I had the same problem. I don't have a solution as to how to get dental work done that is affordable however, I do have a temporary solution for the pain. Take a Q-tip and dip it in to ordinary household clorox bleach. Make it so it is not dripping but be sure it is wet. Take the Q-tip and place it on the area that hurts and exert mild pressure. Your pain should go away immediately. I know it sounds crazy but it works! Someone told me about it and I suffered for three days before I finally tried it ..... and the relief was immediate! I would rather be in labor than have a pain like that again.
As for the other....go to the medical clinic and get a prescription for antibiotics...you will need to get rid of the infection before the tooth can be pulled and that will get rid of the pain. Then you can focus on getting dental care. If you can't go to the doctor then go to the emergency room of the local hospital. All public hospitals have to take you whether or not you have insurance. They also have a charity program you can apply for to take care of the bill if you have no insurance. When you get to the emergency room ask to see the social worker. She can give you an application. If you can't see her....go to the accounting office during the day and they can give you the application.
Good Luck...and...Try it I promise you it works!
