Re: Dental help during pregnancy
I recently had a root canal last month. The dentist had to do Xrays, and my OB cleared it, but told me that he needed to cover my belly with one vest, and make sure another one was covering my neck. The Xray can cause issues with the thyroid. Other than that, there is only so much that you can get to help with pain. However, when they give it to you, there are almost no limits to how much they can give you. I had to get 5 tubes of lidacain (sp?), and he shot me about 20 times because I was not numbing. I do not know if they will actually do surgery to remove teeth during pg, only because of needing certain medications, such as pain meds to help you recover after. I hope it all works out for you.
