Really bad toothache, i want to cry!


I have got the worst toothache i've ever had and just want to punch something or cry, i've never known pain like it, its horrendous. I've been on waiting list for my tooth out by sedation since January because my dentist won't remove it any other way due to me being nervous and alergic to the aneasthic (sp?) they use, anyway i finally got to top of waiting list and then got my bfp so can no longer be sedated. The pain comes and goes and has niggled for a few days now but nothing major and paracetomol has sorted it, 2nite before work it started niggling so i took 2 paracetomol and it was fine while i was at work, i came home from work about 8.45pm and it started niggling again so took 2 more paracetomol, except this time they didn't work i left it a hour by which time the pain was so bad i was shouting at hubby, so i rung nhs direct and am now waiting for someone to ring me back, she said it would be within the hour but its up in 10 mins and i'm still waiting, i really hope they can do something, i can't wait till after bank hol to see someone, even if i can't be seen while 2moro its better than Tues. Any advice ladies? xx

Oh hunni I really do sympathise, I keep getting bad toothache, also need to have one taken out but I was too nervous last time so opted for antibiotics, really wish I hadn't tho as I've been suffering with toothache for the last couple of days

I keep rincing with listerine, that seems to numb it for a short time but doesn't last long used to swear by clove oil but apparently it's not good when pregnant

Really hope you get it sorted soon, toothache is one of the worst pains imaginable

Let me know how you get on with nhs direct, they were good with me the other week, got me seen the same day, just wish I'd had the tooth out now x

Well NHS direct aren't my favorite people at the moment, at about 9.45pm last night i rung them and was advised to ring urgent care direct (part of NHS direct that covers Yorkshire) so rung them and was told someone would ring me back within the hour, one and a half hours later i rang them back and was told another 10-15 mins and i should def get my call back, 40 mins later someone rung me back and said i def needed to see a dentist and someone else from the appts dept would call me back within the hour and if not first thing this morning, i was awake all night in pain but no phone call, about 10am today i rang them back to see if they could chase up how long i would be waiting, was told someone would ring me back again but i should only be waiting 40 mins this time, just over a hour later someone rang me back to say he can't understand why i haven't received my call for a appt and that he would add me back on the list, he's put a note explaining how long i've been waiting and thinks someone will call me back within the next half hour, i'm not going to hold my breath on this. Will update when i hear something xxx

If you can get to asda or tesco - you can use something called Orajel It's benzocaine which is a local anasthetic but totally numbs your mouth it's about 4 and fabulous safe to use in pregnancy - I checked with the local dental hospital.

I ended up having a wisdom tooth removed last week as was in agony - so massive sympathy chick, there are a few different local anaesthetics they could use if you are sensitive to one, get back there and kick some arse. The first dentist I saw 3 weeks ago told me I should try flossing/mouthwash and that pregnancy makes your teeth sensitive I ended up running out crying as she wound me up that much

In reality I had a cavity that had actually gone through my nerve - yeah cos listerine will sort THAT out

Good luck

I always have dam tooth aches so i use colgate sensitise it has a pain reliever in it, I mean I dab it on and it helps. Also listerine sensitive, anything with potassium citrate to calm the nerve will help. Start using it now to prevent ones in future but it should work now also. I hate dentists.

Thanks ladies, Princesspie i know they can give you certain antibiotics in pregnancy so i think i will end up with them today, i've just felt my gum with my tongue and it feels as though a abcess may be on its way which is annoying cause now they won't take it out till that has gone, by which time the pain will be gone too and i'll end up wimping out of it doing, i really hope they offer to do it today and then its over with. I'm not near a asda and can't get to one but i do have cordisil (sp?) so going to check if i can use that (i'm sure my sister used it in pregnancy) if so i'll try that. They have finally rung back, i have a appt at 9.15pm 2nite i can't believe i've to wait all day to be seen, if they hadn't have a mix up i would have no doubt been seen earlier. Thank you for all you advice and sympathy xxx

Well i went to the appt, he put a temp filling on it and gave me antibiotics, he said i've to go see my own dentist asap and arrange for the tooth taking out, cause the temp filling won't last till after baby is born. It feels loads better already

I am having bad tooth pain and it has been for the past few weeks so nothing to do with pregnancy (I only just got a positive) so I think it is a cavity. How do they go about checking out cavities when you are pregnant? The last time they checked, it was by an x-ray and everyone but me stepped out of the room just in case. It kind of worried me that it would be bad to have one done if I were pregnant so I am just wondering if the process was the same? Should I tell my dentist? I am going in tomorrow.

Sorry for the hijack of the thread.
