Talk to OB: First i would see your dentist to determine the cause of the pain. Once a diagnosis is made, they will make recommendations for treatment. After this, a discussion may occur with your OB doctor regarding acceptable medications and or the best time to perform needed treatment

Orajel: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is the first option, you could try orajel but know that its is only a topical anesthetic that will only give a few minutes of relief if anything. Best option would be to see a dentist to identify the cause for the pain. Then you can get solutions for pain relief that are targeted to address the source of pain. Seeing a dentist will also ensure nothing serious is going on. Best of luck!

See a dentist: Being pregnant doesn't mean you should not receive dental care. Routine care (not including routine x rays) can be continued during pregnancy. Emergency care for pain relief should rendered. It's more stressful and harmful for the mom & fetus to be in pain, than to undergo a dental procedure.
