Tooth and gum pains!!

My teeth and gums are on fire! There's no swelling, just throbing aches. I don't have dental insurance. Besides using Orajel, what are natural ways to relieve tooth and gum pains that won't hurt my baby?

Tylenol& make sure you switch to sensitive toothpaste too--like sensodyne.  It makes a difference.  You should get some dental insurance or look into a nearby dental school that gives a discount. After my first I had two cavities & had to have a root canal.  Preg can really do a number on your teeth plus AAP recommends baby visit dentist no later than 12 mos.
