If in serious pain... find the nearest walk in NHS centre. They should be able to offer antibiotics until you see a dentist.
A pharmacy will be able to supply painkillers. If you are not asthmatic or allergic to Ibuprofen, I recommend a mix of Solpadeine max(Paracetamol and codeine) up to eight a day,and Nurofen Plus (Ibuprofen and codeine) up to six a day.
Do not mix with alcohol,and as they are likely to make you woozy do not even consider driving on this combination.
Best of luck.
Clove oil contains a local anaesthetic , also there are mouth gels containg Lidocaine that you can rub in the area to numb it.(Anbesol or oragel)
