    Get a close friend or family member (pref. family) to answer the phone for you to tell them the news that you are incapacitated.

    They'll probably reschedule, if not, time to find a different job.

    Stay positive. At least it's not pain level 8.

    Email them and say you unfortunately you can't do the interview due to a tooth extraction, but please can you reschedule for next week when you expect to be better.

    It really isn't very difficult.

    Don't leave it until they call you, and don't get someone to answer the phone for you.
