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.

Try heat and/or ice packs. Why hasn't your dentist pulled this tooth for you??? Should be easy I would think; talk to your Dr and dentist.

Can you take co-codamol painkillers for toothache you are pregnant?

Tylenol is allowed, anything else you have to ask your doctor about. And you should get that tooth fixed since you can't take strong painkillers and leaving it will make it worse. It can also cause a infection.

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.
