Dental pain in Montreal/Outremont- There's something seriously inflamed about my wisdom tooth. How much will this cost and how can I get rapid care to make the pain stop?

I have no dental insurance. From time to time (one every year or so) the flesh around my wisdom tooth gets a bit irritated. This time it has gotten really bad, so much that it woke me up and I'm not usually whiny about these things. I obviously can't really work on five hours of sleep.
Two advil is not enough to shut this up and it hasn't gone away after a day. It really, really hurts and I want it fixed I have no idea how adults deal with this sort of thing and what I can expect to pay or what feels like a gum abscess. I don't even know if this counts as an emergency except that it really hurts.
This problem with my tooth only ever happens when I have a head cold, like now. It's always on the bottom right side where the gum partially covers the tooth. For some reason I appear to have more gum on that side than the other side.
(And to top it off I have some sort of eye infection that feels like I have sandpaper in the eye and used my last paid sick day yesterday to be told by a doctor that it wasn't a problem and 'healing' even though my eye is still burning like crazy)
