See Dentist: Considering your level of trauma, you should be examined by your Dentist who can prescribe antibiotics if indicated. In the meantime Advil (as per pkg directions), salt water rinses (ask your Dentist how to do this), and dab Orabase-B (not plain Orabase) onto sore spot. But most of all, call your Dentist.
