Hello and welcome.
It is possible that your toothache is due to tooth decay. Numbness could possibly be due to swelling from the infection compressing the nerve. See a dentist urgently and get a dental examination done. Depending on the extent of tooth decay you may need root canal treatment or extraction. Analgesics and antibiotics may prove useful. Schedule an appointment soon.
Best luck and regards!
