welcome to HCM
I went through your history & gives an indication towards irreversible pulpitis of associated tooth.
It refers that your tooth decay has progressed towards pulp.
Without further delay you should go for an IOPAR of associated & start with proper treatment.
It might be cured by Indirect Pulp Capping if decay is not that deep otherwise it may involve root canal treatment.
Meanwhile you can start with amoxiclav combination along with diclomol.
But these medicines will offer just temporary relief.
Maintain proper oral hygiene to prevent caries in other teeth.
Thanks for writing to us.
Treatment includes :-
Use a floss to remove any particle lodged between teeth
Take a pain relieving tablet
Apply benzocaine containing antiseptic
Applying clove oil also might help
Brush teeth after every meal
Visit your dentist twice a year
Avoid smoking as it worsens dental conditions
Eat a balanced meal with reduced starch/sugar content
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
THANKS FOR ASKING QUERY ,
According to your explanation it seems that your having irreversible pulpitis.It is a persistent inflammatory condition of the pulp caused by noxious stimulus.
Pain is sharp , piercing, shooting, aggravated by heat and relieved by cold.
I suggest you to visit the dentist and get the radio graph done to know the exact condition.It can be corrected by the root canal treatment of the tooth.
hope this will help you.
Thanks for writing in.
I read your problem,i would like to tell you that there could be following possibilities-
1.Deep caries in the tooth of that region.
2.Filling which expand on having something hot.
3.Deep cervical caries.etc........
So i will suggest you visit an endodontist in your area as soon as possible and get the thorough clinical examination done including x-rays and take a proper treatment.
For permanent treatment i will suggest you if there is deep carious tooth/teeth you need to go for root canal treatment.
Nothing to get worried.
THANKS FOR WRITING IN HCM.
AS YOUR PAIN AGGRAVATES DURING HOT BEVERAGES, PUPAL TISSUES MAY INVOLVED.
I ADVISED YOU TO GO FOR RADIO GRAPH FOR THE AFFECTED AREA , TO KNOW THE EXACT EXTENT OF INVOLVEMENT.
U HAVE TAKEN MEDICINES , BUT THOSE WILL HELP TEMPORARILY.
FOR PERMANENT CURE U WILL HAVE TO GO FOR RCT THAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT OR PULP CAPPING AS PER RADIO GRAPH RESULT.
KEEP THE AFFECTED AREA CLEAN .
RINSING WITH MOUTHWASH DAILY WILL HELP TO MAINTAIN ORAL HYGIENE.
IF ANY QUERY REGARDING THIS , WRITE US BACK.
WE WILL BE GLAD TO HELP YOU OUT.

Hi, Welcome to HCM forum, Pain due to intake of hot coffee/tea means that infection has reached the pulp. Consult a dentist for radiographical examination. Permanent treatment for this is root canal treatment in which the infected pulp will be extirpated and canals are cleaned followed by filling. Follow antibiotic coverage and get your examination done soon so that swelling may not occur due to periapical abscess. Take care
your question projects that you are having pulpal pain in your right lower teeth. Pulpal pain refers to pain occuring in pulpal tissues which are supplied by nerves and thus when tooth is infected because of caries (tooth decay), if not cured or filled at earlier stage , decay leads into pulpal tissue of the tooth thus causing pain.
Get a IOPA( x-ray) done and root canal treatment will be the only permanent cure for your pain. Medicine will temporarily slow down the pain for sometime.
Do you have fillings in these teeth? If you do, the heat may be causing pain because the fillings expand and contract different than your teeth and may cause pain.
You may have root exposure and have sensitivity from this. Try Sensodyne toothpaste. You have to brush with it for 2-4 weeks twice a day before it really starts to work. Brush for two minutes, floss your teeth and spit out the excess toothpaste. Do not rinse your mouth out, eat or drink for a half hour. See if this helps.
What was the medicine given to you by the dentist?
The only permanent cure from tooth pain is root canal therapy, however this is not suggested unless causing undue distress in your life and other less invasive options have been exhausted.
hello and thanks for query, your tooth must be decayed and there is irreversible pulpitis in it. you first get it examined by a dental surgeon and get an x ray done for that region.it can be cured by root canal therapy and restoring it permanently with crown.do not ignore it get it treated as soon as possible. regards
hello recurrent pain and specifically pain when when you take something hot refers to exposure of your pulp so what i would advise is that you visit your dentist and get a radiograph done and if the pulp is exposed and the tooth is savable than get a root canal treatment and capping done.that will permanently save you from pain and discomfort hope this helps
its clearly the case of irreversible pulpitis , so without wasting any of your time , get rct done of the concerned teeth. within 2-3 appointments , you will be over with it.
wishing you speedy recovery
hiiii, I have gone through the information provided by you. Recurrent pain suggest that your tooth is having either a cavity or exessive attrition of the tooth which has given entry for infection to reach upto the pulp tissue of the tooth. tooth pulp is located a the center of tooth. on coming to contact with hot drinks it is elevating the pain. you should have x-ray done for conforming the damage to the pulp and if your dentist find the damage can be reversed then he will suggest you the fiiling to the tooth or if the decay is deep he would suggest you the pulp removal and filling of the canal ( RCT treatment). followed by cap on your tooth. This only be the definite treatment and will give you permanent relief. the medications can only provide you the temporary cure for this.
hi welcome to HCM As u have mentioned that pain start with hot beverages indicates pulpitis that is pulp is inflamed in relation to that tooth. so without wasting any more time immediately go and consult any dentist get an x-ray done. Then treatment can be planned according to extent of pulp involvement i.e. if decay has just started approaching pulp then it can be treated with pulp capping. And if pulp involvement is more then get root canal done in relation to that tooth followed by course of antibiotic and analgesic. take care
helllo.. thanks for your query. Recurrent pain on having hot drinks may be either due to reversible pulpitis or due to sensitivity. Pulpitis basically means the part of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels is infected because of progression of dental caries within the pulp. Visit to an endodontist and get an IOPAR done for the confirmed diagnosis The line of treatment would be a root canal treatment If there is no dental caries then sensitivity could be the reason for your recurrent pain..try using desensitizing tooth paste such as vantage which will give you relief. also it is advisable if you consult a dentist for the final diagnosis and treatment...take care..
firstly elaborate ur history. is there any deep cavities in ur teeth.according to ur history it is an chronic pulpitis. may be coz of deep dental caries or cracked tooth. for diagnosis n treatment go to ur dentist as soon as possible. REGARDS DR. BHAVIN
it seems that your teeth is sensitive it may be because of attrition, caries or some times may be because of problems in gum. so you should go to the dental surgeon for treatment but in the mean time you should take preventive measure like thermoseal toothpaste avoid taking hot and cold drink and if very necessary take doxycycline 1 tab twice a day metrogyl i tab three time a day and dolonex i tab sos when needed.
