Hello, i've had a cavitie for a long time and never treated it and recently i've had pain in the same tooth. My jaw also hurts sometimes but the pain comes and goes. Usually duirng the day when i'm either at school or just out and about i don't feel any pain, sometimes even when eating it's as if there's nothing wrong, but mostly during the evening and indoors the pain comes back. Do i have an abscess or could it be something less serious. Also when i drink the pain seems to be relieved for a very short period of time.
