Take 400 mg of oral ibuprofen every 6 hours for pain. Also, you can get Oragel and place. Drop on the open cavity. After doing that, if you can see a hole in the tooth, you can place some orthodontic wax in the hole to help hold you over until next week.

Buy some orthodontic wax at any drug store roll a small bead of wax about the size of the hole and press the wax into the hole to cover it until you get to the dentist.
