I am having a cavity in my molar (last from lower jaw) from past few months.
I was also suffering from a shooting pain (2-3 times a week) but due to fear never turned to a dentist.
Suddenly today, when I was having a biscuit a small part of that infected tooth got broken and got mixed with the chewings.
I want to know what treatment I require, as after that small part broke, the remaining tooth is now having a sharp edge which is irritating me.

This problem has occurred because you neglected the symptoms for a very long time..... clinical examination and x-ray will be required to ascertain the present condition of the tooth, whether it can be saved or not..... if possible, do try to save the tooth by undergoing root canal treatment followed by a cap...... otherwise extraction is always an option as the last resort.... Regards....
Hello..As you complained of pain, decay might have progressed to vital tissue.you may get root canal treatment followed by crown or extraction done after proper clinical examination.sharp edge has to be smoothened as it may lead to ulcer in tongue.kindly visit dentist as soon as possible.
Dear Practo User,
A thorough clinical examination is required before a final treatment plan is made. With the description you provided, it looks like you would be needing a root canal treatment or extraction based on the condition of remaining tooth.
Kindly visit a dental surgeon nearby.

First of all rush to your dentist and get trimmed that sharp part to avoid further injury to your chick/tongue, and these days dental treatments are done with fine instruments with little or no pain (that to done under local anaesthesia) so don't worry about the pain part, later your doctor will guide you about the further treatment depends upon the condition of remaining part of the tooth(root canal,extraction or filling with composites)
so get your dental checkup faster asap.
You can have either your Root canal treatment done followed by ceramic capping or get the tooth extracted. Thanks
