    for these kind of pain you need to visit the dentist, who perform a procedure called as root canal treatment.
    R.C.T is usually a three visit procedure in which a hole is drilled into your teet in the first visit itself to gain access to the nerves and a pain relieving dressing is placed usually formocresol this step is known as access opening.
    pain is relieved in first visit itself.]
