In brief: See a dentist

Antibiotics will only help control the infection so that a dentist can treat the tooth.
Once infected, treatment is required ASAP to prevent the infection from spreading. How long would you wait to treat a broken arm or a kidney stone? These types of medical conditions require urgent care. Make the call.

In brief: Otc meds

Pain meds may help but the best thing is to get the tooth treated by a dentist.

In brief: Short term

Say thirty days maybe 45 days get an antibiotic from your dentist or md, however this is a one time deal as the infection may become resistant to the antibiotic so when the pain subsides see your dentist and get this treated before it comes back with a vengeance.
