Hi there ..,visit a nearby dentist ASAP for a proper diagnosis with xray... You might be having secondary infection w.r.t that tooth and need a root canal treatment for that ... Take care ...!!

You need to visit a dentist who will take an x-ray and determine the depth of cavity ..if decĂ y is involving the pulp of your teeth as you are saying that there is pain..you will need to undergo root canal treatment and then cap the teeth .this way u can save your natural teeth..
