Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

You can take pain killers like Advil for the severe pain. You can take it along with Augmentin which is an antibiotic. However for the exact diagnosis for toothache, you should consult a dentist and get it examined.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
