Does your dentist have an answering service or a machine to relay messages to him/her? Most dentists take emergency calls. If not try another dentist...Get a referral from a friend, neighbor, or family member. Or, call your family doctor for a prescription for an antibiotic.

Go to the dental section of a pharmacy and look for a temporay filling material that among its ingredients is ":oil of cloves" or eugenol. If you can get it into the hole it will provide some relief.

Go to hospital or emergency care and ask for pain and antibiotic for your toothache until you can get in to see your dentist.

Your local dental society may have a dentist on call. You may have to get to an emergency depart. At a hospital.
