Hi, there: I had a tooth pulled last week. I was nervous for it but it really wasn't that bad. My doctor did say that I could have nitrous but the oral surgeon suggested I not have it. They gave me a shot of novicane and after it was numb pulled the tooth out in 3 pieces. It was over very quickly with no pain. Nitrous was definitly not needed. You'll be fine with just the novicane, I'm a big baby if I can do it anyone can! Good luck and go get your tooth pulled :)

I also had the same questions when i had to get a tooth REfilled. Both dentist and doctor said it was good to get it done, just no major surgery. I had to get a cavity refilled and a wisdom tooth pulled that is turinin into a problem. I dont want premature labor or anything elsa cause of my teeth, i havent had problems to now with my teeth. If i have to not use any meds with getin the tooth pulled..i wont. I just dont want to let the tooth get infected thats tryin to push its way into my mouth.

Talk to your ob/gyn as well as the dental surgent and make sure both are clear on what the procedure is and how it is to be done (pain meds etc) and that it is safe for the LO.

Please see your dentist and physician about this issue. I understand your fear...however a toothache is nothing to fool around can lead to other types of infection in your body and other medical complications for you and your baby. Your doctors should be the ones to decide the best course of medical treatment for you and your baby in regards to this toothache.

I have a tooth that needs to be pulled,because of a toothache i have a huge fear of the dentist and i was wondering if anyone knew if there was anyway to be sedated before this that is safe for the baby, or if i will have to live with the toothache for another 6 months. Please email me with any suggestions.
