See your Dentist: And get diagnosed then either fill or have root canal therapy. It is always better to save the tooth if possible rather than have it extracted.

Toothache: See your dentist and they will make a diagnosis and get you out of pain. If you have no contraindications , some over the counter medications such as Ibuprofen may be helpful for temporary relief.

Heat & Ibuprofen: Ibuprofen should help alleviate the pain. The dosing depends on age/weight. Don't take if on blood thinners, pregnant, kidney, liver problems or questionably allergic without discussing with your doctor. Local heat and saltwater rinses might be helpful. If one sees redness or swelling around the base of the tooth contact a dentist asap as it might indicate an abscess.

I'm certain: That your dentist should accommodate you on the same day for your true dental emergency. If he / she cannot, then consider finding another dentist. With that said, many people call with an emergency, and when we give them a time - that is not convenient. So those we consider selective emergencies or emergencies of convenience. But for a true emergency, you should be seen right away. Hope this.
