    Toothache is one of the worst things any one can have and I understand that you are probably terrified of having any dental treatment. Quite honestly, you MUST seek dental treatment, there is no reason you cannot have treatment while pregnant, ask a friend if they know of a good dentist, or go to the NHS website.

    It is essential for you and the baby to have good dental health, also NHS dentistry Is free for you.

    I sincerely hope you find a sympathetic dentist to help you, and I am sure you will find that fears are unfounded and you will get to be pain free, please, please, make the decision to get treatment now, before things get worse, if not for your sake then your baby's.

    Best of luck, it is very common for pregnant women to need dental treatment during pregnancy and dentist are trained to adapt to there needs.

    Toothache will not affect your baby but if you won’t eat food properly then that may affect you and also your baby. Go for the treatment as soon as possible and eat properly. Take help of any good dentist.

    You need to see a dentist regarding your teeth. Antinflammatories such as nurofen should be avoided in

    pregnancy. Alternative strong pain relief is available on prescription which can be used in pregnancy. See your GP regarding this.
