Hello,
Given your pregnancy, most of the medicines that would be strong enough to alleviate your symptoms are contraindicated.
The best option for you is to get the wisdom tooth out.
Now that you are in your second trimester, this is the best time to get all pending dental treatment out of the way. The good news is that an upper impacted wisdom tooth is much easier to remove than a lower wisdom tooth.
Please see an oral surgeon at the earliest.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.
