I'm 7 months pregnant and just finished taking 3 days supply of antibiotics for a tooth ach. Now i'm having severe pain in a different tooth(and the gums around it)...can a tooth infection jump teeth?
my dentist wont do anything but give me meds till i have the baby but i dont think i can live with this pain for 2 more months! any advice would be appreciated.

you can always chew on some garlic or small pieces of ginger if u do not have that then you can chew on small pieces of ice :-) some people use clove oil but its not too good for you when you are pregnant. hope you get better xx

If you have an infection, your dentist may prescribe an antibiotic. Unless you are allergic to them, antibiotics from the penicillin and cephalosporin families are safe to take. Erythromycin and metronidazole are also safe to take. However, tetracycline should be avoided since it can affect the teeth and bones of the fetus.

Avoid non-steroidal pain medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Aleve) and aspirin while you are pregnant. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is considered to be safe through most of your pregnancy. Stronger pain medications such as codeine or Percodan may be used for less than a few weeks; however, the fetus may be less active while you're on the medication. Narcotics such as these are not recommended for long-term use.

Be sure to talk to your dentist and see what can be done. If you don't get anywhere, go to a new dentist!
