Pain in tooth may be due to cavitation. Restore the tooth as early as possible. As you are young and you have the problem of irregular pattern of placement of teeth in your oral cavity, go for orthodontic treatment which will bring your teeth in proper alignment and create a good smile.
The toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being:
1. Tooth decay
2. Tooth fracture
3. A damaged filling
4. Infected gums
the most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct.
Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. Send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem. I will also be able to check the order/alignment of your teeth.
Hoe that helps.
