I got a cavity last year. I have left it untreated. It hurt really bad a year ago and stopped, but is not occurring again. I have not gone to the dentist because I do not want to make my parents spend the money. So, I have just been dealing with it. But it hurts really bad. Is there anything I can do?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. For time being, you can get the pain relief from this infectious tooth. Take the following medication tablet Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid 625 twice daily for five days. Ketorol DT, only if the pain is there. But, your real problem is acute pulpitis because of an exposed cavity. It will be causing recurrent infections if you will not treat it. For treatment, get a root canal treatment done as soon as possible otherwise you may need to get it removed with a year or so.
