Wisdom teeth

I'm 21w and I have my wisdom teeth coming in on three sides. It's really quite painful and I don't have enough room for them! I obviously need them removed. Is this possible while pregnant? Can I be put under anesthesia? And what about pain medications afterwards? It just doesn't seem safe for baby, but I don't know how long I can suffer!

I have 3 coming in and i'm 28+3 & my dentist wants to get them taken out immediately. I also need to ask my obgyn however the dentist knows i'm pregnant & says he's gonna take them out i just can't be put under.

Ask your obgyn. Mine won't even let me get a cleaning unfilled I turn 28 weeks just to be on the safe side.
