Hi.. Visit a dentist ASAP. She might need a re-root canal or extraction. For time being give her Tab. Tolpa-D three times daily after food for three days. Regards

Hi. Could be a fracture of the teeth/root which is RC treated. X rays will be compulsory. Don't give her unnecessary pain killers. Get the tooth treated.
