Dental local anaesthetic drug used in pregnancy

Hi there,
I need to get some urgent dental work done on my gums. I am currently 13 weeks pregnant. My consultant has said they will be using lignocaine with adrenalin for the local anaesthetic. I asked another doctor who said adrenalin can slower blood flow to the placenta and hence slower brain growth. This may cause learning difficulties in the future. I am very confused whether or not to wait until baby comes. Is this true that lignocaine and adrenalin is not good to use for local anaesthetic during pregnancy pls? Also I read that Prilocaine is the best since its contains no Adrenaline and doesn't get into the foetal circulation as much as the others. Is this true please?
Is anyone able to recommend the safest drug for use in local anaesthesia during pregnancy pls something that doesn't affect the baby at all? If this can be included with research evidence, I will really appreciate it. Also what's the safest dosage of local anaesthesia in the gum during pregnancy pls? Finally when's (how many weeks into pregnancy)the best recommended time to have local anaesthesia during pregancy if I can go ahead with it? Many thanks in advance...
