    About a year ago I had my wisdom teeth on my right side out. The surgeon would only do one side at a time because they were so nasty. But my boss was pissed off at the time I had to have off work (about 3 days) because I could hardly breathe let alone speak. Anyways, my left side never hurt so I was just waiting for a time suitable to have them out... and of course now I'm pregnant and they've started to hurt. What am I going to do??? It's not bad bad pain at the mo, just a bit tender and my throat is sore and my ear is blocked.

    :hugs: xxx

    I hate dentists (mainly because I can't get one - grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!). Only thing I can suggest is to go and see yours and see what they say, they might just be able to give you some antibiotics to clear it all up til you have it removed or something.

    Hope you get it sorted :hugs:

    I had mine out a few years ago and they did it all at one time. I would get them out now cause they will only cause more pain. dumb teeth! :hugs: Hope you feel better!

    My wisdom teeth are just coming in now that I'm pregnant and it's horrifying pain. I'm thinking of using some baby teething remedies, see if that helps at all for me.. but yours are already in.. I was told plain, regular strength tylenol is safe after the first trimester, but it's not very effective!!

    I think the only reason they won't do it, is if you have to go under general (is that the one where you go to sleep, thats the one i mean.) Or if they need to do xrays to see where it is etc. whihc obvs they can't do. So i guess it's on individual dentist and whetehr you've had xrays or not yet.

    I had one out a few months agho, and now my other side has started to ache, you cld try mouth wash.
