Hello doctor,

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?

Hello,

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.
