As soon as possible visit your dentist. He will take an x-ray to determine the condition. If the cavity is deep he will ask you to go for root canal treatment, if the cavity is shallow he will remove the affected tissue and restore it with a filling material.
If you have started to experience pain it is an indication that the decay has gone deep and is either close or involves the pulpal tissues. So I recommend you to kindly visit your dentist and have his opinion.

Go for root canal treatment to save the tooth or else you can go for extraction. But rct treatment is better option.
