How to relieve the pressure in a broken tooth?

I haven't been to the dentist in a long time, and I had a tooth that broke and I didn't go in to get it fixed yet and it has been six months. Now the tooth is broken to the gum and is brown. I have a lot of pressure in my tooth, and suggestions for immediate relief?

Hello, Welcome Thanks for consulting HCM,

I have gone through your query, as you have mentioned that you have broken tooth now you feel pressure and pain dont worry you do is visit dentist and go for investigations IOPA xray if it can be saved then go for ROOT CANAL TREATMENT and capping if it cannot be saved then go for Extraction (removal) of tooth

For temporary relief you go Warm saline gargle two - three times a day
You can take pain killer for temporary relief one tablet Combiflame twice daily for 3 days

Hope this will help you.
Wishing you good health .
