teeth problems , i need some home remedys to deal with pain?

hey i am only 17 weeks and 5days , and the bottom jaw on my right side is killing me horrible ... it hurts so bad i barely slept last night, and i was wondering it anyone knew any home remedys to ease the pain ? i am going to make a dentist apt soon but i am going to see if the work can wait until after my baby is born , because i dont think me being really afraid and stressed out will be ok for the baby. i am highly scared of a dentist , so someone please give me some home remedys that work really well and fast working too... thank you so much

  • Sounds like of my wisdom teeth are coming in and its killing my jaw and hurting my ear as well. I just take some tylonel or u can use some orajel. Ive gotta go to the dentist. Dont be scared they have medicine that wont hurt the baby. I know several ppl that had to have dental work done and their babies were born healthy as could be. I know how u feel i worry about everything and this is my second. I think i worry more with this one more than my last.

  • I'd go in anyway. It might be wisdom teeth or you might have an infection. An infection can spread and cause a lot of problems in pregnancy. Just get it checked out.

  • sorry, but it sounds like you will have to go to the dentist....

    If you have a bat (baseball bat) stand on it. Use a chair or something to hold on to so you don't loose your balance. It will make your tooth pain go away, but only until you step off the bat.
