What could this be? (About teeth.)

I have had horrible pain on the right side of my mouth for about six days now. It started out as a mild soreness on the bottom of my jaw, no tooth pain whatsoever. But now it's escaladed so far that my bottom molars and my top second molar (all on the right side of my mouth) are in excruciating pain, mostly in my bottom molars. They hurt so bad I was in tears all night, and the pain hasn't gone away. I've tried everything and the only things that seem to work are mouthwash and water. But I can't keep swishing water in my mouth all night and I can't swallow gallons of water or I'll never get any sleep! I'm a single mother with a seven month old, and I'm exhausted. I tried laying down to get some sleep and the pain went from my teeth all the way to my ear and part of my head. The pain is horrible and I am miserable! There are no dentists open until Monday, but I'm terrified of going. Honestly, I rarely brush my teeth and I don't use any sort of dental hygeine products. I eat at least one piece of candy a day and pregnancy absolutely destroyed my teeth since that is where most of the baby's nutrients come from. I was also born with no enamel on my teeth so they've been bad from the start. What could all this pain be from? How can it be fixed? Sorry this is so long but I need answers and didn't want to leave any details out!
