Hi..its still a case of root canal. Don't delay more and wait for pain to come again. It would affect success rate of root canal. Visit your dentist and start the treatment. Regards

If that cavity is deep, u will surely need root canal treatment.Only filling may cause you pain. U can get another X ray done just to confirm

Root canal is needed, still get another xray done and a 2nd opinion will help.
