When I was 14 or something, my mouth was x-rayed and the dentist sort of flipped out about my wisdom teeth and tried to convince my mom that I needed them removed IMMEDIATELY because they were that awful. At the time, I wasn't even feeling them, but apparently, they're not aligned in any sort of way that my mouth will be able to handle should they come through.
Fast forward to this pregnancy, and I have a wisdom tooth trying to break through that's pretty much painful as heck. I read up about it, and even if I was comfortable with the idea of seeing a dentist about it while pregnant (which I'm not very thanks to the antibiotics and painkillers it looks like it would take), it looks like they can't do anything until you're in the second trimester anyway. Yikes. So, it looks like I might be just sucking it up and suffering through this hoping that it's just a flare up and will die down soon.
Anyone else with teeth acting up in this pregnancy? Or experience with this sort of thing? I know about salt water gargling (GAG while sick with MS!) and keeping the area clean to prevent infection...toothpaste, mouthwash, etc... and I know that Ibuprofen is 'acceptable' in pregnancy although I'd like to avoid that as well for the time-being.
