Just Answer is for information.  Sorry but we don’t have the ability to make appointments.  We are not affiliated with the nhs.  Here’s the NHS emergency dental site. https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/dentists/how-can-i-access-an-nhs-dentist-in-an-emergency-or-out-of-hours/

This explains how to find an emergency appointment.  Another option is to go private.  https://www.bupa.co.uk/dental/dental-care/services/emergency

In the meantime I’d ice the jaw where the pain is and take ibuprofen 600mg every six hours along with the paracetamol.
