Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My tooth hurts everytime I eat or drink. It feels hot and a sharp pain that does not go away. My gums are swollen.

Please help.

Answered by Dr. Vijeta Singh


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your tooth has sharp pain due to tooth sensitivity (due to enamel erosion). Once you get it treated, pain will subside. If erosion has not involved the pulp then only restoration can help you, or if the pulp is involved, then root canal treatment will be a solution. Please share pictures and radiograph of your affected tooth.

Thank you.

The Probable causes

Tooth sensitivity.

Investigations to be done

IOPAR related to affected teeth.

Treatment plan

Restoration or RCT of the affected tooth.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
