  • From your symptoms it looks like you have an infected tooth. The infection seems to acute. The tooth cannot be pulled out in this condition. You have to take antibiotics and pain killers tabs and when the swelling subsides you can get it pulled. So visit your dentist and if you donot have insurance you can even go to dental school near your city which have much lesser charges than normal dentist/oral sugeon.
