Hi Billy, So sorry you're having this issue. Unfortunate timing with it being the weekend. You should see your dentist to see if there is an infection or abscess. Some dentists are willing to prescribe an antibiotic when the office is closed then follow up with an exam during office hours.

If your pain worsens or you have a lot of swelling you may want to go to an urgent care center over the weekend.

Thanks for writing,
