If the hyphema is small, it may appear in layers of your anterior chamber.

Another thing your doctor may see while looking closely is a microhyphema. This is a cloudy film that contains red blood cells in the anterior chamber.

This will result in bleeding and swelling which can make speaking or eating painful. If these problems are neglected, it may lead to pregnancy complications such as preterm labor and miscarriages. This article focuses on the treatment for toothache during pregnancy.

There are several home remedies for toothache during pregnancy that can effectively provide relief from the pain without any side effects. Following home treatments should be used only till you get an appointment from your dentist:

Hot and Cold Pack:Application of hot and cold packs alternatively on the affected tooth can prove to be beneficial. Cold packs have a numbing effect on the swollen tooth while the heat can drain out any abscess formed.

Saline Water:To prepare this solution, dissolve about one teaspoon of salt into a cup of warm water. Take some of the mixture in your mouth and rinse for about 30 seconds and then spit it out. Salt is slightly antiseptic and can kill the bacteria present in the mouth thus subsiding the pain and inflammation temporarily.

Keep the cloves near the painful tooth. Within an hour, you will find that the pain has gone down to a great extent. Clove oil can also be used for the same purpose.
