    Woke up a few mornings ago with extreme pain coming from my left side
    lower second premolar bicuspid. It was very painful to touch and I had
    this numbness in my cheek, chin and lip on my left side. Now a few
    days and many Ibuprofin painkillers later the pain has subsided but
    the numbness is still there. I'm guessing I have some kind of
    infection and tooth abscess. Ive had trouble with this tooth beside
    the first molar over the last year often getting alot of pain before I
    removed food particles that always wedged between the two teeth. Now I
    see this tooth has chipped or decayed on the side near the first
    molar, looks like half the tooth is missing and an exposed nerve,
    although I cannot see any cavities, and the pain doesnt always happen
    when I chew or eat cold or hot food, beverages, etc. The tooth doesnt
    look rotten, but should I have it pulled, restored or root canal?,
    will the numbness go away? thanks

    Get yourself to a dentist ASAP and get this fixed. It would be foolish to
    try to diagnosis this over the internet.

    Dental emergency, pal. Pain is a warning that means "get your ass to a
    dentist right fucking now".

    You need to go see a dentist and follow through recommended treatment.
    This waiting may have resulted in irreversible nerve damage.
