Hi there. For now you need to take an over the counter pain killer. But I would advise you not to ignore the tooth for long and get the treatment done as soon as possible. At the same time, also get your complete dental checkup done so that such emergencies don't occur next time.

yes you can take analgesic (pain killer) but only for short period of time. Because if there is cavity as you are saying in tooth so then there is a high chance of spreading infection deeper in the tooth. So immediately go to dentist for proper treatment.
