It seems that she has deep cavity there. If she has pain associated, she probably will need root canal treatment with that tooth. She will probably need crown/ cap on that tooth after root canal treatment.

First of all this condition is known as cervical abrasion and it is due to bridk brushing so first tell your mother to use soft bristles toothbrush secondly it has involved the pulp of the tooth so better get it treated

Hi, what she is suffering from is a decay which has involved the pulp of the tooth ( the nerve) that's why she is having pain and is difficult to bite...an x Ray will make things more clear but what I see clinically and the history as given by you....she will need a Root Canal Treatment for the same....and that should relieve her from this pain. Regards, Dr. Vishal
