Find a new dentist: Ur pain is gone because the crown part of the tooth broke and tooth was infected and partially dead. The roots are still in the bone and eventhoughnit does not hurt is still infected and you don't want infected part in your jaw bone. Might need to get it extracted. Find a new dentist who can fit you in soon.

Keep dental appt: Even though the pain is gone a dental problem still remains. Their may be some tooth remaiing in your mouth. Keep your appt , call another dentist or just show up at the dental office and wait to be seen if the pain returns.

Get a new dentist !!: First of all get a new dentist. There is no excuse for not being able to get an emergency in within a reasonable amount of time. Have your new dentist evaluate the area where the tooth fell out to see if any residual tooth structure or cystic lesion is present. Also have him do a full mouth exam to avoid this problem in the future.
