wisdom teeth removal

I've been having pain due to my wisdom teeth for the last couple of days. Have any of you gotten your wisdom teeth removed while pregnant? Ive heard the dentist can only do it if its an emergency and in about your second trimester. Im 18 weeks right now. And i wanted to see if any have gotten this done.

I've got work done on my back tooth I wanted to get it pulled so bad but instead my dentist gave me a a new filling in my tooth and a ruconile he drilled the nerve out in my tooth he didn't put me to sleep or nothing but he did numb my mouth completely before he did this he had to get the okay from my doctor and you have to tell you dentist you are in fact pregnant because they take xrays of your mouth and I here that isn't good for the baby its best that you get that handled asap because the truth is that's a pain that can't be fixed especially when your pregnant it only gets worse

I had my wisdom teeth taken out during my first trimester before i even knew i was pregnant. I took all the pain pills they gave me and was under anisesia while they pulled them out and my baby is fine but i would ask your obgyn and your oral surgeon.
