I’m 26 weeks pregnant, and I have a tooth I need to get pulled. The dentists won’t pull it until next week. It has caused me serious pain to the point I can’t sleep without waking up in agony. What can I use to help the pain? I’m in desperate need of answers!!
Get some Orajel mouth wash from Walmart. It helped my tooth until I got to the dentist
Find a different dentist. The pain is not worth the wait
I’m in the same boat except my dentist won’t pull til after baby is here. I’ve been doing mouthwash several times a day, paracetamol and weirdly enough peppermint tea. I make the tea, wait til the bag cools down and put it on affected area for 5-10 minutes and drink the tea. Its the one trick I’ve found works.
Take equal part salt with equal part baking soda add few drops of water to make a paste and put that where your tooth hurts.
clove oil works wonders
I had the same problem when I was expecting my daughter after I gave birth to her no tooth it was like it was never there:joy:I’m so sorry I know how you feel I used to bite a dry clothe and it helped till birth
Do not use clove oil! It is highly toxic to pregnant women. Oil pulling with tea tree and coconut oil or find a dentist that specializes in pregnant dental patients.
I used this stuff for awhile and it really helped me good luck
Take a liquigel (Tylenol, aleve) and puncture it with a push pin, put the liquid directly on the painful tooth. Only thing that ever works for me
Warm and cold compresses help as well as swishing with salt and coconut oil. Spit out afterwards.
Since you’ve been to a dentist I’m guessing it’s not infected. Does it have hole in it? If so buy tooth putty. I actually found some at the dollar store after a friend told me about it. It is just as the name sounds putty for teeth to cover a hole. Can also be found at Walmart by the tooth paste and brushes
Put drops of clove oil on it
My wisdom teeth were coming in during my pregnancy! I got them out 2 weeks after my c section. They said all I could really do was Tylenol and the tube of gel you put on your teeth (I don’t know how to spell it )
I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled at 28 weeks i was in so much pain and they tried to make me wait but i refused to leave the dentist until they pulled them out they tried to tell me i could go into early labor and i should wait but i said nope do it now they gave me general anaesthetic and pulled them out took about 10mins and they were done and I was fine salt water rinse and panadole for a week after and all healed .
Don’t let then tell you what to do it’s your choice and they can refuse but eventually there will be a dentist that will do it
Clove oil or emu oil
Clove from spouts. Put it right on the tooth.
I laid on a bag of ice and took as much Tylenol as the OB aloud me too and he put me in antibiotics a few times for it cause I couldn’t have surgery to have it removed cause I was high risk
Clove oil or the raw clove itself
I had this throughout both my pregnancies! One thing that helped was sensodyne tooth paste. I would just put some in my finger and put the paste directly on the problem tooth. Good luck!
