Hi Dhoneybourne
Were you not prescribed a course of antibiotics & analgesics by the doctor after the removal of the tooth?
If yes, then please continue with the same. Warm water & salt gargle esp after food is essential.
If not please revert to the practice where you went & ask for the medication.
As a rule TYLENOL/PARACETAMOL 500mg max 8th hourly is considered safe in pregnancy.
Thanks & Take Care

Hello there..
Welcome to healthcare magic forum..
It advised to avoid any kind of medicine during pregnancy, particularly during the first three months of pregnancy. However if your fiancée is suffering from severe pain she could take half a tablet of paracetamol. Paracetamol on its own with no added ingredients is considered the safest painkiller to take when you are pregnant. But i would suggest you to consult your doctor and than decide on medications!!

Hope this helps!!
Take care!!
