  • Nope slow down on the tylenol it causes kidney failer.
    1)brush you teeth with sensodyn and warm or hot water
    Put a warm wash cloth over your cheeck it helps
    2) Evoid solids completelly replace them with oatmeal ,mashed potatoes and stuff like that
    3)Evoid cold things like cold sodas and stuff like that
    4)dont touch any type of candy at all .
    5)If you go to the ER they can give you a lidocain shot on the area this will numb it and controlle the pain untill you see the Dentist .
    6)Call several dentist when trying to get and appointment see who gets you in quicker and explain your situation .

    Iv been ther and i was pregnant too i feel your pain im so sorry ; (

  • i have the SAME thing ugh!
    I take tylenol && put a heating pad on it - it works wonders.
    I also gargle with warm salt water to get any germs or stuff out - it will be so much worse if it gets infected.
    it sucks cause i cant drink stuff or eat alot of certain things because it hurts bad.... i feel ur pain.
