Q.

toothache in 2nd trimester

I have a severe toothache, it feels as it my lesft side is becoming deformed, the panado is no helping and the dentist does not want to remove the tooth. I am concerned about my baby. I have just finished a course of amoxilyn but the pain is worsening.

let your dentist discuss the treatment with your gynae- it is possible to have treatment in the second trimester if your gynae says it is ok
