Hi there,

I can certainly understand your need for some relief- it can hurt when wisdom teeth are coming in!

Tylenol is the only pain medication that's considered a "class A", which is safe during pg. Other pain meds can be given by your Dr. if needed, but they really try to avoid them. Check with your doc, but a topical mouth pain relief gel should be ok too.

I believe that tylenol is safe to take while pregnant. If you are unsure, call your OB.
