Suggest treatment for Abscessed tooth

I have an abscess tooth it is broken below my gum line and I am having a tingly sensation in my scalp, and stiffness in my neck. Two days ago it felt as of my brain were on fire. I am going to the dentist in February but I need to know if this is an emergency room trip situation and what will they do. My teeth are in horrible shape. 2 broken ones in the front and almost all of my molars are broken.
I don't know if it is needed information but the hospital I will go to is a naval hospital. I know eh do things differently there.
