Unhappy Part of tooth came off, dentist put in temp filling :S

Well i haven't been to a dentist in some years, and i was planning on going next week as I've had some small chips and some sensitivity. Any who i was eating dinner last night and felt something hard, but didn't take much notice of it, just thought it was a hard bit of food, anyway as i was licking my back molars i noticed a gap, looked in the mirror and one of the four corners of my molar had come out 0.o and had some dark bits in it, Anyway i made an out of hours appt at a local dentists (not my own) and she said it was decay, she prodded inside it and it hurttttt! (im guessing exposed nerve?) anyway she has put on a temporary white filling, and said i need a permanent one, but what about the decay? what's going to happen? won't it just keep growing underneath? I had the temp filling in this morning, since the tooth broke i've had some throbbing pain in my gum above it and i would of thought it would be okay to eat some yogurt but that made it a bit more sore, after she prodded it it's been even more sore now lol. so not really sure on what's going to happen :S

Yes, you need a permanent filling. However, the decay should not progress much within the next few days. Call your dentist tomorrow and make an appointment to have the proper repair done.
