Welcome to HCM
I would like to suggest you that its better to get your RCT started as soon as possible before it progress to abscess formation.Later you will experience severe pain & inflammation in that area along with fever.Its better to get an appointment earlier.
You may take Tab Amclaid twice a day along with Tab Zerodol-P thrice a day. Along with that take antacid & multivitamin therapy.

Take Care

You can wait for RCT for 2 months as long as you can tolerate the pain and discomfort. However, there are some signs of progression of infection in case of dental caries which you will have to be aware of. These signs are: Sever pain, swelling, lymph node enlargement (pain and discomfort in the neck, you can feel some lumps in the neck), and fever. If you have any of these symptoms, you have to consult your dentist again and start the RCT at the earliest.

this depends upon the severity of the pain and irritation. you can keep it to late for one month if you follow few precautions , try to avoid extreme cold and extreme hot, do not chew on that particular side, and use sensodyne-f tooth paste for the sensitivity relief. also for the time being you can use an anti sensitivity mouth wash . regards.
