In too much dental pain and nobody is answering my calls. I fear that my dental pain will spread to my brain without immediate attention. I'm contemplating on attending / calling the A&E 911 emergency line. I don't know what todo. My family aren't really helping...

Call 111 and explain the situation to them. They'll be able to refer an emergency dentist appointment for you.

It's 999 not 911 unless you're in America; and if you're in America I would call an Uber to go to the hospital if you wanted to save your family a few thousand US$.

If you're in any developed country, I would suggest you call 999 / 112 if you are in severe pain. Alternatively if you are in the UK you can call 111 first.

Call 999 and request for an ambulance. You need immediate medical attention.

Oh yeah of course! I'm from the U.K. so it's 999.
I'm in the queue for calling 111

Have you got a thermometer you can take your temperature with?

Don't think it has. I have a relative who is a nurse who is with me right now. Said I'll know if it's spread because of the pain.

What ended up happening?
I went back to the dentist and as they were "open" got my prescription from the doctor then the medicine from the pharmacy. I eventually got the tooth taken out yesterday.
However, I am still sitting in fear of the unknown.
