Repeated episodes raise the possibility of chronic infection and possibly a tooth abscess. You should consult a dentist for an evaluation. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents will help tide over the problem. Application of ice packs will also help.
It is best to defer tooth extraction till after the delivery of the baby. Hope this helps.
The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
I had a pretty bad dental abscess a few months ago, and I found a couple of things to use in place or antibiotics since I don't have dental insurance. I'm not sure if these would help you as much as they helped me since your problem is under your jaw, but at the very least they shouldn't hurt you or the baby.
1. Raw garlic. You just have to chew it over the affected tooth, or I guess in your case on the affected side. Chew for as long as you can stand it! It burns and itches and is really strong, but it really does help. My abscess was in the very back of my mouth, so I was able to just rest a piece on the affected area. Swallow it if you don't hate it, it's a good antioxidant. Repeat a few times a day. This dramatically helped my pain.
2. A green tea bag. Wet, warm it and squeeze out the excess liquid. Then place over the affected area until it has cooled.
3. Hydrogen peroxide. My favorite of all three, not very uncomfortable and super super affective. Honestly helped the first time I tried it. Just mix an equal amount of peroxide to some hot or warm water and gargle/swish for a minute or so. Tingles a bit when you spit it out, but nothing too intense. Repeat up to three or four times a day. You can also do a warm salt rinse, but the peroxide was much more affective for me.
The routine I settled on (and still use, cause I like to be thorough) while I was fighting my abscess- I would start out with the peroxide rinse (I'd usually mix in a little salt, doesn't hurt), then brush. I'd wet my toothbrush with a little peroxide, sprinkle some baking soda on it, then toothpaste. Then I'd waterpik and after all that I'd use mouthwash. I've had no recurring problems.
I hope something finds you calm and relief! I couldn't imagine having that kind of pain while pregnant. Best of luck to you :)
