From the images attached (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity), it is suggestive of secondary caries or broken filling. Take an X-ray and do a root canal treatment if possible and replace it with a crown. If it is grossly decayed then it is better to extract the tooth. I suggest antibiotics to prevent infection.
1. I suggest capsule Novamox LB (Amoxicillin) 500 mg thrice daily for three days.
2. I suggest tablet Combiflam (Ibuprofen and Paracetamol) 400 mg thrice daily for three days.
3. I suggest tablet Flagyl (Metronidazole) 400 mg thrice daily for three days.
