Hi..its a common problem during pregnancy because of hormonal changes in the body. Visit dentist for teeth scaling and use Colgate plax (non alcoholic) mouth rinse. Regards

This is a common occurrence during pregnancy due to hormonal changes.  please visit a dentist to ascertain  if you need cleaning of teeth or not.  Also you can do some Luke warm salt water gargles to give you some relief from pain.
Listerine won't help you in relieving pain.
