A broken tooth can cause pain due to a big cavity or a sharp edge from the broken part of the tooth or a cracked filling. Professional care is needed to resolve this type of issue however you can try dental wax from your local pharmacy placed over the sharp edge until you get to the dentist. Also, over the counter pain medicine should provide some pain relief.
