  • I heard something about gingivitis possibly being a cause for pre term labor but I can't remember where I heard that off hand. Sorry you're in pain. Pregnancy turns my teeth to crap and I've been dealing with severe pain off and on now for a while too. Good luck!

  • If it gets infected, yes.

  • Stress and pain can cause early labor, but it doesn't mean it will. It has to be a pretty severe infection to put you into labor, but talk to your Dr about it and be aware of any signs of early labor.

  • Why cant you go and get it fixed earlier? If it turns into an infection it can lead to problems for your pregnancy.
