we are vacationing here, and my mother has a really really bad toothache that won't wait til next week (we're from Houston, but my parents are from Wisconsin) *the problem is that my mom is on immunosuppressants and is worried about infection.<br><br>
my dentist is closed - we got one referral from someone else, for Dr. Carmen -who is out of the office on Fridays<br><br>
HELP!

I don't know any dentists there, but if you go to a drug store on the dental aisle, you'll find some kits that include an oil called "Eugenol." It's clove oil. It will help with pain and should kill infection, too, if I recall. Here's something from a quick search:<br><br><a href="http://www.drchetan.com/have-toothache-use-clove-oil.html" target="_blank">http://www.drchetan.com/have-toothac...clove-oil.html</a><br><br>
I found it pretty helpful for my tooth pain. They also have temporary filling kits if it's a filling that's a problem. Those are all designed to get you through the weekend until you can see a dentist.
