    You dentist should have an answering service in place. Call them and someone should get back to you. I know both our dentist and doctor have backup assistance. If you are very concerned, go to the ER or walk in clinic.

    The black eye is a bruise from a blood vessel, and the swelling is infection, probably a mix of pus and blood.
    No one online can know how much of an emergency it is.
    Why didn't you call a dentist first? No insurance? Not a good reason.
