  • It looks like that you have an infected tooth. As the tooth was broken, only pain killers will not be effective. For this you have to take the antibiotics and for that you have to go the dentist to get the prescription. Till then you can keep taking pain killers and maintain good oral hygiene and avoid eating from that side.  In this if the dentist can restore it then most probably you will be needing root canal treatment and if it is unrestorable then may be then tooth extraction will be needed.
