X ray is advised. Most probably the tooth will go in the root canal treatment.

Seems like there is some sort of a swelling in the bone over the tooth. Is the tooth decayed? How and when did the pain start? How has it changed, if at all, since then? Another possibility is a fractured tooth. Treatment will depend upon the condition of the tooth. Either RCT with or without a Post an core, or extraction. The decision can be made between you and your dentist after a thorough evaluation. Kindly do see your dentist at the earliest. You do not need to endure the pain.

Painful tooth can be very frustrating and distracting. Pain could be a sign of either infection or a fracture of the tooth. You need to visit your dentist ASAP. He will take an x ray for the tooth and determine the cause after which he could explain the treatment required. Please do visit on an urgent basis as the saying goes "a stitch in time saves nine, so is true for dental treatment too.

Canine is a important tooth and takes a lot of force during chewing even if you don't chew from it. It's better to show your dentist and take an xray. Basically it guides the lower jaw during chewing from left side

Hi . Probably you have a crack in the tooth that opens up exposing the inner nerves leading to pain and it is relieved when the pressure is taken off. You must see a dentist at the earliest to sort this problem as conservatively as possible before its too late. Cheers

An x ray needs to be taken. Your tooth probably has an infection that needs root canal treatment and you may also need a gum treatment to clear of the infection in the adjacent gums and bone.
