Dear lybrate-user it depends on the signs and symptoms. If you are having pain on the particular tooth especially while eating, general pain on the particular side of jaw, feeling hot and cold on the particular side, x ray of the tooth shows deep decay and an exposed nerve, you should go for rct.
Treatment dental pain
teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma.
If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist.
If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth.
If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.
