Dental Work

Kelley - November 5

Hello - I am a few weeks along (don't know how far yet, 4 + HPT - first Dr. visit 11-10) and I have a dental appointment for a minor filling on Monday (11-8). Should I keep the appointment even though they are going to need to give me novocaine, or should I postpone it until after I see the doctor? Thanks.

I had a to get dental work done also early in my pregnancy. I had to have 6 cavities filled, the novocaine is fine because it is a local anasthesia. I would check with your dr. first and see what they say, because I dont think I had my work done until I was in my second trimester. I know the dentest cant give you x-rays when your pregnant, but when i told my dentist I was pregnant they made me get a form filled out by my dr. saying everything was ok, all they were really worried about was me laying on my back for a long period of time. Good luck, there should be no worries, just give your dr. a call first.

I have a couple of cavities to get filled. I had been to the dentist in August, they are going to wait till after I have the baby.Just to keep it on the safe side. So if you can wait, wait

Like Dez said though there is most likely no harm getting it done now, just check with your doctor first

You should check with your doctor first for anything that you think my harm your baby, but you can get x-rays when you are pregnant so dont worry about that.
