You can go for a root canal treatment .if possible .if xray shows that tooth can be saved.
Dear Lybrate user, you have infection in your painful tooth. You should take an IOPA of painful tooth. After IOPA it will be clear that your tooth can be save by RCT or not. If your tooth is in good condition it can be save by RCT & infection will be cure. But if your tooth is grossly decayed or root stump and in poor condition you should extract your tooth. Thalassemia will not cause any difficulty.
