I have been experiencing pain in my right facial area around all the teeth off and on for a week or so thought it was associated with a Tonsil Stone that I had at the time. Now the pain seems to be centered on one tooth that I broke awhile back and haven't had the money to fix. The tooth hurts to apply pressure or bite down. Sometimes severe sometimes not so much. The pain seems to come and go, and is easily relieved by 2 Ibuprofen. I can feel my pulse in the tooth after biting down or applying pressure. There is no fever, no swelling, no sensitivity to hot or cold, but the pain can get quite severe with pressure at times. I am trying to figure out if this is an abscess or just a deep cavity. I am not doing that well financially and I am mostly trying to determine if this is something I can deal with on a routine appt that I have coming in about a month or something I need to find a way to go ASAP. Thanks.
