Brief Answer:
Dental pain can be seen at urgent care centers

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting HCM with your health care concerns.

You are having severe tooth pain and facial swelling from an infected tooth. you need to be seen for treatment of the infection and to get adequate pain control. You can be seen at any urgent care centers or walk in centers.. An ER is too expensive and they do not find tooth pain or infection as something they treat.
There should be plenty of urgent care centers in the XXXXXXX area

I hope I answered your question. Please contact HCM again with your health care concerns and questions.
