Definitely go see a dentist! The toothache if it is enough to wake you up at night, could mean that you have an abcessed tooth, which is not good to have when pregnant! It needs to be taken care of asap! Bleeding gums means that you are most likely suffering from pregnancy gingivitis, so make sure to brush twice and day and floss every day!! Also make sure to get your teeth cleaned every 6 months. I am a dental hygienist so I have seen lots of pregnant women and pregnancy gingivitis is something that just needs to be controlled as much as possible. Basically everyone has bacteria in your mouth that gets cleaned out everytime you brush and floss, but when you are pregnant your body can overreact to that same bacteria. So not much you can do other than keep everything really clean! Congrats on your bfp! And sorry if too much information, I just like making sure everyone knows the facts about dental health!

Anytime, just make sure to tell them you are expecting. They will take extra pre-cautions if they need to take any x-rays. And dental x-rays are very minimal radiation compared to any other type of x-rays, so as long as you are covered with the lead apron, no radiation will get to the baby!
