In brief: Talk to your dentist

The pain in the gums associated with the tooth that has decay can be related to a number of causes, including a possible infection.
Many offices offer payment options and can discuss them with you before proceeding with treatment.

In brief: See a periodontist.

The dental medicine is very specialised now.
You can start with your dentist or you can see a perodontist who specilises in gum disease.
