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 decày 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..
