Malavex thanks for the question. First off stop the anbesol it will provide little relief. Try taking 800mg of Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) every 6 hours. Taking this regularly will help some with the inflammation. You can also try taking a regular tea bag and boil it in water for 2 minutes. Let cool, repeat let cool (put in refrigerator or freezer until it is no longer hot) then put over the tooth and bite down. It doesn't have to be real hard pressure, just enough to squish the tea. Leave for about 10 minutes. The tea has a special acid in it that can sometimes provide limited relief. Other than that, you can call you medical doctor or dentist if you have a regular doctor you see. They may be able to call you in some pain meds or antibiotics to cover you over the weekend. Most importantly you need to see a dentist, even if the pain goes away. It will return and usually it is worse the next time. Not only is the pain worse, but now the bacteria may become resistant to the antibiotic.
Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.
