If you feel you require antibiotics then you have several options:

Call your GP who may prescribe

Go to your local Urgent Care Centre who will treat you on the same day

Call you local dentist who may be able to help

Call 111 who can advise on dentists that are open local to you

Go to the NHS website and you can contact a dentist from there

I hope this helps and I wish you well with your recovery
