Dental cavity

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....

You will need an RCT+cap or an extraction both of which will sort out your pain as well as the the issue of the sharp edge.

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.

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.
