Dental work and Pregnancy?
I'm full of questions this month, it seems! I just got back from the dentist after an infection (yes, I let it go for a week) caused me to have what would appear to be lock-jaw. At any rate, after causing as much pain as possible, the dentist told me that I needed to have my wisdom teeth out. (I knew this a year ago, but ran out of insurance coverage before I could get it done) All four of my wisdom teeth have to come out and soon. My question is, can they do this when you're pregnant? By the time my appointment rolls around, I still wouldn't be close enough to missing my period to test. They put you to sleep, I've heard from several people. So, should I tell them I might be pregnant or that we're trying? And if so, can they still do the extractions??
I'm on an anti-biotic and Vicodin now, and I didn't tell them we were trying or that there may be a chance that I was pregnant, but then again, I can't open my mouth much to talk anyway. I haven't taken any of the medicine yet though. I'll have my hubby call the pharmasist tomorrow. The main thing is the wisdom teeth, I guess. Any help on what to expect with that would be wonderful.
