Severe pain in tooth

My father has severe tooth pain. Recently he started using DentASSURE tooth paste and uses neem datun for brushing. Now he had an electric shock like like pain like 440 volts twice or thrice for 4-5 seconds. Could you please advise? He is in Bihar and the medical aid is not that great. He had shown to doctor there in past n found pathetic. He will visit doctor in Bangalore next month. But it's hard to see him in pain n one more month is left to go. Please advise. Thank you!

This type of pain in due to exposure of nerves in tooth. Avoiding brushing will retain more plaque and worsen condition. Oral hygiene needs to be strictly maintained. He can use Colgate pain out gel or simply dab a cotton ball with clove oil over the cut area or insert into cavity. He can use Colgate sensitive pro relief toothpaste for brushing. Brush should be used.
