You probably need prescribed pain killer such as vicodin or codeine+ acetaminophen.It appears root canal treatment is not completed yet. Once root canal treatment is completed, the pain generally disappears.If there is extensive fracture and rescue of tooth is not possible, extraction is indicated.
