In brief: Dr.

Dr. Mcleod is right.
There is nothing that you can do at home. In addition, going to the emergency room just wastes previous tax dollars. Please go see your dentist, or go to the many free clinics, or hospitals residencies out there. The resources are there. You just have to go... Best wishes, dr. Zev kaufman.

Ibuprofen can help a tad, but truthfully nothing significant can be done without a dentist.
