You can get root canal opening done ..to reduce the pain .. and should take medicines for next three days ...
Good evening mam! First we should see the extension of your cavity, if it is less you can go for filling or else you can go for RCT (Root Canal Treatment) to save your tooth. Its better to consult a dentist nearby you. Thank you.
Get an X-ray done, I think you may need a root canal treatment to save the tooth.
