Q.

tOOTH ACHE

Hi Doc i am seven months pregnant i have terrible tooth aches during the day and night and according to my knowledge i am not allowed to go and see a dentist in order to take it out due to the risks involved.My question however is what can i do to stop the pain since i still have two months to go befor i go to labor.
I went to a dentist for a filling but he says since a i already filled it b4 it cant be done again.

before taking anything, it is best to go to your dentist and ask him to liase with your gynae. the filling can be done again or you could have other dental treatment if your gynae says its ok. it is unadvisable to continue taking painkillers for 2 months
