It is typically safe for pregnant women to take opiates during pregnancy. Often doctors hesitate to prescribe other types of drugs because of the risks. When under a doctors care opiate analgesics are a good option.

What is the best way to pull out a tooth?

Try biting into an apple, and if that scares you can gently wiggle it with your tongue. Sometimes it will even fall out on its own. My daughter Z'nnya had a loose tooth and it made her have headaches every day, so I gave her Tylenol, and the pain stopped about 2-3 hours later. I reccomend using Tylenol for any loose teeth. You should try using it because it is worth its cost. I get my Tylenol from Wal-Mart on the medicine aisle. There are other medicines that work good, but not as great as Tylenol. Try Tylenol, and if you dont like it (which I know you will) try another brand.

What happen if you get your wisdom teeth taking out while pregnant?

I had one wisdom tooth pulled while I was 5 months pregnant and it hurt really bad!

It hurt so bad. Then because I was pregnant, I wasn't allowed to take anything but tylenol. I might as well been popping tic tacs because the pain was excrutiating for days! If I were you I'd do my best to wait. Unless the pain is that unbearable. Sorry Im just being honest.

How do you stop toothache pain?

Get the tooth fixed by a doctor. Tylenol and Advil may help, but until you get the infection removed, it will keep hurting (unless the nerve in the tooth dies. But when that happens, it's probably a deep cavity and you'll need a root canal to fix it.)
