Hi,
It looks like you have an infected tooth which has resulted in the pain. A decayed tooth might have resulted in the pain.The tooth must be root canal treated or removed to resolve the problem permanently. Pain killers are only a temporary solution.

Hello,
consult a dentist and get an xray of the tooth done. Pain may be due to caries. The tooth may need root canal treatment or extraction depending on the condition. Try to avoid self medication.
Take care!

tooth pain is because of caries...go for check up...if it is due to caries go for filling...if it is due to sensitivity then go for scaling or use sensodyne tooth paste...

Hi, take an X ray of the tooth and consult a good dentist. Pain may be due to decay. The inflamed pulp causes a pressure build up which leads to severe pain. The tooth may need root canal treatment or extraction depending on the condition. Take care!

tooth ache is due to decayed tooth, how many times do yu brush your teeth. its good to brush the teeth 2 times a day. even flossing every week is helpful after having non veg food.
