Unbearable tooth pain
My wife had sever tooth pain. Earlier she was having root canal of a tooth. Then she got issue of Satan till the base of that tooth. Then with the dentists consultation we decided to remove that. After removing that doctor got that it has an adjacent tooth which has a cavity and that cavity needs to filled. After filling that cavity now she is having more pain and the painkiller is also not working. Earlier when cavity was open the painkillers were used to work on that pain. But now no relief. I consultated this with ENT specialist and he said that it is not an ear issue. It is your tooth issue. Please suggest

In such instances if you could find time to post or upload a pic of an X-ray(preferably panoramic radiograph or commonly called OPG) it would help other cinicians to give a reliable opinion.

There is a possibility the extraction site may be infected and the other tooth had a deep cavity approaching the nerve . Acombination of the two things may be causing her unbearable pain and discomfort. Get an Endodontist to see her, followed by radiographs and precise diagnosis.

Hi.. X ray is recommended in this case. Most probably the tooth that has been filled also has a deep cavity requiring a root canal or the extraction that has been done was a traumatic one. She can take Ketorol-DT two tablets in half glass of water after food and then one tablet each after every meal for two days. Consult dentist to initiate treatment ASAP. Regards

Most likely issue is that the tooth which has been filled requires a treatment. Iopa Xray will only help in such cases
