum infection. The gums and the bone around the teeth are getting damaged because of the mal aligned teeth and the deep bite which is resulting in abnormal distribution of forces over the lower teeth.

The white liquid coming from the inner aspect of the teeth is nothing but the pus discharge secondary to gum infection.

So consult a oral physician and get it evaluated. Along with the above said medicines you need to take metronidazole which is effective in gum infection.

Later get the teeth treated with scaling and root planing. The mal alignment of the teeth can be treated with braces or orthodontic treatment.

I hope my answer will help you. Take care.
