sir if your decay had touched the root portion means there is no option for filling once again . you have to go for root canal treatment only no other option for this . kindly go ahead without delaying otherwise it will get infected. thank you.

Pain usually indicates the nerve is involved. An X-ray can be done to confirm diagnosis. Mostly a root canal will be required and then restoration with a crown
