pregancy and toothache


Hi i was wondering if anybody knows what medicine it is safe to take when pregnant if you have toothache. I am pregnant and the last three days i have had terrible toothache, but i haven't taken anything cos i don't want to harm the baby, the toothache keeps me awake at night. Please help

Not sure if there is any. I know theres some stuff that can be dangerous in pregnancy.
What about a warm wheat cusion and hold it to your face on the side where the pain is.

You could try bonjela..that stuff is amazing!!
I had toothache with my first and it turned out to be an infection ... if you go to the dentist whilst you are pregnant or before your baby hits one, you get it on the NHS so will save u some money than if you wait xx
