Well today he has been in almost constant pain, crying on and off. So I called his dentist and said IDK if it's a cavity or what but he needs an appointment. The soonest they could see him was a week from today. I made that appointment, but now the more I look at it, it looks swollen all around his back two teeth on that side and we have to keep putting Orajel on or he cries it hurts so much.
So I don't know if this is something ER-worthy, or if I call the dentist first thing in the AM if they will squeeze him in, or what. I've heard horror stories about tooth infections getting into the bloodstream and causing major problems, so I'm a little paranoid because of the swelling. :(
