What can I take for my teeth coming in?

My wisdom teeth are coming in and I'm 6 months pregnant. Does anyone know what's safe to take? Orajel or anything homeopathic?
For those of you that always say call the doctor I did but they're closed for the day and I cannot get ahold of my dentist.

  • Just plain old Tylenol is all they told me to take. I had the same problem 2 years ago pregnant with my daughter. Orajel is ok too, but anything stronger I would avoid.

  • Orajel, but it doesnt last long. Tylenol, but if the pain is REALLY bad you can go to the em. room and they should give you something stronger that's safe for pregnancy. My friend had the same problem and went to the hospital and said the pain was so bad she thought she was gonna pass out. They gave her an IV drug in the hosp. and a prescription to go home with. Just not sure what it was for.

  • Clove oil is natural, and it's great at numbing! Plus it's not on my super huge long list of herbs to avoid during pregnancy.
