Hello The symptoms of having tooth pain especially on having high temperature food items clearly indicate that there is some infection or decay in the tooth that has reached the nerves of the tooth. Now depending whether it is a wisdom tooth or not the treatment would be decided. If it is the last tooth in the jaw that is a wisdom tooth that has not erupted completely or is tilted it will require extraction. If it is any other tooth or a wisdom tooth that has erupted completely and is straight, then it can be saved by root canal treatment and capping. It is better if you attach some photographs or X-rays for a better clarity.

Any severe pain due to hot food or fluids suggest broken tooth portion extending till nerve region (pulp region) of the tooth or tooth decay touching the nerve region of the tooth. Firstly, I will ask you to check for below things - 1. Is it sensitivity or pain that you are having - plz differentiate. If it is pain, chances of decay or tooth breakage has touched the nerve region is high. 2. Does the pain or sensitivity last for few seconds or gets prolonged till many minutes or hours  - If sensitivity is only for few seconds, it can be cured with filling, if not it will need root canal treatment.
Next Steps
Plz visit a dentist and get it diagnosed at the earliest.
Health Tips
if you delay visiting a dentist,  you may miss the chance of getting cured with a filling and will surely need root canal treatment.
