What can I do for toothache for my child?

edited July 2019 in Dentistry for Kids

My son had to have his 4 front teeth pulled and the rest of his teeth capped on top and bottom when he was two because of bed rot and the dentist said they were decayed. He’s now 9. A couple of days ago he started complaining of a toothache. I went to check which one and noticed all the caps on the top have come off except one. I have tried orajel, Tylenol and even crushed ibuprofen and rubbed on his tooth and nothing isn’t helping. He is screaming and crying bc of the pain. What can I do til I can get him in a dentist in the morning?
