Hello. I would like to ask if somebody got a teeth extraction during 2nd trimester of pregnancy and the baby turned out fine?
The thought alone of having my decayed wisdom tooth to be extracted on my 2nd trimester frets me. My dentist's original plan was just to put up a temporary filling but when she drilled the tooth she found out that it was worse than expected ( no wonder it hurts really bad even before the procedure)! Prior this, a right molar tooth underwent root canal due to abscess and it called for an emergency dental treatment. I am 9 weeks pregnant now.
I had 3 teeth pulled last yr I wasn't pregnant tho but I remember the dentist asking me over and over if I may be pregnant they said the medication they use is harmful to the baby. I would put off until u have the baby put I do kno how painful that can be !!!! The pain I had from my teeth was worse then childbirth I was in tears it hurt so bad !!! Does ur dentist kno ur pregnant???
