See an Oral Surgeon -that would be the safest - if it bothers you that much you should get it out - they will be the fastest and try to do it in your 2nd trimester-drmcgarry.com

Ask your Ob-Gyn: There are a number of different opinions regarding what medications an expectant mother can take. Your best source to ask should be your ob-gyn.

Tylenol (acetaminophen): Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a safe bet. If the pain is not manageable talk to your doctor. You may also benefit from an antibiotic.
