I am 8 weeks pregnant and got bad gum ache on one tooth. It is really stressing me out. Can a dentist do anything to get rid of the pain?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
If it is just one tooth and there is no associated caries means that is periodontal. So what I suggest is single tooth scaling and root planning will not take much of your sitting time. I think you can go for single tooth scaling but make sure that you go to an experienced dentist. Otherwise, at-home remedy, you can try warm water and salt rinse 5 to 6 times a day. Do revert back if pain persists. Follow up after one day.
