    just wondering whether anyone else has been suffering with toothache... It keeps coming and going but i cant decide whether its my tooth or my gums cos one minute its at the bottom the next the top..
    Is this a pregnancy thing ???

    I think your gums become more sensitive during pregnancy.
    You should go and see a dentist (if you can find one! I've been looking for one with places for new patients for over a year!)
    You can get free NHS treatment whilst pregnant

    I had toothache all last week, was a bit perplexed by it as the area that hurt was around a tooth that had a root canal and crown, and another tooth that already had a filling.

    I took paracetamol for a few days to see if it would shift before going to the dentist. I was really careful with cleaning, got the floss and the tepe brushes out and rinsed with mouthwash. It susbsided over a few days and now its fine!
