Hi,any tooth pain must be reported to the dentist immediately. Pain killers and antibiotics give temporary relief. There could be infection due to decay in the tooth that leads to pus formation in the pulp and hence the throbbing pain. The dentist may opt for a root canal treatment or an etraction depending on the severity of the infection. Take care!
