Pregnant with severe toothache, what to do?

My 20 year old daughter is almost 2 months pregnant and has a horrible toothache. Was wondering if anyone has any suggestions of what to do to relieve it. She was taking Tylenol but someone said she shouldn't take anything for the first 3 months, anyone have any home remmides that might help ease the pain?

I know some people will say take her to the denisist and I am going to take her but can't probably for another week due to waiting on her to get insurance to start so just looking for something to help her til I can get her there.

Pregnant with severe toothache, what to do?
Try ambesol, Tylenol, Advil....they are all safe during pregnancy if taken as directed.

If she is waiting on a government insurance like Title XIV (U.S.) go ahead and take her. Title XIV pays for medical bills from the date she applied, not the date she was approved. Many dentists will also take payments. I don't think that I could live with a severe toothache for a week. Home remedies just aren't that good.
Reply:i took tylenol but not an exessive amount. maybe a lil oragel. i had the same thing. all you can really do is go to sleep and hope it doesnt hurt when you wake up. put pressure on it from hand pillow ect..
Reply:Oil of cloves is a tride and true home rememdy. The teething gel(numbing gel) would be ok too. Wow, a week is a long time.My wife put off a dentist this last week. She wound up with a infection that swelled to the size of an egg. Your daughter pregnant or not if she gets an infection she'll be taking some powerful anti-biotics and will be hurtin for certain.

Keep an eye on it and good luck.
