You can contact a telemedicine doctor. Maybe you can benefit from antibiotics while waiting to get to a dentist. I would plan to make arrangements to see a dentist

At 18 your third molars [WISDOM TEETH] are naturally erupting and causing this natural event. Keep area clean and rinse with warm or mildly hot salt water .Use any mild pain reliever you can obtain in the OUTBACK and watch the area to see if the tooth erupts more and eventually see a DENTIST.
