Hello,

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 when the pulp is involved, then root canal treatment will be a solution. Please share pictures and radiograph of your affected tooth.


The Probable causes:

Tooth sensitivity.

Investigations to be done:

IOPAR related to affected teeth.

Treatment plan:

Restoration or RCT of the affected tooth.
