Hi i am 38 weeks and 3 days pregnant and i have bad tooth ache i have appointment tomorrow what can i take?

Only Tylenol

Head-teeth
Your only option at this point would be acetaminophen; no other over the counter analgesic would be safe to take at your stage of pregnancy. The timing of your toothache may also pose certain limitations on what your dentist can do, and he will need to collaborate with your obstetrician to chart a course that provides relief with the least risk to your pregnancy and your unborn baby.

Check with OB

Teeth_brushing
Who is your appointment with- dentist or pregnancy health team? Call your OB/midwife/nurse immediately to get an answer about medications' safety. At this point in the pregnancy, the baby should be able to tolerate most medications you can take but, be very cautious since you don't want to precipitate labor while unsupervised by your pregnancy health team.
