Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do at home except possibly give some aspirin for pain relief. Buffered aspirin can be given to a dog with a dosage of up to 5-10 mg per pound every 12 hours for pain.. Keep in mind that a dog's body does not metabolize aspirin in the same way as a human and thus should not be given more than a day or two without contacting your Vet. The aspirin may need to clear your dog’s system before other medications can be given, so keep that in mind if you decide to give aspirin and be sure and tell your vet when your dog is seen. Read side effects and precautions here.
Most tooth issues should be addressed by your vet and if you plan on having your dog seen fairly quickly, I wouldn't give aspirin. You may be able to get your dog to eat if you switch to a soft food until you can have your dog seen. I wouldn't wait though as tooth infections can spread infection throughout the body and lead to organ dysfunction.
