do i need antibiotics for swollen gums and face and neck should i go to dentist

aksin

My wife is 7 months pregnant and she has swollen teeth. We are not sure whether to go to a dentist or just sit on it during the pregnancy period. As the dental plan in Canada is not covered by the Government, the dentists in Canada tend to make a big deal out of nothing, as they get paid more. So we prefer not to go to the dentist if we do not have to.
Can anyone suggest what we should do at this moment?
