Tylenol is the only thing you are supposed to take but you can use the topical stuff like orajel. You can still go to the dentist too. If they have to x-ray they will put 2 lead aprons on you and the novicane is safe for the baby. I had to have a tooth pulled when I was pregnant with my last baby. My doc said that it is much safer for the baby to go to the dentist than to take the chance of getting an infection.
