In brief: Don't try

Don't try to guess what treatment would be indicated or needed.
You'll find out soon enough once your dentist takes some x-rays and clinically examines your tooth.

In brief: Visit The Dentist

There is a strong link between good oral health and a person’s overall well being.
Visiting your dentist twice a year will help make your teeth healthy.

In brief: A few ideas

Root canal treatment usually for decay that is close or into nerve of tooth.
Extraction for non-restorable tooth, or when cost of restoration is prohibitive.
