Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

You can try to numb the area by using Ice but at some point, you will need to see a Doctor. If the pain is severe, consider going to the ER to get treated. Once there, the Doctor will give you painkillers and then attempt to remove the tooth if needed. Hope this helps you.

All the best.
