This can cause pain due to a severe cavity or a sharp edge from the broken tooth or filling. Professional care is needed but if you need immediate relief you can try dental wax or putty to cover the sharp edge and tooth ache drops, anbasol, in the case of a cavity until you can get into the dentist. Pain medicine as above can be used as well.
