A.Oral health expert
Pain on hot food/drinks usually idicates that the nerve of the tooth is affected and will probably need a root canal treatment done on it. Using painkillers will not solve the problem as the cause of the pain will not be treated. It is possible that you will get an infection if this is not seen to. You need to see a dentist urgently.
