It needs permanent treatment. No qualified dentist will just prescribe painkillers without actually treating the cause. This will either need a deep filling or a root canal treatment. Please don't take unnecessary pain killers

Throbbing pain can be due to a cavity, tooth fracture, tooth decay or the infection of the tooth and the surrounding gums.
So treatment varies according to the diagnosis. A tooth may need a new restoration, Root canal treatment, deep Scaling or in worst case extraction. So, if you send your x-ray, diagnosis can be made easily and kindly tell is there a history of bleeding gums, pus or infection in a tooth.
Moreover you can use Chlorhexidine mouthwash ( Listerine) and warm saline rinses( if you don't have high blood pressure). It helps to reduce inflammation.
