I am about 19 weeks pregnant.

In the past few days I have been experiencing horrible gum, jaw and tooth pain.

I cannot afford to have dental care at this time and want to use some natural remedies to prevent or help with infection and swelling, that are safe for baby.

I have unfortunately had to take Tylenol bc the pain in unbearable.

I have start taking garlic internally as well as putting it on my gum and tooth.

I have swished with collodial silver and water, Neem mouthwash and warm salt-water.

I just got Olive Leaf oil but before trying it I wanted to see if anyone else has used this or has suggestions?

It's been awhile since you posted this. How are you doing?

Well, I used garlic topically and internally and swished with warm salt water and also diluted collodial silver. It did clear up in a couple days...but...

it has returned with a vengence.

About six months ago I had a tooth that was rotting and I needed it pulled or a root canal. It was also broken in half.

Before I could get to the dentist it fell out. I thought, problem solved.

This space is what keeps getting inflamed and or infected.

Right now there is an abscess above it and there is swelling, tremendous pain and a slight rash on the outside cheek.

I am again applying garlic topically and internally. Swishing with collodial and salt water solution and icing.

It is awful.

I am probably going to call my doctor tomorrow.

Although I am TERRIFIED of dentist.

Any other suggestions?

You must see a dentist. Can you charge it on a credit card? Please go. Tooth infections can become systemic and cause preterm labor.

I agree with scottishmommy. You have to go. They can work out a payment plan. The important thing is taking care of an infection. It's so serious! Best of luck and let us know how you're doing :-)

Yes, go go! I had a terrible infection that required a root canal. To get rid of the infection the dentist drilled and stuffed it with clove. The relief was almost immediate and amazing. The swelling went away within a day.

Please go get it taken care off. I know the pain you are talking about you can't keep going on like that. The infection must be given the ability to drain and it must be properly treated.

I would at least go into the er and get an antibiotic in your case. You cannot be turned away and can work out a payment plan afterwards. Clove oil will help tremendously if you catch an infection in time but it seems that this probably needs more drastic medical attention.

Another vote for conventional medicine. Any infection can cause preterm labor. Find a way to get it treated.

I had to get two holes drilled in my root canal needing teeth while pregnant...I chose for unmedicated...then I left the holes till baby was born and then got novicane and finished the rest. I really hope you at least do something to stop the pain until baby is born then finish it. Pls update us. I know you are suffering with this tooth as I was. Teeth problems while pregnant is very common btw.

I had massive decay start when pregnant. Apparently the mouth pH changes plus nutritional demands being higher lead to extra decay.

Could be a nasal infection, that will cause you to have a tooth ache.
