In brief: RCT

Get root canal therapy for that tooth asap! the only thing you can do in the meantime is take some otc pain medication.

In brief: Two options only

1. Root canal treatment save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it.
2. Tooth extraction is the complete removal of a tooth from the jaw bone. Once you have irreversible pulpitis, there's no reversible cure.
