Maybe, maybe not: Can you call your dentist and tell them your situation? I am sure they would be willing to start you on a prescription of antibiotics that would probably make it so you could make it through your travels without any worsening problems. Then you could do something definitive when you were back.

Please go: Why wait? Get the treatment you need. Traveling will be much better as well if you do not have to worry about your teeth.

Infection: Dental pain is a signal that you have an infection, and that the problem is getting serious. The last thing you need is to be away and have an emergency flare-up. Call your dentist to discuss options. Waiting may not be prudent.
