What is the best over the counter medication for a tooth ache/infection?
my back tooth on the top is boke off at the gum line, and its become infected. the dentist says he cant really do any thing for me because i am having a baby. but the pain is almost too much to handle. what can i get from the drug store to help the pain and infection?

Laura M
naproxen will probably help the pain (Aleve) but you are pregnant, so can't you only take Tylenol?

ice pack

I had the same pain, i used Clove oil from the pharmacy or u can use the natural Clove itself just put it under the tooth it looks like small woody thing ask in the herb shop or supermarket, before using Clove oil ask the doctor better for safety but for sure the pain will go

well call your gyno and ask if they can give you an antibiotic i had an infected tooth during a pregnancy and they put me on antibiotics and i used kanka and anbesol good luck i honestly feel a bag toothache is worse pain than haveing a baby! so i feel for you. good luck hope it feels better soon. oh btw you can use cold or warm rags on your face on the side its hurting you will have to try both to see which will help sometimes its hot and sometimes its cold all depends on the tooth.

The only thing that I can think of off the top of my head is Ambusol? The stuff that you give to babies to soothe their gums when they are teething.

But before you take anything- even over the counter; talk to you doctor as it might affect the baby!

Good luck! Hope you feel better soon!

Orajel + Motrin will help a lot.....

..........I think you may want to consult another dentist tho.......

You need to see an oral surgeon and have it taken out. They may not be able to put you under, but I can't see where novacain will hurt. I had mine taken out that way. Plus he would know what kind of antibiotics you can take that won't hurt the baby. They operate on pregnant women all them time without complications, so find someone else. You are just suffering needlessly. And also having an infected tooth can be dangerous.

oh my poor thing and I am going through a toothache and can't find a dentist until later on next week or so. I got the max strength anbolsol that numbs your tooth for awhile.

Oh my gosh, you poor thing! I cannot believe there is nothing a dentist can do for you. You must be in agony:( I wish I could help you!

I am also pregnant right now, and have been awake all night with a horrible toothache. I have an appointment later today, and they said as long as I get info from my OB saying they can do xrays with a lead apron, injections for numbness with or without epinephrin, and can prescribe antibiotics, that I am fine with getting treated. I called my OB and she OK'd it all. To relieve the pain until I can get in there, I am rinsing my mouth with Listerine every 30 minutes and it helps somewhat. I too have heard Clove oil works best. Thats what they used to numb you at the dentist years ago. DO NOT take Ibuprofen. Pregnant women are not supposed to use anything containing that at all. Tylenol and Extra Strength Tylenol are the ONLY pain relievers that have been actually tested and found to be safe for pregnant women. That came straight from my OB. Disolving a Tylenol on your tooth can make it worse, do not try that. I would call another dentist. I hope some of this info has been helpful. Good luck and congrats on your pregnancy!

How wud u know that it is safe for ur baby?

I would gargle with warm salt water. Ask your dentist if, you can use orajel or Sensodyne tooth paste. It's not really a good idea to have an ongoing infection while pregnant. It's not healthy for the baby. I would get a 2nd opinion and talk to your Primary doctor.
The dentist doesn't want to treat you for fear of his insurance would not cover the liability & it not being good for the baby.
That being said, you shouldn't leave your infection untreated either.
