Is this smart fiscal planning? Is Arizona and other states that do not provide emergency tooth pulling akin to the United States becoming a third-rate nation of toothless sick people slowy dying from easily treatable conditions?
You can take an anti-biotic and rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide several times a day but don't do it for more than a couple of days.
The tooth is going to have to be looked at sooner or later. It isn't as expensive as a root canal to pull a tooth so, if you don't have the money, I guess you need to find a friend or relative to borrow the money to do it.
Canada has health care but not for teeth so it's not just a problem in Arizona.
